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!

@Tracey Purdie,

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.

just tried this--in the IP now. However, 3 cups of dry ingredients (2 cups flour I cup oats) plus wet ingredients milk and applesauce does not make a cake batter that you can "pour" into a pan. I added more milk but we'll see. I still think it's going to be dry but perhaps that moisture from the water in the IP will compensate.

Can non-fat milk be used?

I think non fat will work just fine. Thanks

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!

Yikes. This was the worst thing I’ve ever tasted in my life. It went straight to the compost.
