Arlene’s Instant Pot Bread Pudding

Arlene's Instant Pot Bread Pudding

You will need a 5 cup Bowl to fit into your pressure cooker (I use a Stainless steel) for “Pot in pot” cooking method.

6 slices of cinnamon/raisin bread (dried out) Cut up

In mixing bowl combine until well mixed for custard:
3 large eggs
3 cups of milk
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 to 3/4 cup sugar…to your taste
Cinnamon to your taste. Or nutmeg. Or raisins

Butter bowl. Put bread pieces into bowl.
Pour custard over bread pieces. Let stand 15 minutes to let bread absorb egg mixture.
Dot with 1 tbsp butter.
Cover bowl tightly with alum foil that has been buttered.

Put trivet/steaming rack into the inner pot, add 2 cups water.
If you don’t have a suitable “pot lifter”, make a “sling” of alum foil to make it easy to lift the hot bowl out the the PC.
Lower bowl into PC pot.
Lock lid. For the Instant Pot… I used manual setting on HI and set for 25 minutes. I used a natural release for 15 minutes then a quick release to release the balance of the pressure.

Lift out of PC Pot. There might be some water on top of the foil. Just soak that up with a towel and puncture a few holes in foil while cooling. We like our pudding cold, so I would refrigerate. It would be heavenly warm.

This thickens as it cools.

    Do I need an additional pot when using the instapot?

    Made this twice. 2nd time added more sugar as it was too bland.
    Also made a caramel sauce to top it with!
    I used my Cuisinart PC and worked fine.

    I found this a little “wet” for my preference, next time I might try 2 c. milk and 2 eggs instead. Nevertheless, it is delicious and everybody loved it. I used 1/2 c. brown sugar, 1 tsp. cinnamon, and added 1/2 cup dried cherries. After it was baked I sprinkled the top with cinnamon sugar.

    Really tasty for breakfast, have made it twice with dried mixed fruit, chopped,and raisins. Used plain bread, extra cinnamon and larger quantity of suger, Jersey cow milk is rich so used no butter. Even non breakfast eaters in the house eat this.
