  • 1 1/3 c cake mix basically half a box of cake mix, we used triple chocolate fudge
  • 1/2 c buttermilk
  • 1 egg
  • 1 c chocolate chips white
  • 1/2 tsp coconut oil


  • Mix together your cake mix, buttermilk and egg well.
  • Spray the inside holes in your egg mold with non stick spray.
  • Put a trivet inside your pot with 1.5 c water.
  • Fill your egg mold holes 3/4 of the way full and cover with foil, use a foil sling to lower egg mold on to your trivet.
  • Close lid and steam valve and set to pressure high for 12 minutes.
  • Allow to naturally release steam for 2 minutes, then let out rest of steam.
  • Take mold out of pot. Take off foil immediately and allow to cool for a few minutes.
  • Pop donut holes out of mold and set on a paper towel, or enjoy them immediately if you aren't adding frosting.
  • If adding frosting put white chocolate chips and coconut oil dollop in the middle. Put in microwave for 30 seconds.
  • Stir, then microwave for additional 30 seconds. Stir until lumps smooth out.
  • Spoon white chocolate over tops of donut holes, place on non stick surface (parchment paper works), then sprinkle with sprinkles etc... Allow to cool and harden then enjoy.
