The first step to making this flavourful cake was to separate the egg.

Then I used an electric hand mixer to beat the white until it formed soft peaks.

After setting aside the egg white I dumped some granulated sugar and margarine into a large mixing bowl.  

I beat them together using an electric hand mixer before adding in the egg yolk and some orange juice.

Once the batter was creamy I was ready to move to the next step.

I measured in some Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 Gluten Free Baking flour that I had sifted and spooned into the measuring cup.  This was to keep it light and fluffy.

Next I measured in meringue powder, baking powder, salt, almond milk and orange zest.

I used the electric hand mixer again to beat the ingredients until they were well combined.

Then I scraped the egg white, that I had prepared earlier, into the mixing bowl.

I folded it into the batter using a rubber spatula.

Then I greased and floured an Instant Pot cake pan.

I carefully scraped the cake batter into the pan.

Next I covered the cake pan with tinfoil.

I added 1 1/2 cups of water to my Instant Pot and placed the trivet inside.  I carefully set the cake pan on the trivet.

Then I placed the lid on the Instant Pot, turned the steam release handle to the sealing position and set the Instant Pot to Pressure Cook High for 50 minutes.

Once the Instant Pot was done cooking, I allowed it to do a Natural Release for 20 minutes before turning the steam release handle to the venting position.

Once the lid was off the Pot, I carefully lifted out the cake pan and immediately removed the tinfoil.

I allowed the cake to cool in the pan for about 10 minutes before inverting it onto a rack to finish cooling.

Once cooled I flipped it again onto a serving plate.

I used a tub of Betty Crocker Vanilla Frosting to ice the cake.

Then I added some more orange zest to the top.

The final decoration was slices of orange to garnish the edges.  

Instant Pot Orange Cake is an easy dessert recipe that is not only pleasing to the eye but very pleasing to the taste buds as well!
