Ingredients For The Strawberry Brownies

Ingredients For The Vanilla Icing


How To Make Instant Pot Strawberry Brownies

  • In a stand mixer or in a bowl if using a hand mixer, mix together the the oil and eggs.
  • Add the strawberry cake mix and continue mixing until combined.
  • Add the milk and mix.
  • Stop mixing and fold in the white chocolate chips.
  • Generously grease the springform pan. You may use round parchment paper for the bottom if you’d like. Grease the parchment paper as well.
  • Pour the strawberry brownie batter into the springform pan and top with more chocolate chips if desired.
  • Cover with aluminum foil.
  • Add water to the instant pot. Check notes below for quantities.
  • Use a sling to lower the brownie into the instant pot. If you don’t have a sling, you may use the trivet. The sling makes it easier to remove the brownie from the instant pot.
  • Close the lid and cook on high pressure for 50 minutes with a natural release of 10 minutes.
  • Once the brownie is finished cooking, gently remove it from the instant pot and uncover.
  • Let it cool to room temperature before removing it from the springform pan and cutting into squares.
  • Top with homemade vanilla icing and enjoy.

How To Make Vanilla Icing

  • In a bowl, combine the powdered sugar, milk and vanilla extract.
  • Mix until combined.
  • Top the strawberry brownies with the vanilla icing and enjoy.


  • Check for doneness by inserting a toothpick down the center of the strawberry brownie. There might be pieces of brownie clinging to the toothpick but it shouldn’t be wet. I found that 50 minutes of cooking with a 10 minute natural release cooked the brownies perfectly.
  • Cut the brownie into squares then cut the squares in half if you wish. Otherwise, you’ll have some very large pieces since they’re cooked in a round springform pan.
  • Use 1 cup of water for a 6 qt, 1 1/2 cups for an 8 qt and 2 cups for a 10 qt instant pot.
  • The white chocolate chips are optional but I love the texture and taste it provides.
  • Always read your instant pot manual before using it.
