Steamed Bread Pudding in the Instant Pot

TSteamed Bread Puddinghis is already such a favorite.  My husband is now convinced that he loves the Instant Pot!  I made one batch of this tonight and then had to make a second because I had none left to share with neighbors!

Ingredients:

  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 1 c Goya Coconut milk
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 3 eggs, beaten
  • 4 c cubed stale bread
  • ½ c cranraisins
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp vanilla

Optional ingredients can be:

  • Coconut flakes
  • Macadamia nuts or other nuts such as walnuts or pecans Apple ½ of a fresh apple minced

 Instructions:

  • Put 2 cups of water in the Instant Pot stainless steel inner pot.  Add the steam rack.
  • Use a casserole small enough to fit into the Instant Pot, but large enough to hold the bread and liquids.  I use a casserole dish that is sloped up to 8 inches in diameter and 3 inches high.
  • Cut bread in cubes.  I like to use my homemade challah but any sweet or white bread will do.
  • Mix the rest of the ingredients in a bowl to combine.  Put in the cubed bread crumbs. Mix well.
  • Cover with wax paper and secure (I use silicone rubber bands that can withstand temperatures up to 600 degrees).
  •  Set Instant Pot to steam and adjust time to 15 minutes.  Let pressure drop of its own accord.
  • I usually wait an additional 15 minutes before removing the lid.  Remove the casserole dish carefully.  Remove the wax paper and whatever secured it.
  • At this point I like to put it under a low broiler flame for about 5-8 minutes just to brown the top.
