Make this adorable bundt cake in any size of Instant Pot… Including the 3qt Mini!
- 1 egg
- 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 1/4 cup oil (we used avocado oil)
- juice and zest of 1 small orange or tangerine
- 1/2 tsp orange extract (optional)
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 cup (128g) cassava or all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/3 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
In a medium bowl whisk together the egg, applesauce, oil, juice and zest of the orange, orange extract and sugar.
In another small bowl stir together the flour, baking soda and salt.
Dump the flour mixture into the wet mixture and stir gently just until combined. Do not over-mix.
Gently stir in the chocolate chips
Grease a 3-cup bundt pan with oil or butter, pour in the batter and spread it out evenly.
To the Instant Pot add in 1 cup of water and the steaming trivet.
Place the bundt pan on the steaming trivet (no need to cover)
Lock the lid and set the steam release valve to the sealing position.
Select Pressure Cook (High) and set the cook time to 30 minutes.
When cook time is complete, allow the pressure to release naturally for 5 minutes, then quick release any remaining pressure.
Cool the cake in the pan on a wire rack for 5 minutes and then invert the cake onto the wire rack to remove it from the pan and cool for another 10 minutes.
Cut into wedges, serve and enjoy!
We tested this recipe with both cassava flour and with regular all-purpose flour and they both turned out great!
We also tested this recipe using three teeny 1-cup bundt pans. We cooked them for 22 minutes and they also turned out great!

Hi, all! I made Charity’s great recipe tonight! I probably shouldn’t have used cake flour but I did, and it did turn out ok but the batter was way thinner. All’s well that ends well, though! Thanks for a great recipe! I’ll try this again! Take care and very best wishes to all, including Po!
I made this, but with pecans instead of chocolate chips. It was amazing!!!
