The secret to making bread in the instant pot

The yogurt button! It’s a function on your instant pot that you might not be sure how to use. In addition to great instant pot yogurt recipes, use it to make some of these fantastic breads. But don't worry if your instant pot doesn't have the yogurt button, several of these recipes will be made through plain old pressure cooking.

Whole wheat crunchy bread

Soft and chewy on the inside with a crispy crust on the outside, this vegan whole wheat instant pot bread recipe has all the right textures for the perfect bread. Use flax seeds and sunflower seeds to pack extra nutrition and parchment paper so you don’t need to do any dishes. (via Tidbits Marci)

Savory, gluten-free white bread

If you’re craving a more traditional, typical bread, then this tried and tested white bread recipe for the instant pot will be perfect for you. The original recipe uses regular flour, but you can make slight modifications using gluten-free flour and a little more baking soda. I bet you won’t be able to tell the difference between this instant pot gluten-free bread and the regular flour version. (via Hi Pressure Cooking)

No knead parmesan bread

Speaking of savory breads, this one's flavored with parmesan, oregano, and thyme. But really, you are free to season it however you like as long as you use four simple base ingredients for your bread: flour, bread, yeast, and warm water. (via What's Cookin' Chicago)

Rosemary & sea salt bread

If you love the complementary bread served at Italian restaurants as much as I do, then you’re going to want to try this recipe, inspired by the kind served at Macaroni Grill, flavored with rosemary and sea salt. (via Delish Knowledge)

Sourdough bread

Yogurt is what gives this recipe that nice sourdough flavor. This bread works great for sandwiches, toast, and even croutons. Feel free to add garlic or herbs to give the dough some extra flavor. (via Living Sweet Moments)

Apple bread with salted caramel icing

This recipe is perfect for the fall season or Thanksgiving. The aroma of apples, vanilla, and cinnamon won’t be as tortuous to wait for since your bread won’t take long to cook in your instant pot. (via Adventures of a Nurse)

Banana bread

This banana bread in pressure cooker recipe can be eaten for breakfast or as a dessert. You won’t need to add much sugar with the natural sweetness from your ripe bananas. (via That's What Che Said)

Cinnamon walnut sweet potato bread

If you want a paleo- and vegan-friendly bread, then this recipe, which is not overly sweet, would be right up your alley. Use almond flour, coconut flour, and tapioca flour as the base, along with almond milk and coconut oil to keep it healthy. (via Nurture My Gut)

Chocolate chip zucchini bread

Here’s another healthy, lower carb recipe to try. This sweeter bread is actually a cross between zucchini and banana bread. (via 365 Days of Crockpot)

Bonus! Bread pudding

Not technically a bread, but who's complaining? This rich, creamy dessert is perfect during the holidays. (via Simply Happy Foodie)

    Is it possible to make biscuits in the IP instead of using the oven? I've been looking all over trying to find anything so now I'm reaching out to find out.


  2. Jean says

    When making the bread do I leave the insert pan in the instant pot or do I remove it


    • Sylvia Wu says

      Hi Jean, you can leave the insert pan inside, but have the bread sit on parchment paper. Thanks for stopping by!

    I prefer traditional loaf shaped bread. My husband I’d a traditionalist?. Any suggestions what loaf pan will work and is good option on 6 qt duo?

      Hi Cindi,

      Nice, there's something satisfying about bread in loaf form :). Here's a pan that others seem to be using (affiliate link): https://amzn.to/2q2sJYr. Hope this helps and thanks for stopping by!

    Where can I get your bread cookbook?
    I just revived my Instant Pot reipes?

    I really LOVE using your wonderful Pot!
    Soooo easy to use! But I do always have trouble getting the lid on..


    • Sylvia Wu says

      Hi Bonnie,

      Glad you're enjoying the instant pot! Unfortunately, I do not have a bread cookbook, but you might be able to find some great instant pot recipe cookbooks on Amazon that you can access for free with a Kindle membership.

      I agree, it does take a while to get used to getting the lid on, but use it enough and you will 🙂



    • Paula says

      Bonnie Fitzpatrick-Moore, I too had trouble getting the lid on. Make sure the vent is in the back & the arrows that say 'open, close' is in the front where the buttons are. Once you do that you'll never had trouble agan with your lid. Good Luck!
