  • Mix together eggs and cake mix. Fold in pie filling (can use any flavor).
  • Spray non stick spray inside 7" springform pan.
  • Pour cake mixture inside pon and cover with foil leaving a dome on top with foil so when cake rises it doesn't stick.
  • Put trivet inside Instant Pot or pressure cooker with 2 c of water, put pot with cake mix on top of trivet (use a foil sling to lift in and out easily).
  • Close steam valve. Set to manual, pressure, high, for 50 minutes. Allow to naturally release steam when done.
  • Lift out carefully and remove foil.
  • Allow to completely cool on a cooling rack then release side of springform pan, remove outer ring. Put plate on top and gently flip over, remove bottom.
  • Put some frosting in a bowl and microwave for about 15 seconds so it is easy to pour on top.
  • Slice and serve!
