Instant Pot Lemon Cream Cheese Dump Cake

To say that I have been having a mini obsession with my instant pot would be an understatement.  I am absolutely loving my instant pot and love seeing what new things I can create in it. Since the instant pot is a newer sensation there are still limited recipes available.  Some things have just not been tested yet in the instant pot.  This Instant Pot Lemon Cream Cheese Dump Cake is the first recipe of its type in the instant pot and I could not be more excited.  

One of my most popular recipes is my Lemon Cream Cheese Dump Cake.  I have been actively updating and working on my recipes a lot lately.  So my Instant Pot Lemon Cream Cheese Dump Cake is very much in my mind.  It was pretty automatic that I decided to try my Instant Pot Lemon Cream Cheese Dump Cake recipe in my instant pot and to be completely honest, I was not sure what to expect the results to be. It was either going to be a huge fail or a success.  This recipe was a HUGE success.  

It was as if dump cakes were made to be cooked in an instant pot.  It was pure perfection.  Absolute dump cake magic made in heaven (because don’t we all feel that our instant pots were created in heaven?!). 

The key to a perfect dump cake is making sure you have completely covered your cake batter with butter in your final layer.
