This Instant Pot Apple Cake is packed with fresh apples, cinnamon flavor, and tastes amazing. So easy to make for breakfast or dessert!


For the Apples:

  • 3 Granny Smith apples, diced (about 2 ½ cups)
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 Tbsp sugar

For the batter:

  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 2 Tbsp orange juice
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp kosher salt


  1. In a bowl, combine diced apples with cinnamon and sugar. Set this aside!
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine oil, orange juice, sugar, vanilla, and eggs. Whisk by hand until blended.
  3. Add in flour, baking powder, and kosher salt. Mix by hand until combined. The batter will be very thick at this point.
  4. Grease a 7×3-inch push pan with baking spray (or use my homemade cake release).
  5. Spread half of the cake batter in the bottom of the cake pan, using an offset spatula. Top with half of the apple mixture.
  6. Repeat layers and cover the top of the pan with foil.
  7. Pour 1 cup of water in the bottom of pressure cooker. Place cake pan on sling and lower into the Instant Pot.
  8. Secure the lid and make sure the valve on top is set to “SEALING.”
  9. Select HIGH PRESSURE and a cook time of 60 minutes.
  10. When cook time ends, do a quick release of pressure by moving the valve on top to VENTING.
  11. Remove cake by lifting the sling out of the Instant Pot. Remove the foil carefully.
  12. Serve and enjoy warm!
