Instant Pot Red Velvet Cake

With Kahlua and Bailey’s Cream Cheese Frosting

Anybody that knows me knows how much I love red velvet cake. It’s been my favorite pretty much my whole life. However, all red velvet cake is not created equally. Most of them are just red cakes, in my opinion, and miss the whole velvet aspect – which is what makes them special. Well, I think this Instant Pot red velvet cake hits the mark!

 

Before you throw tomatoes about baking in an Instant Pot…

It seems that every time I post a recipe that uses an Instant Pot to bake, I get so many negative comments. Not because of the flavor or anything, but because I’m not sticking with tradition and using the oven. So let me just say this… I like using my Instant Pot. I like being creative when I cook and trying new things. When I figure something out that I think is worth sharing (like this Instant Pot red velvet cake), I share it. I don’t expect everyone to like it or try it. But there’s no need to be rude about other people doing something – which is quite frankly delicious! That’s all 🙂

Plus… IT HAS BOOZE!

      No, we typically use a 3-inch trivet when baking to insure the pan doesn’t come into contact with the water below.

    What are you doing to me? I don’t like cake but this wasn’t like a cake it was like a Brownie texture. It’s a more moist texture. Now, where’s my ice cream?
