Easy Instant Pot Dessert Recipes

Think your Instant Pot is only good for hearty soups and stews? Think again. Keep the oven shut and make your favorite sweets on the countertop in your favorite multicooker.

Related To:

Instant Pot Monkey Bread

You'll never know this classic sweet bread came out of a multicooker instead of your oven. A couple of little tricks gives it that fresh-baked taste &mdash brown butter lends a nutty aroma and crunchy turbinado sugar melts into the dough and provides caramel-like flavor.

Instant Pot Vanilla Cheesecake

Yes, your Instant Pot ® can even take care of dessert. This creamy cheesecake comes together in a snap. Swap in 1 1/3 cups graham crackers or chocolate wafer cookie crumbs instead of using vanilla wafers for an easy variation.

Instant Pot Gooey Cinnamon Rolls

If you love the warm, soft and gooey center of a cinnamon roll best, then you have to make these rolls -- they are all center!

Instant Pot Caramel Apple-Pear Clafoutis

This Instant Pot® dessert brings out the best sweet, seasonal flavors in a fraction of time it would normally take.

Instant Pot Cookies-and-Cream Cheesecake

The most magical thing about this luscious cheesecake is its cooking time! If you are tired of your favorite cheesecakes hogging your oven for hours, this is the one for you. The cookie crust and bits of cookie throughout make it a cheesecake you won't soon forget.

Instant Pot Bread Pudding

Pressure cooking ups the creamy, custardy nature of this classic brunch staple. If you prefer a crispy crust for contrast, just pop the baking dish under the broiler with some sugar on top.

Instant Pot Confetti Birthday Cake

This 'set it and forget it' cake is perfect for the summer months when you don't want to turn the oven on. And if you forget it in the Instant Pot®, it won't burn!

Instant Pot Dulce de Leche

A super-fast way to make dulce de leche in a multi-cooker. And no stirring necessary.

Instant Pot Rice Pudding

A pressure cooker makes easy work of this creamy, comforting dessert. It's great both warm or cold, and since the flavors develop overnight, it tastes even better the next day.

Instant Pot Pumpkin Cheesecake

A food processor and an Instant Pot ® make quick work of this creamy, spice-laced dessert. The result is a perfectly creamy cheesecake.

Instant Pot Sticky Toffee Pudding

This is the perfect dessert to cook in the Instant Pot® - a sticky, rich pudding cake baked in an adorable, small bundt pan. Flavored with seasonal spices and dates, this will be your new go-to winter dessert. We used alternative flours for the best result with this steaming technique, and the happy side effect is that this dessert is also gluten-free.

Instant Pot Creme Brulee

Creme brulee made the old-fashioned way using the stove-top and oven seems like such a chore when you can make it more quickly and easily (but with equally delicious results!) in an Instant Pot®. No need to worry about curdled eggs here either because cooking on low pressure for just eight minutes yields a perfectly set custard every time.

Instant Pot Chocolate Lava Cakes

There is no shortage of Instant Pot® chocolate lava cake recipes out there, but this one is different because we used a mix of brown sugar and cornstarch in the batter instead of the often-used confectioner's sugar. It adds a touch of caramel flavor to the cakes that is missing because they are pressure-cooked rather than baked in the oven.

What Pressure Cooker/Slow Cooker Do You Use?

Most of the time I use my 6 quart oval Kitchenaid slow cooker.* I love this slow cooker (you can see me talking about it in a video here). It cooks low and evenly. I love the medium heat choice because most slow cookers that I’ve seen only have the option of cooking on low or high. If you’re going to buy just one slow cooker, this is the one that I recommend.

For pressure cooking I use my 6 quart Instant Pot Duo 60 7 in 1*. I love this Instant Pot because it has the yogurt making function which I use almost weekly. It has two pressure settings (high and low), and there are also little slots in the handles so that you can rest the lid there instead of putting it down on your counter-top.
