1 C Semi sweet chocolate chips

½ C heavy whipping cream

Valentine’s Day Sprinkles


In a large bowl, mix together the vanilla cake mix, eggs, water, and oil.

Grease and flour a 7 inch heart shaped bundt pan.

Pour the cake batter into the bundt pan, about ¾ way full

Add 1 cup water to the inner bowl of instant pot. Place trivet inside.

Make a foil sling and carefully lower the filled bundt pan on top of trivet in the instant pot. Loosely fold foil sling over the top of the bundt pan.

Close lid and set the Instant Pot to “sealing.”

Cook on high pressure for 35 minutes.

Once the time is up, use a quick pressure release.

Let cool on a cooling rack for 30-60 minutes.

Use a knife to gently separate the cake from the sides of the bundt pan and empty the cake onto a wire rack above a cookie sheet

To make the Chocolate Ganache

(You can do this while your cake cooks in the Instant Pot)

Using a small pot, heat up the heavy whipping cream until slightly boiling.

Pour chocolate chips into a heat safe bowl.

Pour heavy whipping cream over the chocolate chips and whisk until smooth.

Pour the ganache over the cake and let sit for a few minutes.

Sprinkle some Valentine’s Day sprinkles over the cake

Allow ganache to set before cutting and enjoying!
