Ingredients

  • 3 medium size Banana, ripe more ripe, better it is
  • 1&1/2 cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon Powder or All spice powder
  • 1 tbsp Flax seed meal + 3 tbsp warm water
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 1/3 cup or 5&1/2tbsp Butter melted
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract

Optional Nuts - I have not used these. But these work well with this bread.

  • 2 tbsp walnuts or pecans chopped
  • 1 tbsp raisins

Quick Cinnamon Glaze Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup powdered or confectioner's SUGAR
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon powder
  • 1&1/2 tsp Milk

Instructions

Making Flax Egg

  • Take a small bowl. Add 1 tbsp Flax seed meal and 3 tbsp warm water to it. Mix it well and set aside till ready to use.

Grease the Pan and set aside.

    Preparing the Instant Pot for making Banana Bread in it.

    • Place the inner pot inside the IP. Plug it in. Pour 2 cups of water in the inner pot. It is ready for making cake/ bread in it.

    Mixing Dry Ingredients

    • Take a bowl. Add all purpose flour, cinnamon powder, baking soda, baking powder, and salt to it. Mix well. Set aside.

    Mixing Wet Ingredients

    • Take a large bowl and add bananas to it. Mash them fine with a fork.  Add sugar to the mashed bananas. Mix it till it dissolves in the banana. 
    • Now add melted butter, flax egg, and vanilla extract to the bananas. Mix it all well with the fork or spoon. 

    Preparing the Cake

    • Add dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Give it a quick mix till all the ingredients come together in a thick batter.
    • Transfer this batter to the prepared greased cake pan. Level it out with the spoon. Cover the cake pan with aluminum foil tightly around it. Place the cake pan over the IP trivet/stand. Gently hold it by its handles on the side and place it in the Inner Pot of the IP.
    • Close the Lid and set the floating valve to SEALING.  Press Cake Button and set it on Normal Cake Mode & High Pressure. Set the timer for 45 minutes. 
    • Important - If you do not have Cake Mode on your IP, then you can make it on Manual/Pressure Cook Mode on High/More setting for 50 minutes.
    • Once the timer goes off, follow NPR (Natural Pressure Release). As the safety valve drops down, open the lid. Take the trivet out with the cake pan holding by the handles. Carefully remove the aluminum foil, making sure that the condensation water on top of foil, does not drip inside the pan. 
    • You might feel that the bread is slightly damp. In that case, you may either dab it with a kitchen paper towel or do what I do. I normally put my damp cakes in the oven under high broiler for 3-5 minutes, till the cake/bread looks dry and pretty.
    • Let it sit in the pan for 10 minutes before taking it out carefully. Pour Cinnamon Glaze over the Banana Bread evenly. The Instant Pot Banana Bread is ready to be savored.

    QUICK CINNAMON GLAZE RECIPE

    • Take a small bowl. Add sugar and cinnamon powder to it and mix well with a small fork or whisk. Now add 1/2 tsp milk at a time and mix. Add more milk as needed till it is a thick runny consistency. I used about 1&1/2 tsp milk to make it a good consistency glaze.
