  • Instant Pot or Pressure Cooker
  • Instant Pot Egg Mold


  • 2 cups pancake mix
  • 1 1/3 cups water
  • ½ cup diced strawberries
  • ½ cup chocolate chips
  • ½ cup Whipped cream optional
  • ¼ cup Powdered sugar optional
  • ½ cup Maple syrup optional


  • Mix together your pancake mix and water.
  • Spray your Instant Pot egg molds with cooking spray. Make sure that every side is covered in spray.
  • Pour in your pancake mix completely to the top to 7 molds for your regular pancake popper. Pour in your pancake mix half way in 7 molds, chocolate chips (about 5 chips – or more if you’d like!), and a few diced strawberries to the remaining 7 molds. For the chocolate chip, and strawberry poppers, add more pancake mix to reach the top of the mold.
  • Cover each mold with aluminum foil (foil prevents moisture seeping into the molds).
  • Pour 1 cup of water into your Instant Pot. *Note – you can use more than one mold. Just place them one on top of each other on the trivet. If you do one at a time, make sure there is 1 cup of water in the Instant Pot before cooking a second, third, etc. time.
  • Place the trivet in your Instant Pot. Carefully place your egg molds filled with your pancake mix on the trivet within the Instant Pot.
  • Close and seal the valve to the Instant Pot.
  • Cook for 7 minutes on High Pressure.
  • Once the time is up on the Instant Pot, allow it to release naturally.
  • Once it has released, open the Instant Pot. With a towel or hot pads, carefully remove the trivet from the Instant Pot. Place each mold on a cooling rack for about 10 minutes.
  • Once they have cooled, you can serve with syrup – lots of syrup! You can lightly sprinkle powdered sugar on the chocolate chip pancake poppers, or whipped cream on the strawberry poppers! Enjoy!


You can add any type of toppings you want on top of these.   Or add in anything you want to the batter.
