If you are wondering what all the hype is about Instant Pots I will tell you I love mine and have had it for less than a year.

Some ask why I would make Instant Pot dessert recipes since it takes the same amount of time to “bake” as in the oven, and the reason why is especially if you live in HOT climates you don’t want to turn your oven on in the summer.
Where we lived in Ca. it would get to 110 degrees regularly in the summertime and I would NOT turn on my oven at all but still wanted to bake so this is a great way to do that!
- Instant Pot key lime pie
- Instant Pot monkey bread
- Pressure cooker chocolate lava cake
- Instant Pot samoa cheesecake
- Instant Pot caramel apple monkey bread
- Instant Pot chocolate mousse
- Instant Pot chocolate chip bread pudding
- Instant Pot tapioca pudding
Here are a few pressure cooker desserts that are sure to make you want more. My Instant Pot rice pudding is one of the most popular desserts on my blog and I have people say over and over again how amazing it is! It is warm and really creamy.
I have made a dairy free rice pudding as well for my husband using his almond milk and it turned out pretty good! So that is a good option if you’re lactose intolerant and still want dessert.
- Instant Pot creme brulee
- Instant Pot chocolate cheesecake
- Instant Pot chocolate lava cake
- Instant Pot better than sex chocolate lava cake
- Instant Pot dulce de leche cheesecake
- Instant Pot rice pudding
Here are a few that could be made for breakfast as well and my dump cake recipe can be made with any type of pie filling you desire. It is such a simple recipe with only 3 ingredients needed and topped with some ice cream it is just a little scoop of comfort food that you are sure to just love.
These pressure cooker recipes are great year round but really help me in the summer when it’s over 100 degrees here and the last thing I want to do is turn on my oven!

If you’re new to cooking in your Instant Pot don’t be intimidated. I was when I got mine and it stayed in the box for a few months after it came in the mail.
One day I just got it out and experimented with something I thought would be simple and made this Instant Pot spaghetti and it turned out great.
It’s now one of my most popular Instant Pot recipes and ever since I’ve just learned about how long noodles take, chicken, and gauge things from there. Try a few easy dishes and you will get the hang of it quickly….I promise!
