Years ago, I used to prepare a dessert similar to this in the oven. I converted the recipe to make in my Instant Pot and now we can enjoy it quickly. Try it with white cake mix and blueberry pie filling, too. It's best served warm with ice cream or whipped cream. —Joan Hallford, North Richland Hills, Texas

Ingredients

  • 1 can (21 ounces) apricot or peach pie filling
  • 2 cups devil's food cake mix
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans, toasted
  • 1/2 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips, optional
  • 1/2 cup butter, cubed
  • Vanilla ice cream, optional

Directions

  1. Spread pie filling in the bottom of a greased 1-1/2-qt. baking dish. Sprinkle with cake mix, pecans and, if desired, chocolate chips. Dot with butter. Cover baking dish with foil.
  2. Place trivet insert and 1 cup water in a 6-qt. electric pressure cooker. Fold an 18x12-in. piece of foil lengthwise into thirds, making a sling. Use the sling to lower the dish onto the trivet. Lock lid; close pressure-release valve. Adjust to pressure-cook on high for 35 minutes. Quick-release pressure. Using foil sling, carefully remove baking dish. Let stand 10 minutes. If desired, serve warm cake with ice cream.
