Instant Pot Chocolate Peanut Butter Banana Cake Bites

Hello there friends! Have you ever had such a craving that you just had to either run out and get it, or make it at home? We have had those sort of cravings many times, usually with ice cream. This morning, it was a hankering for chocolate and peanut butter. Low and behold we happen to have everything in the pantry to satisfy the need.

This was a double win for me because I was able to make not only the cake bites but a small cake as well all from one box of chocolate cake mix. I have done this experiment before making a chocolate chip brownie cake HERE

For this recipe, you will need a chocolate cake mix, a banana, peanut butter, eggs, and oil. We used our flower pan HERE and our egg bite mold HERE and was able to make both at the same time using our 6 Qt. Instant Pot.

Typically I never cover my bake goods. In today’s experiment, I did cover the egg bite mold with tin foil in order to stack my flower pan on top.

At first, I thought it was a disaster after removing the pan and mold out of the Instant Pot. I did only loosely cover the egg bite mold and maybe that was the fault of the overflow. As I said, I don’t typically cover my baked goods. No worries, it was easy to take a butter knife and skim off that excess. Of course, we ate that excess too!

The cake however was perfect when removed from the pot.

After letting both the cake and the bites cool for a few minutes I was able to remove them from the pan and mold and serve warm. Even if you do not eat this amazing dessert and cake bites soon there after they will still be amazing later on when you get a hankering.

Equipment

  • Instant Pot
  • Ninja Foodi
  • Pressure Cooker
  • Bamboo Spurtles¬†

Ingredients
  

  • 1 Chococolate cake mix Duncan Hines preferably
  • 10 tsp Peanut Butter
  • eggs Whatever your cake mix calls for
  • oil Whatever your cake mix calls for
  • water Whatever your cake mix calls for, plus ONE cup to add to the pot
  • 1 ripe banana
  • Coconut, butter, or baking spray for molds and pan

Instructions
 

  • First mix your cake and ripe banana according the box directions. We like to hand mix our cakes using Spurtles.
    Otherwise they can get too over mixed and overflow in the pot.
  • Next, prepare your egg bite mold and cake pan by lightly spraying the inner cavity evenly.
  • Spoon half cake batter in each mold, only filling the mold half way, then adding in a teaspoon of peanut butter to each mold, then topping off with more of the chocolate cake to be sure the peanut butter is covered.
  • Same step with using the cake pan if you are using both a pan and egg bite mold.
  • Add one cup of water to your pressure pot.
  • Set egg bite mold on a trivet, lightly cover with tin foil and set your cake pan on top of the egg bite mold. You may reverse this and that may avoid that little mess I had with the mold.
  • Set your pot on High Pressure for 22 minutes. When time is up, do a Quick release. Carefully remove from the pot and set to cool before popping out cake bites and inverting our cake on a plate. Enjoy served warm, or cool. Any way will be delicious.
