23 Instant Pot Desserts For People Who Want To Impress

Posted on Sep 19 2017 - 1:40pm by Susan Bewley

Have you ever made Instant Pot desserts? I will freely admit, while I use my pressure cooker quite a bit, I had never considered making desserts in mine. In all honesty, I didn’t even think it was possible, especially since most deserts I make on the stove or bake in the oven. When I found out that some of my friends actually made complicated desserts in their Instant Pot, I will freely admit, I was impressed! My immediate assumption though was it was likely more effort than it was worth. I mean, it couldn’t actually cut down the time of making these desserts…could it? To my surprise, I was totally wrong when I started looking at these recipes, seeing people cutting down the cooking time by half…or more!

After doing a bit of research on Pinterest and talking to some of my blogging friends, I was excited when I found so many Instant Pot dessert recipes that didn’t just look delicious, but seemed very easy to make!

Below I have included 25 of the best Instant Pot dessert recipes I have seen online. These recipes include everything from breads to amazing looking cheesecakes that will impress just about anyone during the holiday season.

    I never considered that an instant pot could do desserts. I’ve put one on my wish list for Christmas.

    The apple pudding cake looks scrumptious. Ironically, we picked apples this week so I could whip this up over the weekend.

    I don’t own a pressure cooker but if I did I would probably not even think about making desserts in them… that is until I saw this post. I’m impressed by all the different cheesecakes you can make.

    The vanilla rice pudding reminds me of what my Mom used to make but she would add raisins not jam.
