Instant Pot Pineapple Upside Down Bites

If you have an egg bite mold, then you will want to try this out. I love my egg bite molds and I had to create a sweet treat for my kids the other day. So I whipped these up and they were gobbled up rather fast.

How Long Does It Take To Make Pineapple Upside Down Bites in Pressure Cooker

You will pressure cook for 12 minutes followed by a natural release. You do not want to do a quick release on these bites. Once you remove your egg molds let them set for 10 minutes. Then you can work at removing them from the molds.

How Many Egg Bite Molds Can You Cook In The Instant Pot At Once

You can cook two molds at once. Then remove those and then finish off the rest of the cake bites. Batch cooking is great cause the cakes need to sit in the molds for a bit once you remove so it allows time for the first set to cool for a bit. 

How To Store Pineapple Upside Down Cake Bites 

I like to store these cake bites in the refrigerator. Because of the fruit used I find it helps extend the shelf life of your cakes. They taste great cold but you can always warm them up by letting them sit out on the counter for 30 minutes or so. 

Can I Use Fresh Cherries To Top Pineapple Upside Down Cake Bites

Yes, you are more than welcome to do a fresh cherry instead of maraschino cherries. If you use fresh cherries just make sure that you get the seed out of the cherry. Then you can use them to replace maraschino easily.

Instant Pot Pineapple Upside Down Bites, a new and tasty luscious dessert. These bite-size cakes will melt in your mouth.


  • 1 Can Pineapple Chunks, liquid reserved.
  • 1 Cup Pineapple Juice (from reserved liquid)
  • 1/3 Cup Melted Butter
  • 2/3 Cup Brown Sugar
  • Maraschino Cherries
  • 1 Box Yellow Cake Mix
  • 1/2 Cup Oil
  • 3 Eggs
  • Large egg bite molds


  1. Spray egg bite molds with canola spray.
  2. Drain pineapple juice from the can. You need 1 cup of pineapple juice.
  3. Stir together melted butter & brown sugar. Pour Aprx. 1 TSP or liquid mixture into each egg bite mold.
  4. Put in two pineapple chunks and 2 maraschino cherries.
  5. Prepare cake mix according to the package directions but replace the 1 cup of water with the pineapple juice.
  6. Pour batter into each egg bite mold. Leave a bit of room beneath the top to allow for the batter to expand a bit.
  7. Place your trivet into your inner pot. Pour 1 cup of water into your pot.  Place your egg bites mold on top of your trivet.  Place two rings from mason jars to act as a spacer, so you can place another egg bite mold on top.
  8. Close your lid and set to sealing.
  9. Set your pot to manual high pressure for 12 minutes. Do a natural release for 10 minutes and than release the remaining pressure.
  10. Allow pineapple upside down bites to cool before removing them from the egg bite mold, 10 min should be enough time. Turn the egg bite mold over and push down in the center of each mold. Allowing for easier removal of your bites. Enjoy!


You will have enough batter to make 4 egg bite molds. You will only be able to fit 2 at a time in your pot to cook.

Is there another spacer we could use if we don't have Mason jar lids?


Saturday 16th of October 2021

Four egg bite molds would be 28 servings, not 48. Is your nutrition info based on 48 servings or 28?

Do you but the lids on the egg molds or cover with foil? I'm worried about the cake being wet from water dropping off the cooker lid


Monday 13th of July 2020

Your recipe calls for 1/2 cup oil, but I don’t see where you use it. I’m confused.

It is to be used with the cake mix
