Have you made Instant Pot bread pudding yet??!! It was so good!! We had it for dessert but it would be a great brunch menu item or a treat for breakfast too. It’s definitely one of our favorite Instant Pot recipes here on The Typical Mom blog. (originally published 1/19, affiliate links present)

If you’ve never “baked” in your pressure cooker it is really quite easy. We have made our famous raisin bread pudding in the oven over the years, especially during the holidays. Now it was time to see if there was a way to make it pretty in this multicooker too. I was curious to see.

Ninja Foodi Bread Pudding

You can use any brand you might have at home to get this done. I love easy Ninja Foodi meals and desserts but do have an IP and crockpot express as well. They all are electric and have the high pressure function so use what you have.

Let’s start with a few basic tips:

For reference, this is the pressure cooker I have and use for all recipe creations.

Why would you bother making it this way anyway right?? Well let me tell you why it has been a great method for us from time to time and may be an option for y’all too.

  • Because it makes just enough for the 5 of us…and not too many leftovers so I don’t get myself into trouble. 😉
  • When it’s summertime I do NOT turn on the oven when it’s hot outside and I’m paying for my air conditioner to be on.
  • It makes baked goods super moist!
  • It frees up your oven for other items, perfect if you need lots of brunch menu items and they won’t all fit in your oven at the same time.

This is what I used…..

I will start by saying that I have made a lot of different bread pudding recipes and for each one I’ve used day old French bread…I didn’t do that this time. Instead since I was making raisin bread pudding I used a loaf of raisin bread and it worked out incredibly well!

Bread Pudding Recipes

I have made this in the oven too with a fruit kick to it. You should try them all and see which you like best. If you don’t want to heat up your whole house though using your pot is a great idea.

Here’s what I did…..

Bread Pudding in Instant Pot

You will want a small so cute bundt pan to make this. I think this works a lot better than a round springform pan because it bakes more evenly. Otherwise the middle will be slightly underdone by the time the outside is a bit too dry. Just get one of these.

  • 7″ bundt pan – this is my FAVORITE one, seen above
    • I’ve tried others and believe me it’s on my list of the best Instant Pot accessories to grab
    • use a bit of cooking spray inside so it doesn’t stick though the melted butter will help already
  • Raisin bread cubes – leave it on the counter so it’s kinda’ “day old” texture (on the dry side)
  • Eggs
  • Whipping and/or heavy cream
  • Butter
  • Vanilla
  • Cinnamon
  • Apple sauce – Seriously this pressure cooker applesauce (made without the oats) is the BEST because you can make it chunkier which makes this bread pudding so good (then eat the rest for snacks)
  • Maple syrup – real maple syrup is so much better
  • Vanilla frosting – or cream cheese frosting, if you want to drizzle some on top

I mean you don’t really need any more sweetness on top but it is awfully good. A bowl of fresh fruit is a great addition to this at the beginning of the day.

Dairy Free Instant Pot Bread Pudding

You can make this with coconut milk if need be. It won’t be quite as creamy and may not firm up quite as much because that has less fat but will work.

I use my pressure cooker bundt pan pretty often so you’ll get a lot of use out of it too once you grab one, it makes it really pretty too when it’s done. Always allow it to cool quite a bit and pull away from the edges before gently flipping it over with a plate on top and let it slide out.

  • If you are too anxious to eat it right away you can but I recommend at least allowing it to sit for 10 minutes or so with the foil taken off so it can solidify and not fall apart when you take it out.

NO need for spraying the inside of this pan either because it is so well made with non stick coating that you’ll have no issues…that’s why I recommend this particular one.

Feel free to make your own frosting to drizzle on top with powdered sugar and water but I do it the busy mom way where I just warm up some vanilla frosting and pour on top…or you can omit.

Bread Pudding Pressure Cooker

You can jump to recipe below and print it out if you like too. Get out the bundt pan and aluminum foil you’ll need to get this all set up. A bowl is handy to whisk all the liquids together.

  • Cut bread into cubes and melt your butter. Pour butter into mini bundt pan.
  • Sprinkle bread pieces into the pan on top of the butter.
  • In a bowl whisk together in a bowl your eggs, syrup, whipping cream, apple sauce, cinnamon and vanilla extract and pour this on top of your bread.
  • Cover pan with foil tightly.
  • Pour 1 1/2 cups of water into your Instant Pot inner liner and lower a trivet down in the middle. Place bundt on top of that.
  • Close your lid and steam valve and set to high pressure cook for 20 minutes. Do a natural release until all steam is released. (do not quick release or it won’t set) This will take 20 – 30 minutes
  • Remove bundt pan and take foil off.
  • Put pan on a cooling rack and allow to completely cool so egg can continue to cook and solidify inside the bundt pan.

When it is cooled carefully flip pan over on to a plate and melt frosting or serve with ice cream.

You only use 4 slices of bread? Just wanted to make sure before I make it.

Do you let the pressure drop naturally or manually release it?
