Can you use any boxed cake mix using these directions?

Will homemade cake batter work too?

  • Yes!
  • The whole cake mix prepared will fit in your 9″ Ninja Foodi bundt pan
  • If your cake is very light and fluffy it may rise more than ours
    • Carrot cake is quite dense so it didn’t rise a lot

  1. Cake mix – we used this boxed one or you can choose another flavor. Note: I have only used this carrot cake mix in the box. If using a homemade cake batter do not fill bundt pan more than 3/4 of the way full.
    1. Ingredients to make your cake batter
  2. 9″ bundt pan – this is the best one (I’ve tried others and this one is by far the best)
    1. Non stick spray – essential!
  3. Frosting – I do it the cheater way and warm up ready made frosting in a container
  4. Baking in a pressure cooker has never been easier!
Ninja Foodi Cake 2

Pressure cooker cake

Follow the Instant Pot carrot cake directions here if using the pressure cooker setting.

  • for that one you’ll add 1.5 c. water into your pot, place filled bundt pan on trivet
    • Pressure cook high for 28 minutes
    • Allow the pressure to naturally release when done
    • That means do not touch the pressure release valve, steam will gradually release on it’s own
    • This takes approx. 15 minutes
  • Use foil on the top and take off immediately once you lift the bundt pan out
  • Let it cool completely on a cooling rack
  • Gently flip on to a plate so it will slide out of the pan

For the Ninja Foodi cake below using the bake setting you won’t need water or foil!! Printable directions below.

  • 1 box cake mix we used carrot cake boxed cake + ingredients to make batter as directed


  • Lower down a trivet, I like one with handles. Prepare cake mix as directed. Spray non stick spray into your 9" bundt pan and pour your batter in, It will fit an entire prepared box of cake. (other size pans will alter timing)
  • Put bundt pan on trivet and close lid. Press bake, 325 temperature for 20 minutes. Lift lid when dnoe and allow to sit for 5 minutes. Lift out and put on cooling rack outside of pot.
  • Once cooled put a plate on top and gently flip over, cake should fall out easily (that's when the non stick spray will come in handy).
  • Warm frosting and pour on top. Slice and serve.
