Total Time 30 minutes

No need to turn on the oven to make this apple dessert! Instant Pot Apple Cobbler uses 4 ingredients and won't take up valuable oven space on Thanksgiving day. Best of all, it's full of that irresistible cinnamon apple flavor you crave.


For the Filling:

  • 2 cans (20 oz each) apple pie filling
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

For the Topping:

  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • ½ cup unsalted butter (1 stick), melted
  • 1 ½ cups water, for the bottom of the Instant Pot


    1. In a large mixing bowl, combine apple pie filling and cinnamon.  Pour into the bottom of a 7-inch springform pan that fits into your Instant Pot.  
    2. In a medium bowl, combine the cake mix and melted butter until crumbly texture forms. Sprinkle the cake mixture over the apple pie filling.  Cover tightly with foil.  
    3. Add 1 ½ cups of water to the bottom of a 6 qt. Instant Pot.  Place the springform pan onto a trivet or sling and lower it into the Instant Pot.
    4. Secure the lid on top and make sure the valve is set to SEALING.  Select HIGH PRESSURE for a cook time of 25 minutes.  
    5. After the cooking time has ended, allow the pressure to release for ten minutes and then do a quick release by turning the valve to VENTING.
    6. Remove the pot by lifting out with the sling/tivet.  Remove the foil and allow to cool at least 30 minutes before eating.  Serve with ice cream or whipped cream if desired.


  • SUBSTITUTIONS: Swap the yellow cake mix for a spice cake mix instead!
  • Add pecans or sliced almonds to the top for a nutty crunch!
  • Recipe tested in a 6qt Instant Pot. Times do not include the time it takes for the IP to come to pressure (about 10-15 minutes).
