Instant Pot Brownie

 

I had so much fun trying to bake these dessert recipes in an Instant Pot for the first time ever! I can't believe how well this worked after a little trial and error. I tested it a bunch of different ways and this is the ones that worked the best. I've also started to test bake other recipes as well!

Yield: makes one 7" brownie

 

Things you'll need

Ingredients
  • ½ cup all purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
  • ½ cup semisweet chocolate chips
Instant Pot
  • 2 cups water
Equipment
  • 7” cake pan
  • Parchment paper
  • Foil
  • Hand mixer
  • Trivet
  • 8 qt. Instant pot

Let's get started!

  1. Grease and line the bottom of the cake pan with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and salt.
  3. In a large bowl, using an electric hand mixer cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  4. Add in the eggs one at a time and mix until well combined.
  5. Add the vanilla extract and mix again.

  10. Pour the water in the Instant Pot.
  11. Place the spring form pan on the trivet and slowly lower into the Instant Pot.
  12. Lock the lid and turn the valve to sealing. Press the Pressure Cook button and set the timer for 50 minutes at high pressure.
  13. Allow the steam to naturally release for 15 minutes then vent to quick release any residual steam.
  14. Carefully remove the lid and the pan.
  15. Uncover and let it cool in the pan for 10 minutes.
