A moist spice bundt cake with pecans, banana, crushed pineapple and cream cheese frosting!


  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans (plus more to decorate top of cake)
  • 1 2/3 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3/4 cup mashed banana
  • 1/3 cup crushed pineapple (do not drain)
  • 6 Tbsp canola or vegetable oil
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract, divided
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 Tbsp milk


  1. Toast the pecans by baking on a cookie sheet in a 350 degree oven for 8 minutes. Set aside.
  2. In a mixing bowl whisk together the flour, white sugar, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.
  3. Stir in the eggs, banana, pineapple, oil and 1 tsp of the vanilla until moistened.
  4. Spray a 7 inch bundt cake pan with non-stick cooking spray. Add the pecans into the bottom of the pan. Scrape the batter into the pan. Cover the pan with foil.
  5. Pour 1 ½ cups of water into Instant Pot. Place the cake pan on a trivet. Lower the trivet with the pan on top into the Instant Pot.
  6. Cover Instant Pot and secure the lid. Make sure valve is set to sealing. Set the manual/pressure cook button to 45 minutes. When time is up release the pressure by moving valve to venting. Remove the lid.
  7. Move the pan out of the Instant Pot, remove the foil. It make look moist and not all the way cooked through but it is. Place a plate on top of the pan and then invert to flip the pan onto the plate. Let it cool completely before frosting the cake.
  8. Make the frosting by adding cream cheese, 1 tsp of vanilla, powdered sugar and 1 Tbsp of the milk to a mixing bowl. Use a hand mixer to mix until well blended. Add in the remaining tablespoon of milk 1 teaspoon at a time mixing until smooth.
  9. Evenly drizzle the frosting over your bundt cake. Continuously turn the plate as you pour the frosting to coat evenly. Gently tap and rock plate to encourage the frosting to drip down the bundt cake. Decorate with extra pecans.
  10. Slice and serve!
