Instant Pot Banana Bread Recipe

This is hands down the best Instant Pot banana bread recipe on the Internet!  Before I invented this recipe, I’ve tried several popular Instant Pot banana breads recipes that I found online.  I was super disappointed – those breads looked good on the outside, but when I cut into them, their texture was like a dense wet brick!

 I was about to give up on the idea of baking bread in the Instant Pot, but then decided to try my regular tried-and-true banana bread recipe that I usually bake in the oven, but this time in the Instant Pot.  My “last try” turned out to be a success!

Recipe type: Instant Pot, Bread
Cuisine: American
Serves: 12 servings


1 ripe banana, mashed with a fork
1 egg
1 cup sugar
6 tbsp butter, softened
⅔ cup milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1½ cups flour
1 tbsp baking powder (preferably aluminum-free)
1 cup water (for pressure-cooking only, do not add it to the banana bread batter)


Grease a round baking dish that fits inside the Instant Pot with 1 tbsp of butter.
Whisk the egg with sugar in a bowl until light and fluffy. Add mashed banana, vanilla, milk and remaining 6 tbsp of butter and mix until combined.
Add the flour and baking powder and mix until combined.
Pour batter into greased round baking dish. Cover the dish with paper towel and then cover with aluminum foil on top of paper towel. (The paper towel will be absorbing the moisture from the steam).
Pour 1 cup of water in the Instant Pot and insert the trivet. Put the foil-covered baking dish with banana bread batter on the trivet inside the Instant Pot.
Close the lid of the Instant Pot and turn the valve to a Sealing position. Press the "Pressure Cook" or "Manual" button and set the time to 55 minutes on High pressure.
When the Instant Pot is done cooking, quick release (QR) the steam.
Open the lid and carefully remove the dish with banana bread from the Instant Pot using potholders or baking mittens (I just grab the handles of the trivet and lift it out together with the banana bread dish).
Remove the foil and paper towel cover and invert the banana bread onto a plate. Let the banana bread cool for 10 minutes, then slice and serve.
