Instant Pot Banana Bread

Instant Pot Banana Bread, along with a cup of coffee, definitely makes your morning better! For today’s Banana Bread recipe, I confess that I didn’t work too hard. My Instant Pot and my kids were very helpful. I just gave directions.

I hate throwing away products, but my habit of buying everything I see on my way at our local farmers market makes this impossible. Fruits and vegetables spoil pretty quickly, and I don’t get to use them all. For this reason, I always think of different recipes to use fruits and vegetables before they rot. Usually, I chop the vegetables and send them portioned to the freezer – ready for soups, frittatas, or stews. While the fruits, in most cases, go for desserts, such as cobblers, crumbles, cakes, or jams.

Instant Pot Banana Bread Bananas are among my favorite fruits. Treats made with this tropical fruit are simply impossible to refuse. This Instant Pot Banana Bread is a real explosion of taste. It is extraordinarily appealing, fragrant, fluffy, and slightly moist. Furthermore, this recipe is delicious and undemanding to make without even turning on the oven. For a better taste, you can add nuts, dry berries, and/or chocolate chips. However, my favorite version of banana bread is the traditional one.

It is extraordinary! For this banana bread recipe, the bananas must be as ripe as possible. So if they have darkened, it is even better because that is when they’re the sweetest. In this case, you will need less sugar, and that is always a good thing.

Instant Pot Banana Bread Banana bread can be served both warm and chilled. I just adore to enjoy it with a cup of cold milk in the morning, but it goes very well with coffee too. I am convinced that this Instant Pot banana bread will please everyone, especially the little ones.

What is the cake setting on instant pot?

Instant Pots have various programs to help you cook more efficiently. Although, not all models have the same set of programs. So, do not worry in case your model does not include the cake setting. You can still easily make a cake in your Instant Pot using the manual button or pressure cook.

Accessories to make Instant Pot Banana Bread:

Instant Pot Banana Bread To make this Instant Pot banana bread, you will need some accessories that are usually provided with purchase. The first thing you will need is a Trivet that you will use to support a pan. But in time, I discovered that it is much easier to lift out the pan from Instant Pot, using a silicone sling instead of Trivet. This cheap accessory can be purchased separately but will make it much handier.

Another accessory that is indispensable for making Instant Pot banana bread is a 7″ springform pan. Here you also have an alternative. Instead of it, you can use 6 Cup Bundt Pan or any other pan that fits in your Instant Pot. When baking cakes, I prefer silicone molds as it is easier to remove than the cake from it, and you almost do not have to clean it up.

Once you have a fluffy texture mixture, whisk in 1 tsp baking soda and a pinch of salt. Now using a spatula, gradually incorporate 1 ⅓ cups of flour. Then pour ⅓ cup of milk and ¼ cup of oil. Mix gently to combine.
