Instant Pot Pecan Pie Cinnamon Cake makes a great dessert for Thanksgiving. Hey there friends, meet Jennifer from JENRON DESIGNS. This is one of my fall favorite treats, Instant Pot: Instant Pot Pecan Pie Cinnamon Cake.

Hey Y’all, today I am trying out a fun new little accessory I just got for my Instant Pot, from our very own Debbiedoo’s Home Pressure Cooking line. I will be making a quick and tasty Instant Pot: Instant Pot Pecan Pie Cinnamon Cake which is perfect for entertaining for Thanksgiving.

You may recall back a few weeks ago, I made an amazing Cinnabon monkey bread.

Great For Fall

This recipe is so tasty for the fall and combines two of my favorite flavors in one cake. I also have cinnamon roll icing, though it is completely optional and a Pecan Pie flavor in the form of a cake.

First, mix your flour, baking powder, cinnamon powdered buttermilk, and brown sugar together in a bowl. Then add 2 slightly beaten eggs and 1/2 stick of melted butter. Next stir in 3/4 cup Pecan pieces.

Pretty As a Flower

Then add cake batter to your lightly greased flower bundt pan and place on top of trivet in your Instant Pot and seal the lid. Cook at manual high pressure for 25 minutes. Allow to naturally release pressure for approximately 10 minutes, then remove pan and allow the cake to cool before inverting onto a plate.

You can see the results are beautiful and you could just lightly dust this cake with powdered sugar for a wintery effect but today I have iced the cake with a cinnamon roll icing and topped it with 1/2 cup of chopped pecan pieces.
