Instant Pot Bananas Foster

by | Jun 1, 2017

Is there any dessert better than Bananas Foster cascading over some vanilla ice cream? A monkey would tell you no, and so would I! This is seriously one of the EASIEST and TASTIEST things you can make in your Instant Pot (it used to take 2.5 hours in the crock pot for reference) and you are going to absolutely go BANANAS for it!

  • 4 good-sized bananas, not too ripe/not too un-ripe (they should still be firm), peeled and cut into large sliced chunks
  • 1 stick (1/2 cup) of salted butter, cubed
  • 1/4 cup of water
  • 1/4 cup of a light (clear) rum
  • 1 cup of dark brown sugar, packed (you can use light brown too if you already have it, but color won’t be as dark)
  • 1 tsp of cinnamon
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract
  • Vanilla ice cream, for the very end

Bananas Foster goes PERFECTLY over bread pudding, french toast, pancakes and cheesecake too!  It works on basically anything!

  1. Combine all of the ingredients EXCEPT for the bananas and ice cream (obviously) to the Instant Pot. Mix well until the large lumps of the sugar are dissolved and it looks like a molasses
  2. Add the bananas and coat with the sauce being easy with the spoon – don’t smash them up
  3. Secure the lid and hit “Manual” or “Pressure Cook” High Pressure for 8 minutes. Quick release when done.
  4. Transfer to a serving bowl, let cool for a few moments and serve over bowls of vanilla ice cream
  5. Enjoy!
