Pressure Cooker Low Carb Cake with Raspberry Buttercream {Grain-Free, Gluten-Free, Paleo & Primal}

Pressure Cooker Low Carb Cake with Raspberry Buttercream {Grain-Free, Gluten-Free, Paleo & Primal}Yes, you read that right, it wasn’t a mistake. You can, indeed, make a cake in your pressure cooker! And not just any cake, a LOW CARB CAKE, that’s grain/gluten-free and paleo/primal friendly. My Pressure Cooker Low Carb Cake with Raspberry Buttercream will quickly become your go-to, quick and delicious cake recipe.

Can I be honest with you for just a minute??

See I’m good at lots of things, but baking and cake decorating is totes outside of my comfort zone. I feel totally inadequate and struggle with making sweet stuff look beautiful.

Sweet food is a artist medium vastly different from savory foods.

But for you, I created this recipe anyway.

Cause it’s Valentine’s Day Season and I want to give you a little piece of my heart too.

Pressure Cooker Low Carb Cake with Raspberry Buttercream {Grain-Free, Gluten-Free, Paleo & Primal}

I tried my hardest to make this Pressure Cooker Low Carb Cake with Raspberry Buttercream Frosting look pretty and I think I did pretty good.

Thank goodness for the rustic-frosting trend happening right now.

The cake recipe is adapted from my Classic Grain Free Birthday Cake that can be found in my cookbook Without Grain (which I must admit to be the 100% prefect grain-free cake #nailedit). Tweaking the volumes and ingredients to be Pressure Cooker friendly and low in carbs.

Of course to make the magic happen, you’re going to need a Pressure Cooker. If you are looking for a easy to use and budget friendly electric pressure cooker, I recommend THIS one >> GoWise USA 8 Quart, 8 in 1 Multi-Cooker (the 6 quart is fab too, but trust me the bigger model is definitely better, I have both and speak from experience)

GoWise USA Electric Pressure Cookers

I love my pressure cookers to the moon & back, I use them several times a week. (P.S. I’ve been a pressure cooking fool for over 20 years now, I’m not a newbie. The new electric must-cooker models are safe and easy to use.)

If you are wondering why I don’t use/recommend the instant pot brand – I have tried one in my kitchen. Head to head against my GoWise USA 8 in 1 Multi-Cooker, not only was the instant pot more expensive, it has longer heat up & depressurization times. The instant pot also has less features.

In addition to having a pressure cooker or multi-cooker, you’re also going to need 2 – 6 cake pans, THESE are the exact pans that I use.  And at least 1 rack that fits into your pressure cooker,  it should have come with one.

There aren’t any fancy cake making instructions for pressure cooking a cake. It’s straightforward and simple. I’ve made several cakes, even boxed varieties with success.  Cake batter divided into 2 – 6 cake pans, covered in foil, stacked, 1 cup of water, 25 minutes pressure, naturally depressurize.

That’s it.

Now you know the secret.

You are welcome.

Likewise with the Raspberry Buttercream, it’s a traditional buttercream (swapping THIS low carb powdered sweetener for powdered sugar) and adding sifted raspberry powder.

Perhaps, this recipe is starting to sound easier already??

Servings: 8 servings

Ingredients

Supplies + Extras

For the Low Carb Cake

For the Raspberry Buttercream

  • 1/2 cup Butter (or ghee) softened, not melted
  • 2 tablespoons Red Raspberry Powder sifted
  • 2 to 3 cups Powdered Swerve
  • 2 tablespoons Heavy Cream or coconut cream

Instructions

  • Lightly coat cake pans with avocado oil spray.
  • To make the Low Carb Cake: Beat eggs, add cream, water, vanilla and swerve. Then add the remaining ingredients. Blend well. Divide batter between 2 prepared pans. Cover each pan with aluminum foil.
  • Place 1 cup of water in your pressure cooker and your rack. Carefully stack cake pans in your pressure cooker. If you pans do not have a lip making stacking possible, use broken bamboo skewers laid across the bottom pan to support the top pan.
  • Cook your cakes under high/standard pressure for 25 minutes. Allow to naturally depressurize.
  • Remove cakes from your pressure cooker and invert on a cooling rack (removing pans) and allow to cool completely before frosting.
  • For the Raspberry Buttercream: Using a stand or hand mixer, beat softened butter on high speed until light and fluffy (about 3 minutes) Add powdered swerve, 1/2 a cup at time, until completely incorporated. Add in raspberry powder and heavy cream.
  • Use roughly 1/3 of the frosting in-between the cake layers, then the rest to frost/decorate.

Notes

Using a low-carb powdered sugar substitute will produce a slightly grainer buttercream that when using regular powdered sugar.
