  • 2 cans (21 ounces each) peach pie filling
  • 1 box (15.25 oz.) yellow cake mix
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Vanilla ice cream (optional)


For this recipe, you will need to use pot in pot with a cup of water in the bottom and the pot on a trivet. This will allow steam to create the pressure for it to cook.

Start out by placing the pie filling into the bottom of the instant pot and spread evenly.
Then in a mixing bowl, you will the add cake mix and cinnamon. Pour in melted butter and stir to mix well. (*Note: the mixture will be stiff and hard to mix but continue to mix well)

Sprinkle onto the peaches in the instant pot. Set the instant pot to manual high pressure for 10 minutes. Slow release for 10 minutes and remove the cover. Let set for 5 minutes to cool.
Spoon onto plates and serve with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
