Pressure Cooker Simple Coconut Cake with just 5 ingredients is messy, unrefined, SO EASY, and delicious!
There’s nothing dainty about this recipe, you guys. It’s messy, it’s pretty, but in a scattered way, and it might not be your version of a perfect slice of cake. But, hear me out. When you don’t have to deal with uneven cake layers, or it being too dry, or even dealing with all the decorating, it’s a win! This is essentially a dump cake, so all the ingredients (all 5 of them), get mixed together, plopped into a baking dish inside your PC, and left to steam and puff up and cook.
What results is a moist, coconut(y) to the max luscious gooey cake to be devoured!
If you’re wondering about what sorts of dishes can go in your pressure cooker, Laura over at Hip Pressure Cooking has put together a helpful guide. I have just a few dishes that I mainly use, and all of them are dishes I use elsewhere in my kitchen. So, there’s no need to purchase anything that will be a one-off pressure cooker only item.
This is another dessert that would be great to make for Valentines Day tomorrow! Maybe serve this coconut dump cake to your kids and then bring out yesterday’s cheesecake for you and your hubby 🙂
