I’ve been trying to find a new use for the green silicone pan I make the Starbucks copycat Easy Instant Pot Sous Vide Eggs and this is it! It took me a few tries to get the timing right but these are so quick and easy.
I sprayed the 7 sections of my silicone pan with olive oil cooking spray.
I used a Ghirardelli Triple Fudge Brownie mix. Instead of 1/4 cup water, 1/4 cup oil and 1 egg, I used 1/4 cup water, 1/8 cup oil, 1 egg, and one 4 oz container of organic applesauce I mixed these ingredients together with a wooden spoon and poured the mixture into each of the 7 sections, almost to the very top. It did not hold quite all of the mixture – oh, well. (You could also save this batter and make a couple more brownies in the pan AFTER you finish the first 7)
I put 1 cup of water into the bottom of the Instant Pot liner and then put the trivet in there.
I carefully placed the filled silicone pan on the trivet and put the lid on with it sealed.
I set the Instant Pot for Manual 20 minutes with a 10 minute NPR.
I carefully pulled the silicone pan up out of the Instant Pot and put a plate upside-down on the top and then flipped it over. I gave each section of the silicone pan a little squeeze and wiggle and the brownies came out perfectly.
Here’s a funny photo of one of the first times I tried to Instant Pot a box of Ghirardelli brownies – gooey but good, ha! (They ate every bite) It took a couple more tries to get it just right – so worth it.
