  • 1.5 cup Angel Food Boxed Cake Mix (Half the Box)
  • 2 cup Water (Approximately)


  • 3/4 cup Powdered Sugar
  • 1 tbsp Milk
  • 1 tsp Melted Butter


  • Add 1.5 cups of the boxed Angel Food Cake Mix to a large bowl.
  • Add 1/2 Cup + 2 Tablespoons of water to the cake mix and whisk until fluffy (approx. 1 min.)
  • OPTIONAL- this is when you should fold in sprinkles, if using.
  • Gently spoon the mixture into your 4.5" angel food cake pan (until about 3/4 way full) and lightly cover with foil.
  • Add 1.5 cups of water to the bottom of the instant pot followed by the metal trivet that came with your Instant Pot.
  • Carefully place the angel food cake on the trivet and close the pot.
  • Make sure the steam valve is in the closed position.
  • Turn the machine on and set to manual high pressure for 10 minutes.
  • QR once the timer goes off.
  • Remove the lid and lift your pan out.
  • Remove the foil and make sure any condensation on the top doesn't roll off onto the cake.
  • When cooled, gently push the bottom of the pan up to release the cake.
  • Using a small plastic spatula, loosen the cake from the bottom insert to release the rest of the cake from the metal pan.
  • Transfer to a small plate and serve as is or top with our powdered sugar glaze.


  • Add all of the ingredients to a small bowl and mix until creamy. Taste and adjust flavor as preferred.
