  1. I have a 3 quart instant pot and I have to cook for me and my wife. How can I change the serving size from 8 to 2?

    1. You can change the serving size by changing the number from 8 to 2 and the ingredients will turn according to 2 servings in the recipe. I hope it helps!

  2. This recipe is perfect. One problem if that I don’t have a springform pan, then what is the substitution of a spring form pan? Thanks!
