Instant Pot Beer Bread 2Even if you don’t drink beer (me) you will love this Instant Pot beer bread recipe. I had always made it in the oven but this year I made this popular pressure cooker bread in my favorite “fancy” machine and it was one less thing I had to keep an eye on + I didn’t have to heat up my whole house to bake it. Win! One of the best side dish / appetizer Instant Pot recipes we have here!

If you’ve never had beer bread it is a dense bread that is perfect paired with a variety of dips. It’s seriously the best appetizer during the holidays. Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas are not the same without serving the best beer bread recipe.

  • Now you can make Instant Pot beer bread when your oven is full!

Just cut it up into small chunks. Just big enough to smother it with our pressure cooker fonduebeer cheese dip recipe or another one of the best hot dip recipes.

Pressure Cooker Cheese Fondue 3

You know what’s great other than it is so yummy, there are only 3 ingredients for this basic beer bread!! Adding cheese and chiles makes it a total of 5 but seriously that is so easy. I always have what I need on hand too so it is a quick pressure cooker appetizer I can throw together.

  • I like Instant Pot beer bread because it doesn’t require time to rise or the need for dry yeast.

The self rising flour is all you need and it works great to rise just enough. Remember that beer bread is not really fluffy….but perfect for dipping!

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Measure out 3 cups flour, make sure you spoon your flour into measuring cup instead of scooping up.
  • In a bowl pour your bottle or can of beer in with your flour and mix gently allowing it to stay lumpy.
  • Pour in your melted butter and any other add ins and gently fold in.
  • Spray your 6" bundt pan with non stick spray and pour beer bread mixture in it.
  • Cover with a paper towel and then tinfoil.
  • Pour 2 c water into your Instant Pot or pressure cooker and put a trivet inside.
  • Lower your bundt pan on to your trivet and close your lid, and close steam valve.
  • Set to pressure, high, for 65 minutes.
  • Allow steam to naturally release.
  • Uncover and put on cooling rack. It will still look a bit sticky but will continue to cook as it cools so don't worry.
  • Once cool loosen edges and slowly flip on to plate or cutting board. If serving with dip or cheese fondue (recommended), flip over on to a cutting board and cut into small bite size pieces and serve on a tray with a variety of dips!

Any recommendations on what to use if you don’t have a bundt pan small enough to fit in the Instant POP?

I use a 7" spring form cake pan with parchment paper bottom . Far easier to get out of the pan than a bunt pan.

If it fits in your IP then it should be fine, will just be a bit flatter since the pan is larger.
