Instant Pot Monkey Bread Recipe

The instant pot is my new favorite thing! That’s why I asked one of my favorite bloggers, Jen from Pink When, to come over and share her delicious Instant Pot Monkey Bread Recipe with all of us!

Hello Princess Pinky Girl followers. My name is (also) Jen! I blog over on PinkWhen.com, and I am going to be a new contributor over here at Princess Pinky Girl with my friend Jenn Fishkind.

I am beyond excited to share some of my favorite recipes, and today I am going to be sharing this mouthwatering Instant Pot monkey bread recipe.

This is so easy and so delicious that it disappears in a FLASH!

instructions, please see the recipe card at the end

stuff in the blurb! 

Lazy Saturday mornings are my favorites, followed closely by long afternoon naps. There is no mad dash to get out of the door for work or school and we can lounge around and munch on our favorite snacks.

This is also the perfect time for me to break out and make my favorite Monkey Bread Recipe.

Have you jumped on the Instant pot bandwagon yet? I jumped in both feet first and have been nothing but happy with it. If you are looking for a kitchen gadget to make life a little easier, you are going to love this baby.

Why do I love using my Instant Pot so much? Not only is it easy to use, but you can convert so many recipes that would normally take hours into about one fourth of the time. It’s a time saver, but you don’t have to sacrifice any of the flavor from cooking all day. They really are amazing, and if you don’t have one, I would highly recommend looking into it!

How to make Instant Pot Monkey Bread Recipe

What do you need to make the Instant Pot monkey bread recipe?

First, you need a smaller than normal bundt cake pan. I picked up a 6 cup bundt pan just for using with my Instant pot.

This easy Instant Pot Monkey Bread recipe is one of our favorite lazy day snacks and a perfect recipe if you are new to pressure cooking.

Instant Pot Monkey Bread ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 packages of biscuit dough (one butter, one regular flavor cut into small pieces)
  • 1 Tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 Tbsp powdered sugar
  • 1 large ziplock bag
  • 1 1/2 cups of water
  • foil

Instant Pot Monkey Bread instructions:

To get started, add the 1 1/2 cup of water to the Instant pot and add the trivet that came with your pressure cooker.

Bread and Instant Pot

Add the white sugar, cinnamon, and biscuit dough to the ziplock bag and then shake well until everything is coated.

Place a long strip of foil that is rolled into the Instant pot over the trivet with the sides coming up to the top.

Place the mixture into your bundt pan, and then place the bundt pan over the foil on the trivet.

Fold the foil strips over so that they don’t get caught in the grooves when you attach the lid. (We will be using the foil strip as makeshift handles when we remove the bundt pan from the pot after cooking.)

A tray of food

Place the lid and turn until locked. Set the manual mode for 20 minutes and allow your bread to cook.

Once the time has finished, do a quick release and carefully remove the monkey bread from the Instant Pot. (Be careful as your bundt pan will still be hot.)

Over medium heat melt the butter, vanilla, and brown sugar. Place the monkey bread on a plate, and then drizzle the top with the butter and brown sugar.

    1. My question, too. Did you mean combine butter, vanilla and powdered sugar instead of brown sugar to pour over the monkey bread?
