This caramel apple pecan Instant Pot coffee cake is such a perfect pair with my cup of coffee in the morning that I just had to share it with you, it’s one of our favorite dessert Instant Pot recipes. Sponsored by Folgers. (originally published 9/17, affiliate links present)

If you love those few moments in the morning when it’s quiet and you can sit down to relax a warm cup of coffee. Add a moist piece of coffee cake and it’s a piece of heaven

Ok, so I don’t always get a moment of silence in my house with three girls getting ready for school, but I always try to take a moment to get going for the busy day ahead.

Let’s start with a few basic tips:

For reference, this is the pressure cooker I have and use for all recipe creations.

Pressure Cooker Coffee Cake

Paired with a cup of coffee in the morning and I was ready to go.

So here’s how you make it, well the coffee cake that is. I don’t think I need to show you how to make a pot of coffee. 

You can bake this in the oven, but if you have one of these fancy pressure cookers you should try this Instant Pot dessert at home.

Baking sweet breads in it makes them incredibly moist. My children and I agree that it is the only way to go really anymore.

Another reason why I love using my Instant Pot is this. When it’s 100 degrees outside I am NOT about to turn on my oven. Sorry. Not happening.

  • This Instant Pot coffee cake comes out perfectly moist with the little balls of caramel I baked within it. 

The picture above is once it is done and taken out of my pressure cooker.

Yes it doesn’t look like a traditional coffee cake right now. Once you flip it upside down though on to a plate, it’s just how you’d envision it.

The trick is using this mini bundt pan below and allowing it to FULLY cool inside the pan. This allows it to stiffen up and stay in tact when it is gently flipped over.

  2. Layer ingredients

    Divide your batter and brown sugar mixture in half now. (remember, this makes 2 bundt cakes in the IP or 1 large bundt in the oven)

    Spoon in 1/3 of half of your brown sugar mixture into bundt pan, then spoon in 1/2 of your divided coffee cake batter. 
    Spoon in another 1/3 of your brown sugar mixture on top of batter inside your bundt pan.

    Put the remaining 1/2 of your coffee cake batter on top of your brown sugar/pecan sprinkles making sure bundt pan is 3/4 full, no more. Sprinkle remaining brown sugar mix on top.

    Put a piece of paper towel across the whole pan, followed by a piece off foil over your bundt pan. Then make a sling by rolling up a piece of foil like a bandana and place underneath.

  4. Cool

    Carefully lift bundt pan out using foil sling handles. Remove foil and paper towel and set on a cooling rack until completely cool. (so it can continue to bake and stiffen up)

Fall really is a great time of year to reflect, spend time with family and friends, and enjoy the holidays together.

Having an easy recipe on hand that screams fall and pairs nicely with a nice warm cup of coffee is perfect when I have company coming over.

Sometimes I just want to sit down with my family curled up in my favorite blanket, and watch a movie together too.

I made half a recipe and used my 6- cup bundt pan. It was heavenly delight! The only thing I did different is that I didn’t use quite all the brown sugar mixture. It didn’t need it. It was plenty sweet, but not too sweet. The texture was perfect...which is hard to find in IP recipes. Thank you for such a wonderful recipe!

Most recipes that call for natural release calls for 10 minutes then quick release the rest of the pressure

Can this recipe be halved for one Bundt Cake?

Yes the only issue would be splitting the eggs but of course you could make just half if you wanted.
