I will be honest, I go to the store, shop and bring home bananas often. I tend to forget about them, they go brown and then banana bread or smoothies is what happens to them. Since I created this recipe, I countdown the days till I see those brown specks develop on the bananas.


Instant Pot Caramel Pecan Banana Bread


I love banana bread, whether it’s plain, chocolate chip varieties, blueberries, or even caramel and pecans. This recipe right here is probably my most favorite. The Instant Pot makes it super simple on my part, locks in the moisture, so you don’t end up with an overly dry bread in the end. I can’t tell you how many times that has happened with my oven banana bread recipes. One minute too long and it gets over dry. The Instant Pot seals up the moisture so it turns out great each time.

Patience is key to the perfect banana for baking. When you start seeing speckled spots resist the urge to start baking. Trust me, the wait is worth it in flavor. Try to wait till your banana is almost brown all over, this is a really ripe banana that will give you the perfect banana flavor to your bread.


Benefits to Ripe Bananas for Banana Bread


Allowing your bananas to really ripen has many benefits. You get a sweeter and bolder banana flavor in your baked goods. Also, you are able to mash the bananas easier for a more smooth texture in your batter.


How do I Ripen My Bananas Faster


Start out by grappling a paper bag. Place your bananas in the bag and loosely close it. To speed the process up even more place a tomato or apple in the bag as well. The ethylene will build in the paper bag which helps ripen your banana a lot quicker than sitting on your counter. Just check on the bananas each day to see where they are in terms of ripeness.


You can’t use plastic bags for this, it needs to be paper. Paper bags still allow oxygen to pass through, this is needed or you will just end up with rotten bananas.

    1. I cut the salt (to 1 tsp.) and vanilla (to 1 tbsp.) and used a 7″ springform pan. Still had lots of extra “dough” when I filled the pan to 1/4″ below the top. And it still fell. I would suggest filling only to 1/2″ below the top with same time…that should work. Taste is delicious!!

  1. Maybe you indicated that the IP should be 8 qt. and the springform pan larger than the 7″ I use in my 6 qt. pan. First, I cut the salt to 1 tsp…not tablespoons. Then I added 1 (not 4) tablespoons of vanilla. I had way too much of the “dough” mixture, so I filled my pan to 1/4″ from the top… When finished, the taste was marvelous, but it fell in the center…not done. Should I leave 1/2″ at the top of the pan??? Extend the pressure time???

  2. I made this in the instant pot duo, 6qt 7 in 1, used a 7″ springform pan and followed the directions to the letter, including the 5 minute npr. This was completely undercooked. Took another 45 minutes in the toaster oven to finish cooking. Lots of wasted effort in the instant pot. Could’ve done the entire process in a regular cake pan in the oven for about the same amount of time. Great flavor but I’ll not try this in the instant pot again.
