While 2020 has had its challenges, one of the plusses we stumbled over in our kitchens during safer at home stays is Instant Pot® desserts. The same appliance that takes the time and effort out of prepping dinner entrees, also makes a mean dessert! Just look at all the gooey goodness that a little butter, sugar and Instant Pot magic can concoct!
Sweet Breads and Covered Fruit
From the Food Network you’ll find 13 recipes for things like Instant Pot Monkey Bread where brown butter lends a nutty aroma and crunchy turbinado sugar melts into the dough and provides caramel-like flavor to a different kind of sweet treat, Bread Pudding. And if you’re the adventurous type, Caramel Apple-Pear Clafoutis. What’s that, you may ask?
Clafoutis is a delicious baked French dessert of fruit, traditionally black cherries but in the fall apples and pears. The fruit is covered with a thick flan-like batter, dusted with powdered sugar and served warm, often with cream or in this case crème fraiche! (A version of sour cream with a higher fat content, which makes it good for cooking and eating!)
Autumnal Entries for Instant Pot Desserts
It doesn’t have to be winter for us to enjoy a little pumpkin pie, but the holidays help us gravitate toward this recipe from The Kitchn for an Instant Pot version.
