How To Make Instant Pot Almond Cake Bites
Whip up your almond extract flavored batter, and then use a cookie scoop to spoon it into your greased egg bite molds. Cover with your silicone lid, or aluminum foil.
Bake in the pressure cooker for 10 minutes with a quick release. Then gently push on the silicone molds to help unstick the cakes. Flip upside down to get them out of the mold.
Dust with powdered sugar if you would like!
How Many Cake Bites Does This Recipe Make
This recipe makes 7 cake bites! BUT, if you want to double the recipe you can stack your egg bite molds on top of each other.
They need to be covered, or you will get water in the cakes making them soggy.
The almond cakes don’t rise that much so it is totally fine to stack the molds on top of each other.
What Sling Did I Use
I get asked this all the time when I use my orange sling. I bought this Silicone sling on Amazon! It works great and I just use it in replace of my metal trivet.
If you don’t have the silicone sling, feel free to use your metal trivet. You just don’t want your egg bite molds sitting in the water.
How To Store Leftovers
If you don’t devour these bite-size cakes right away, hats off to you! All you want to do is allow your almond cakes to fully cool. Then transfer to an airtight container or bag and store on the counter at room temperature.
You can store them in the fridge as well if you prefer a cold cake texture.
Can You Freeze These Almond Cakes
Absolutely! Just don’t dust with powdered sugar. You will find it melts when frozen. Allow your cakes to fully cool.
Then store in the freezer for up to three months. Thaw on the counter for an hour and then devour.
These cake bites make a great quick and easy snack. I have doubled the recipe in the past to store some for later.
