Here’s a yummy pressure cooker breakfast bundt cake full of eggs, biscuits, ham or bacon & more! Make it in your Instant Pot or Ninja Foodi and enjoy it for brunch today.
I made this pressure cooker breakfast bundt cake not knowing how it would turn out and was surprised to find it out it worked amazingly well!! Packed with eggs, leftover ham, onions and biscuits it was hearty and full of flavor! Definitely on the top of our quick and easy Instant Pot recipes on The Typical Mom blog.

I made this breakfast bundt cake in the oven a while back. Then made an Instant Pot breakfast casserole with hash browns as well. This is bacon egg and cheese bundt cake is a nice cross between the two though and looks so pretty when it’s done!
This particular bundt pan to make our pressure cooker breakfast is a must because of it’s size, shape, and non stick coating.
It was so good I tell you…..
I started this because I had leftover ham after cooking an Instant Pot ham and hate wasting food.
So…..I thought I would give this a whirl and see if it would turn out well.
- Amazing is all I have to say. You can make it in your Ninja Foodi too.
Not all I make in my pressure cooker the first time work out well, this is true.
Figuring out the timing on it is the hardest part since you can’t see it like if you put it inside the oven or something.
It’s kinda’ a guess when you’re developing a recipe but 30 minutes worked perfectly for this to ensure the biscuits were cooked through and the eggs weren’t still runny at all.
You could easily substitute the diced ham for bacon bits or precooked ground sausage in your egg mixture I’m sure. I am going to use sausage next time and will update with a pic. when I do that.
Such a pretty savory bundt cake idea right?? Would present well at a brunch and feeds a fair amount since it is rather dense, but FULL of flavor I tell you.
- If you allow it to cool at least 5 minutes it is easy to slice through as you can see on the bottom photo here and each bite had plenty of egg and ham.
You could also add a bit of cheese, I think 1/4 cup would work well. I didn’t this time because my husband is dairy free and wanted him to try it…and he loved it!
This is what you’ll need to make our pressure cooker breakfast bundt cake

- Diced ham – I used leftover ham and it was fabulous, could use real crumbled bacon or bacon bits
- Diced onion

- Garlic salt
- Could add a bit of cheese if desired, maybe 1/4 c shredded (I did not this time)

Time needed: 30 minutes.
Instant Pot Bundt Cake
- Mix ingredients
Scramble your eggs in a bowl. Cut each Grands refrigerated biscuit into 9 pieces and put into the bowl with the egg.
Add your diced ham, garlic and seasoned salt and diced onions. (could add 1/4 c. cheese too) Fold this mixture together until biscuits are coated well with egg.
Spray the inside of your 7″ bundt pan with non stick spray and pour your mixture in. Cover it with foil allowing the top to be a bit domed so it can rise inside the pan a bit.
Put 1 1/2 c. of water inside your pressure cooker and put a trivet at the bottom. Make a sling out of foil and lower your breakfast bundt cake down on to the trivet.
Set to pressure high for 30 minutes. Allow it to naturally release (I waited 20 minutes). Uncover and cool a bit so when you flip it over it stays in tact. Slice and enjoy!
