We had our very first Facebook live event, and it was a blast! For me, it was like having my own cooking show!
I have been fascinated by all the recipes using the Instant Pot for baking cakes and cheesecakes. Come on, you did not believe it the first time you heard it, either! A cake, in an Instant Pot? I am a certified pastry chef – seriously, making a cake in a pressure cooker seemed a little weird.
But then I saw the recipe for this super easy cake on the blog Instantly Delicious, by Julie Han. I love love love love anything lemon. I knew I could get some local blueberries to go with the cake, and, we wanted to try out the Facebook live idea…so, a show was born.
Our office is full of helpful and enthusiastic eaters.
This was my first attempt at wrapping a pan in foil and creating a foil sling. I discovered along the way that the recipe did not call for wrapping the pan, but, I had to try it anyway – it is cool, but not needed for this particular cake.
After the cake came out of the IP, I waited until it was cool – helping it along a little bit by placing it in the fridge – and then I glazed it. I had sugared some blueberries and added some of the lemon zest to them, too. Yum! Because this cake was for the show, I had to keep the enthusiasts at bay after it was finished, because…cute!
We prepped and made a whole other cake, so after that one was finished, everyone got to enjoy a piece or two of the first one.
This cake is moist, a little bit dense, and oh, so tasty! It is so easy to make and it did indeed convince me that a cake can be made in this very unconventional way. If you are looking for a great recipe to try as your first IP cake, this is the ONE to try, for sure! The recipe is over on Julie’s blog.
