Instant Pot: Triple Chocolate Bundt Cake

Who doesn't love chocolate?! It's definitely one of those desserts my family sees as a special occasion. Well, given the circumstances of 2020, everyday should be treated as a special occasion in my book! 

I had some extra time this week to make this Triple Chocolate Bundt Cake for my family to end our Sunday dinner on a sweet note. This was made in the Instant Pot, making it a recipe recipe that results in a tender cake. If you have any leftover halloween candy, you can chop it up and sprinkle it on top for something even more special!

Instant Pot: Triple Chocolate Bundt Cake


1 box triple chocolate cake mix
3 eggs
1 ¼ cup water
1/2 cup oil

Chocolate Ganache
1 C Semi sweet chocolate chips
½ C heavy whipping cream
1 C mini chocolate chips for topping


Grease and flour a 7 inch bundt pan.

In a large bowl, mix together the cake mix, eggs, water, and oil. Pour the cake batter into the prepared bundt pan, about ¾ way full.

Add 1 cup water to the inner bowl of the instant pot. Place trivet inside.

Make a foil sling and carefully lower filled bundt pan on top of trivet in the instant pot. Loosely fold foil sling over the top of the bundt pan.

Close lid and set to sealing. Cook on high pressure for 35 minutes. Quick pressure release.

Remove from instant pot and let cool on a cooling rack for 30-60 minutes.

Use a knife to gently separate the cake from the sides of the bundt pan and empty the cake onto a wire rack above a cookie sheet.

To make the ganache:
Using a small pot, heat up the heavy whipping cream until slightly boiling.

Add chocolate chips into a heat safe bowl.

Pour heavy whipping cream over the chocolate chips and whisk until smooth.

Pour the ganache over the cake and let sit for a few minutes.
Sprinkle some mini chocolate chips over the cake.

Allow ganache to set before cutting and enjoying!
