  • 2 cups heavy cream

Instructions

INSTANT POT STRAWBERRY CAKE

  • You will need INSTANT POT
    Wash and chop the strawberries. Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of cake mix over the strawberries, and toss them to coat evenly. Keep it aside.
  • In a large bowl, combine cake mix, water, oil, and eggs into a smooth cake batter.
  • Fold in the strawberries into the cake batter.
  • Take a 7 or 8 inch, cake pan. Grease the pan with some cooking oil.
    Note: Recipe uses 8 inch, corning ware.
  • Pour the cake batter into the pan. Cover the pan with some aluminium foil.
  • Add 1 1/2 cups of water to the inner pot of the Instant Pot. Place a trivet.
  • With the help of the foil sling, gently lift the cake pan, and place it inside the inner pot. Fold the foil sling over the pan.
  • Close the Instant Pot lid, vent to sealing. Turn ON Instant Pot to MANUAL / PRESSURE COOK (high), 60 minutes. Followed by 20 minutes, of natural pressure release.
  • Carefully, lift the pan out using the foil sling. Remove the foil, and let cake cool completely.
  • Run knife through the edges of the pan, and carefully invert the cake onto a plate.

FOR WHIP CREAM FROSTING

  • To make the whip cream frosting, you can use a stand mixer with whisk attachment, or hand held beater. In a bowl, add chill heavy cream, confectioner’s sugar, and vanilla extract.
  • Start whisking at low speed, for 3-5 minutes. Gradually, increase the speed, and whisk the mixture, until medium to stiff peaks form. Stop mixing once the mixture reaches to a firm stage. Over beating the mixture will result into grainier cream frosting.
  • Frost the cake with fresh whip cream. Decorate with few fresh strawberries. Enjoy this moist, decadent Strawberry cake!!
