Everyone in my family loves them and I’m sure yours will too.  The next time you get a hankering for pumpkin, go ahead and make these. This recipe would also pair nice with a delicious pumpkin drink or latte. Go ahead and make this instant pot pumpkin chocolate chip cake and let me know what you think!

Ingredients and Directions:

First you will make your batter with just a few of these ingredients.
Instant Pot Using Pumpkin Puree
In a small mixing bowl, add flour, pumpkin pie spice and baking soda. Mix well.
In a large mixing bowl, beat butter and sugar on medium high speed until light and fluffy (about 3-5 minutes) scraping down the bowl every minute or so. Beat in egg and vanilla, then pumpkin puree.
Add half of the flour mixture and beat just until combined. Then add remaining and beat until combined. Finally, fold in chocolate chips.
Next, you will want to grease two small bundt pans with nonstick cooking spray, then pour the batter into the pans. My small bundt pans holds about 2 cups, 16.5 ounces, 1/2 liter or 1/2 quart. Here is the pan I used. I actually grabbed it at Home Goods.

Top with one piece of paper towel and one piece of foil.

Loosely wrap the foil and paper towel around the pan.

Set the pan onto the instant pot rack. 

Place 1.5 cups of water into the instant pot and place the rack, with the cake, into the pot.

Finally, seal the lid and close the pressure release valve. Set the instant pot to manual, high pressure for 20 minutes. Let the instant pot naturally release pressure for an additional 10 minutes after cooking. Carefully remove the cake, discard the paper towel and foil and let set to cool completely before removing from the pan and serving. Add whipped topping for serving and enjoy!
