Instant Pot Angel Food Cake

Angel cake is really easy to make on your own. While you can use a boxed angel food cake, I prefer making homemade. It has a fresher flavor in my opinion.

The best part of all, you might have all these ingredients in your pantry and fridge.

What Do You Need For Angel Food Cake

How To Make Angel Food Cake

  • Start by whisking your room temperature egg whites until they are foamy in texture. This takes about 2 minutes.
  • Now add in water, sugar, vanilla, salt, and cream of tartar. Whisk for 5 minutes on high, or until stiff peaks and white and glossy.
  • Slowly fold in sifted flour and sprinkles and pour in your bundt pan.
  • Cover and cook according to the printable recipe card listed below.

What Is An Angel Food Cake Pan

I used the 7 inch fluted Bundt Pan that I snagged on Amazon to make my Instant Pot Angel Food Cake.

I have not tried to use any other style of pan, but there could be other pans that work just fine. Also, I used my silicone sling to lower the cake in and lift it out with ease.

Why Do You Sift Flour First

You can use all-purpose flour or cake flour in this angel food cake recipe. Now, I recommend sifting your flour first.

This will help keep your cake nice and light, and you won’t run the risk of flattening as you fold in the flour. Sifted flour gives you that light and fluffy texture you want with angel cake.

Tips For Making Homemade Angel Food

  • Room Temperature Ingredients are very important. You need warm water and room temperature eggs.
  • Sift the flour for the ultimate light and fluffy texture.
  • Skip the sprinkles if you want and serve it plain with strawberries, or frost your angel food cake.
  • Make sure to cover your bundt pan tightly with aluminum foil. You do not want condensation to drip into your cake.
  • Gently Fold In Flour. If you are to fast to mix, it will flatten the stiff peaks and you won’t end up with a light cake.
  • Run a knife in the angel food cake dough once you pour into the pan. This will get rid of any bubbles of air in the cake. I also tap my pan on counter to try and press out bubbles as well.

Instant Pot Angel Food Cake is a homemade angel cake recipe that is light, fluffy and full of sprinkles. The ultimate Instant Pot dessert. Here is an angel cake that will win over a crowd.


  • 6 large egg whites, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons warm temperature water
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup all purpose flour, sifted (can use cake flour)
  • 2 teaspoons sprinkles (optional)


  1. Start by whisking your egg whites in a stand mixer or hand mixer. You will whip for around 2 minutes or until your eggs are frothy looking.
  2. Now turn the mixer off and pour in water, sugar, vanilla, cream of tartar, and salt.
  3. Turn mixer on high and mix for 5 minutes. You want your angel food cake mix to be very fluffy and white in color.
  4. Turn mixer off, and slowly add in your sifted flour and sprinkles. Use a spatula to fold in the flour. Don't overmix or it will deflate.
  5. Pour your angel food cake dough into an ungreased bundt pan. I used a 7 inch Instant pot pan. Wrap tightly in aluminum foil.
  6. Pour 1 cup of water into the bottom of your Instant Pot. Then take your trivet or sling and lower your cake.
  7. Put the lid on and make sure the vent is sealed. Select high pressure and cook for 22 minutes with a 5-minute natural release.
  8. Once your angel food cake is done, remove foil and make sure the cake is fully cooked. Then flip upside down on a cooling rack to cool.
  9. Use a butter knife to run along the edge of the cooled angel cake to help release it from the pan.
  10. Then slice and serve your Instant Pot Angel Food cake with ice cream, fresh strawberries, whipped cream or eat alone.


If you are using an 8 quart instant pot use 1 1/2 cup of water in the pot, and 1 cup for a 6 quart instant pot.
