I cooked this in my 3 quart Instant Pot Duo Nova. I halved the recipe and cooked it in a 6-inch cake tin. I don’t have a cake setting, so just cooked it on the pressure cook setting for 25 minutes. It came out perfectly cooked. I hope this helps!

I did exactly the same as you and cooked it in my Instant Pot Ultra 3 quart. I wasn't sure how long to cook it and on which setting so I was happy when I found your post and mine is now cooked perfectly also. Thanks for the help.

What could I use as a substitute for the oats? I'm allergic to those. Sounds delicious. I want to give it a try! My Instant Pot isn't being used much!

I am not sure what to tell you. I've never tried substitutes. Thanks
Don’t make this!
