Most of you know about my Better than Sex Lava Cake. I wanted to try out some pound cake. There is nothing better than a nice pound cake after a big meal. My husband LOVES Lemon pound cake and I never make it because I always have trouble getting pound cake to the right thick consistency. Finally, I was able to accomplish the perfect 7-up Instant Pot Cake. I had one happy hubby over here.

7 Up Instant Pot Cake

Instant Pot Desserts is one thing that can be tricky.  Who would have thought to make an Instant Pot 7-up cake? I cut a corner and reached for a boxed cake mix, but since I dressed it up, no one even knew it came from a box!

Do I Have to Use 7Up or Can I Swap To A Different Soda Flavor

Moist and delicious also a very versatile cake.  You can change this recipe to suit your taste. If you don’t like Instant Pot Lemon Cake than you can use Cherry Coke and Chocolate cake or any flavor cake and soda you may like.  Use the same Instant Pot Directions and I am sure it will turn out just as delicious as this one did.

What Pan Did You Use for 7-Up Instant Pot Cake

I did use my new CHEFMADE 7 Inch Bundt Cake Pan for this recipe, it fits in my 8qt Instant Pot but this one will fit easily in the 6qt as well.

I made a Must Have Instant Pot Accessory Post that this pan is on. I love this pan and it’s very pretty.

Can I Use A Spring Form Pan Instead of A Bundt Cake Pan

Absolutely! Just make sure the pan easily fits into your Instant Pot. I used a bundt cake pan cause that is what I have, but you are welcome to change out the pan to fit what you have on hand.

How To Dress Up The 7 Up Cake

I personally love to dust on powdered sugar. It adds the presentation factor and a slight sweetness. You could also sprinkle on fresh lemon and or lime zest for a pop of color. Or mix milk with powdered sugar to make a sweet glaze to drizzle over the top.


Best Way To Store Instant Pot 7Up Cake

Feel free to store on the counter in an airtight container or even in the fridge. Both methods work great and will keep your cake moist and fresh. You will want to eat your cake within 3-5 days. As each day the cake will become a bit drier in texture.

Can You Freeze 7Up Cake

Yes. Just allow the cake to cool completely then wrap in aluminum foil. Then place in a freezer bag or container and store in the freezer for three months.  Thaw on the counter or in the fridge when you are ready to serve. If you are freezing the whole cake, wait to sprinkle powdered sugar over the top, as it will dissolve into the cake when thawed.

I have also gone ahead and sliced the cake before and froze into individual servings so when I had a craving for a piece of cake I could grab a slice and eat it. Best decision ever!

    1. Can you only purchase a 7″ bundt pan on Amazon? I’ve looked at my stores here in town and they don’t carry 7″ pans. Only 6,8 & 10.

    1. I agree. I don’t understand this either. It doesn’t seem like anything is done in the pot during the sauté time.

      1. I only used the saute while I was preparing so the pot would be warm when I put the cake in and it would take less time to come to pressure 🙂

  1. I made this tonight!! It was delicious! I used a 6 c. bundt pan in a 6 qt. IP. I may have filled it too much, but it didn’t overflow. I did have to even out the bottom which was a little “damp” anyway. Otherwise, PERFECTION! Thank you! So fun!

  3. This is an amazing consistently good recipe. I have made it several times, and it is always received with utter delight. I like to top it with a lemon and powdered sugar (with some lemon zest) glaze and fresh blueberries. Yum! Thank you for this exceedingly easy and delicious recipe!

  4. The cake came out perfect! I couldn’t be more pleased with the result.
    Is the carbonated soda necessary or could a “flat” liquid work as well?
    I was thinking coffee or orange juice or something similar

    1. I used flat ginger ale that had been sitting for a bit. The cake turned out perfectly fine. I think it provides flavor, and color in some instances. I would be curious to see how coffee or juice would work. This recipe is so easy, it would be worth a try.

  5. I didn’t have any 7up but I had a cake mix and didn’t want to heat up the house. I also wanted to try my Egg Bites Cake mold. So I used your recipe for reference and made a few changes, wanted to share in case someone wanted to try this another way because it came out really good.
    I used 1 Cup Almond Milk, .5 Cup Oil, Confetti Cake Mix, 2 Eggs, 2 egg Yolks. I greased the egg molds [made 3 batches=21 Egg Bites], filled them about 3/4 Full. Manual, High Pressure 9 Minutes, Quick Release. They were very moist. They were a weird shape to frost, so I cut them in half and put the frosting on the inside like a little sandwich :). Thanks for your recipe, I wouldn’t have known what to do without that point of reference 🙂

  6. Hi I can’t wait to try this I’m going to make it this morning for a family gathering two questions:
    did you cover it with foil?
    And how long did you wait before you turned it out of the pan?

  7. So glad I found your page. I was searching for a better bundt for my instant pot than the painted Nordic Ware version…. This is fabulous!

  8. I used your recipe and substituted white cake mix and added a small box of strawberry jello to make strawberry cake!

  9. I made this with chocolate cake mix and a bottle of BC raspberry Coke. Couldn’t taste the raspberry but the cake was amazing. Didn’t ice it or powdered sugar it, and it was just great on its own. It was super moist and had a great texture. I found it a little bit oily but I think that’s probably what made it so good…
    I currently have the white cake & Sprite version in the IP., expecting similarly amazing results!

  10. Does the cake need to be covered in the Instant Pot? Several people asked but there was never a response.
