Instant Pot Carrot Cake

Carrot cake is fluffy and scrumptious and you can make it easily on your Instant Pot!

The bits of carrots in it make the taste really special, something else than the classic (but also good!) cheesecake or chocolate cake. Perfect for your sweet cravings.

You can use a glaze of cream cheese and decorate with baby carrot, pecan nuts and rosemary.

If you are really into cream cheese, try this Instant Pot Cream Cheese Cinnamon Rolls.
