Pumpkin Banana cake in the Pressure Cooker

Consider me your guinea pig! We have said this before here at Home Pressure Cooking and we continue to mention that we are your official try it, let’s see if works.

Today we are sharing a Pumpkin Banana cake in the Pressure Cooker.

Grant you, we all have different food tastes, so everything we try here won’t be your thing. We are a variety of eaters and I don’t consider us fussy. Therefore you will get a variety of cuisine here. Today it is all about pumpkin and cake, a weight watchers pumpkin banana cake in the Instant Pot. We were skeptical about this cake as I am sure you are too. There are no eggs, no oil, no butter. Hmmm??

I have made weight watcher pumpkin muffins before in the oven. They were great. The Instant Pot is a whole new method though of cooking and I was not sure about this recipe. I decided what the heck, let’s give it a go. I am trying to make healthier choices when cooking and my fall back is always weight watchers. If you missed my cauliflower smashed you can check those out after this amazing pumpkin banana cake.

The chocolate chips are optional. They do add a few more calories, but not many considering I only added 1/4 cup of morsels. I literally had one morsel in my sliver:) But that’s ok, it was just right.  

For this recipe, I actually used fresh pumpkin puree. I had one pumpkin left after I made my homemade pumpkin soup. I didn’t want it to go to waste. You can absolutely use canned pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling) for this recipe. If you want to do fresh, by all means. You can see how I made my pumpkin in the Instant Pot HERE.

The cake was high, dense, and so moist. I LOVE DUNCAN HINES. Yes, that was all in caps because I was hollering how much I love that brand of cake mixes.

This was when I was letting it cool. I always release the spring and remove about 10 minutes after the cake is out of the pot. I do not flip it until it is completely cooled.
