Guys, today I have for you a simple Instant Pot baked apples recipe. This recipe is very easy and more importantly, it’s quick! Would you believe they only need 3 minutes to cook in your electric pressure cooker? Isn’t it great?

Before I was going to make these Instant Pot baked apples I knew I wanted to add some extras that would make them a bit different from the classic version. So I included hazelnuts, dates and ladyfingers in the stuffing!

6 Apples

⅓ cup Raisins

⅓ cup Hazelnuts , chopped

⅓ cup Dates , chopped

1 tbsp Cinnamon

2 tbsp Brown Sugar

⅓ cup Ladyfingers / Graham Crackers (optional)

1 stick Unsalted Butter

⅓ cup Water


Rinse the apples and cut out holes in each one of them. I use a knife and a melon baller.

In a bowl mix together raisins, chopped hazelnuts, chopped dates, cinnamon, brown sugar, half of the butter and crushed ladyfingers/cookies/Graham crackers (these are completely optional).

Stuff each apple with the cinnamon stuffing. Put a tiny piece of butter on top of each apple and place them in your Instant Pot.

Pour water inside and throw the rest of the butter in. If you have some leftover filling, add 2-3 teaspoon in as well (optional).

Cover with the lid and lock. Turn the steam release (venting knob) to “sealed” position.

Press “Manual” and set the timer to 3 minutes. Press the “Pressure” button and change the pressure to low.

When the cooking cycle is finished, let the pressure release naturally to get extra tender apples. You can also quick release the pressure which will stop overcooking your apples.

Recipe Notes

This recipe was made in a 6-quart/6-liter Instant Pot.

You can fit 6-8 small-medium apples in a 6-quart/6-liter Instant Pot.

The stuffing/filling ingredients can be changed/increased/omitted depending on your taste.

The cooking time does not include the extra time needed to pressurize the pot as well as naturally release the steam (count with extra 6-8 minutes).

This recipe works best with small or medium apples.

The texture of apples depends on their sweetness – the sweeter the apples the mushier they turn. Also if you add extra sugar in your liquid, this can cause that the apples turn harder but might keep their shape better.
