1 thought on “Instant Pot Yellow Cake

  1. This recipe seems to be missing a lot. Picture shows a 3 layer cake, but there is no information about that in the recipe. What size cake pan (tin) should be used? “Add milk to perfect consistency” does that mean I might need more or less milk? Where does it say to “strain” (sift?) the dry ingredients. I’ve never heard of anything ‘on’ room temperature.
