It was a bright beautiful Saturday morning! I have had this wonderful brownie mix in our pantry for a few weeks now, just staring at me every time I opened the door.I am going to show you how to make brownies in the Instant Pot.

I thought to myself “You know chocolate is somewhat healthy for you, why can’t I make these for breakfast?” Well, I looked around an no one was stopping me!~

I thought this would be a good experiment in my Instant Pot. Today I am sharing how to make brownies in your Instant Pot. I did learn something a long the way for next time.

Next time I would definitely add two eggs instead of one. Typically for a fluffier brownie you do want two eggs. I thought I would try to get away with one. Don’t get me wrong, there was absolutely nothing wrong with them. I just happen to like a fluffier brownie. Your call on what you like.

These brownies were quite decadent. Let’s just say, I woke up real fast with a a brownie and my morning coffee. Certainly jumped started my day. I have made cakes before in my Instant Pot, but never brownies. You can check out my last cake I made HERE. 

Perhaps a Crownie would be a better option for you! That is if you really want to take things up a notch. Find our Crownie recipe HERE:


They were triple fudge after all:)

Just a little more fluffier would have made my day even better. But that’s ok, I learned for next time.

You can find my Springform/Bundt pan on Amazon HERE with today’s special featured price.

I use this pan for so many meals, sides and desserts. You can find all that I have made using the 7′ Spring form pan HERE

Pressure Cooker Brownies


  • 1 Box Brownie Mix What You Needs Varies By The Box, Follow The Directions
  • 1 Cup Water


  • Add one cup of water in the bottom of your pot and set to normal saute while you are preparing your brownie mix. This will ensure a faster way to get your pot up to pressure once you put your brownies in the pot.
  • Per the usual box instructions mix your brownies accordingly.
    NOTES: As mentioned if you want fluffier, add the extra egg.
  • Lightly spray your 7' inch Spring form pan. I used my custom pan with the Bundt portion in.
  • Pour the entire batter in the pan being sure the batter is evenly spread. I always like to secure a little tin foil on the bottom of my pan creating a little lip just to be on the safe side in case of any leakage. It can happen and if in the case it does, you will not have a mess in your pot.
  • Place your pan on a trivet or home made tin foil sleeve with handles to you can lower your pan in the pot with ease.
  • Lightly cover your pan with foil in order to avoid moisture and water dripping on the brownies. You can always blot off any excess once finished.
  • Always add a cup of water to the pot.
  • Close the lid and set on seal. Set your pot to Manual High Pressure for 35 minutes.
  • Once finished do a Quick release to get the rest of the pressure out of the pot before opening the lid. (I always unplug when I do this part)
  • Remove pan and let cool. You can then release the spring and flip over your cake if you have the bundt portion.
  • If not simply cut, sprinkle with powdered sugar and nuts if you so desire.
