How to make it

  • Note: this recipe is for an electric pressure cooker and after making several baked goods I am finding out one only needs about 2 cups of water to create cake like textures, and more water for more pudding like textures.
  • Cream sugar and butter well.
  • Beat in vanilla and egg well
  • Beat in the mashed/puree bananas
  • Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt
  • Add the dry ingredients along with the buttermilk and blend mixture well.
  • Pour into a greased and floured 8 x 4 loaf pan.
  • Batter should be half full but never more than 2/3 full
  • Seal top of loaf pan with buttered foil
  • Place a wire rack in the bottom of the cooker pan
  • Add 2 cups water
  • Place the prepared loaf on the wire rack
  • Pressure cooker 30 minutes and let steam dissipate natural ( don't open exhaust )
  • Remove loaf pan from cooker with tongs
  • Place on a rack
  • Remove the foil
  • Let cool to warm and carefully remove from pan, placing upright on serving plate ( Loaf will feel very soft as does steamed cakes)
  • Glaze as desired
  • Slice when cool
  • Wrap well to store and as with banana breads, flavor improves with age.

    Thanks for the recipe! My first time "baking" in the instant pot. Turned out great. I used 1/2 cup of sugar, and folded in a grated zucchini. It was definitely sweet enough for my husband and I. My two year old will be taste-testing this in the morning. I'm sure she will love it.
