How to ripen bananas quickly for Banana Bread
If you’re eager to make this pressure cooker banana bread but your bunch of bananas isn’t ripe enough, don’t worry about it! Simply preheat your oven to 300 degrees Fahrenheit and pop the bananas in the oven on a lined baking sheet until the peels turn brown. When you pull them out, they’ll be nice and soft and perfect for making banana bread!
How to make Instant Pot Banana Bread
In a medium sized bowl, add all the ingredients up to the banana. With a wire whisk, stir to combine. In a separate, larger bowl, add the remaining ingredients and whisk to combine. Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients and whisk once again.
Line the bottom of a small round cake pan with parchment paper and coat the sides evenly with oil. Pour the batter into the pan. Cover the pan with foil, crimping the edges to make sure everything is sealed.
Place a trivet in your instant pot and pour a cup of water into the pot as well. Place the covered pan into the instant pot and set to sealing. Cook on manual high pressure until it’s done, then let the steam release naturally.
Place the bread on a cooling rack until it’s completely cool. Slice and DEVOUR!
Top Tips for making Banana Bread Instant Pot
- Make sure the tinfoil is tight on top of the cake pan, or else the banana bread will turn out soggy! I like to crimp the edges of the foil with my fingers to make sure it’s tight enough.
- You’ll know the banana bread is done when the internal temperature reaches 200-205 degrees!
There are so many ways to get creative with this instant pot recipe! Feel free to swap out the flour for whole wheat flour or your favorite gluten free blend of flour if you desire! Another way to jazz it up a bit is to add some mix-ins! I recommend adding chopped walnuts, dried fruit such as raisins, or your favorite kind of chocolate chips!
How to freeze banana bread
Banana bread is SUCH a great grab and go recipe, and it also freezes really well! To freeze, I recommend slicing your bread into portion sized pieces, then wrapping them individually in plastic wrap. Toss all the wrapped slices in a zip lock freezer bag and you’re all set- simply thaw and enjoy as needed.
