Marlene Colerico says:
My cake came out super moist as well. That is usually hard for me to do with gluten free baked goods. Delicious.
Eddie Luciano says:
My cake came out super moist, not dense like some other pressure cooker cakes that I've tried. I don't cook with almond flour often because it can be cost prohibitive, but it's a must for this recipe. I also added a full cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips. Very good!
Nathalie D says:
Instead of omitting chocolate chips, I used sugar free dark chocolate morsels. This was the first cake I have ever made using my pressure cooker and you've made a believer out of me! I also chose not to add any frosting, the cake was sweet and delicious without it.
