  • 1 c yellow corn meal I used Albers brand
  • 1 c all purpose flour
  • 1/4 c sugar
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 c buttermilk or vitamin d milk
  • 1/3 c vegetable oil
  • 1 egg
  • 1 can chiles minced, we used medium, 4 oz., optional
  • 1 tsp diced jalapeno optional


  • Add all dry ingredients into a bowl and mix well.
  • In another bowl gently whip your egg and add your buttermilk and oil, dump this into your dry mixture and fold together gently until combined.
  • Add can of diced chiles (makes it taste really good and not spicy if you use mild, medium is great too). Fold together.
  • Spray the inside of your 6 c bundt pan (this will fit inside a 6qt and 8qt Instant Pot or other pressure cooker). Pour batter inside.
  • Cover top of bundt pan with a paper towel and then with foil and seal around edges.
  • Put a trivet inside your Instant Pot with 2 cups water.
  • Lower your bundt pan on to your trivet (use a sling so you can lift it back out).
  • Close your lid and steam valve and set to pressure, high, for 35 minutes.
  • Allow to naturally release. Take bundt pan out, remove foil and paper towel and cool on a cooling rack.
  • Gently loosen edges from pan so it will slide out. Put cutting board or plate on top and carefully flip over. Remove bundt pan, cut and serve.
