Is This Instant Pot Cake A Dump Cake Recipe

Not quite. You will mix in the butter with the cake mix to form a cake batter. But, a true dump cake you would slice butter on top of your cake. Then drop it in spoonfuls over the strawberry pie filling.

You will find it offers a similar flavor to a dump cake. This is one moist and rich cake that I can't get enough of.

Could I Use A Different Pie Filling

Absolutely. There are many Instant Pot desserts you can make with pie filling. If you want to change the flavor of this strawberry brownie cake, go ahead and reach for any other type of pie filling.

Cherry or a mixed berry would be a great swap.

Instant Pot Supplies

  • Instant Pot Inner Pot - I like to have an extra inner pot available because of how much cooking I do in my Instant Pot. It comes in really handy when I want to put a lid on the inner pot and refrigerate the leftovers, or mix up ingredients the night before to save time at the end of the day.
  • Silicone Lid for Instant Pot- I'm not sure how I lived without this one. Having a silicone lid for my Instant Pot has made life so much easier. It is perfect for adding ingredients a day or two ahead of time.

How To Store Leftover Chocolate Strawberry Cake

You will want to store any of your leftovers in the fridge. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-7 days. It is best when you eat this pressure cooker cake within the first few days.

After a few days, you will find it begins to dry out quite a bit. Eat it cold or toss it in the microwave for a quick reheat, for a fresh out of the oven warmth.
