Instant Pot Desserts!
That’s right, I’m talking about making desserts in an Instant Pot. Growing up, the only thing we ever used the pressure cooker for was to cook chicken. But now you can make almost any food imaginable in an Instant Pot. From main dishes to side dishes, you can find all types of recipes that can be made. But did you know that the possibilities don’t just stop at side dishes? You can make cakes, pies, and even cheesecakes. Don’t believe me? Check out these 15 Delicious Instant Pot Desserts You Have to Try and decide for yourself!
Ever since the Instant Pot appeared on the cooking scene, food preparation has never been the same. An Instant Pot is an all-in-one electric cooker with multi-functions. It is a pressure cooker, a slow cooker, a rice cooker, and a yogurt maker. The steam enables the food to cook faster even than the traditional stovetop and food cook in the oven. I’ve yet to hear a negative comment about this popular kitchen appliance. I mean, what’s not to love? This kitchen gadget is so amazingly versatile and insanely good!
