Pressure Cooker 365 Recipe #83: Upside Down Apple and “Ricotta” Cake

by Kayla K on May 12, 2013

pressure-cooker-apple-cakeToday’s recipe comes courtesy of Hip Pressure Cooking. As always the recipe was fantastic with detailed instructions and step-by-step pictures. The only change I made was substituting cream cheese for the ricotta. I had to cook the cake for 5 extra minutes for a total of 25 minutes.

The cake was delicious, as promised. Although at 25 minutes it was not more efficient than just baking a cake. In the future I think this recipe would be great to try with peaches.


On November 17, 2012 I married the love of my life and met a new love: My pressure cooker!

To spread the love I’m using my pressure cooker every day and sharing the recipes on my blog.

Kyla, just saw your link, your cake looks great! In terms of efficiency, remember that to BAKE a cake you need to pre-heat an oven (mine takes at least 20 minutes to get to cake-baking temperature) and there is no need to do that with a pressure cooker. Also, this cake – maybe because of the moisture – would generally take 35-40 minutes in the oven!

So glad you enjoyed it!
