Ever just get that craving for something sweet late at night but you don’t want to spend the time making something (or eat so many calories late at night)? Me too! Some of you know that I love my Instant pot, mostly for easy weeknight dinners, but as I have recently discovered it’s easy to make super awesome desserts in it too! My little family loves all things apples. Applesauce, apple slices, apple pie, all of it. So naturally I had to try out some Instant Pot Baked Apples!
It’s the easy and fast way to make baked apples, and man-oh-man are they tasty. The best part? It takes 8 minutes to make 6 of them. (Yes, really).
Here how to make my Instant Pot Baked Apples Recipe
You Will Need:
- 6 Apples (flavor of your choosing! I used Gala apples and they turned out perfect.)
- 1 Cup Apple Juice (you could also use red wine)
- 1/2 Cup Sugar
- 2 tbsp Cinnamon
Directions for Instant pot Baked Apples:
First, Wash and core your apples.
Next, Place up to 6 apples in your instant pot. Pour your juice over them.
Then, Sprinkle your sugar and cinnamon over your apples.
Next, Lock your lid in place and cook for 8 minutes. Once done cooking you can either release the pressure manually or let it come down naturally.
Finally, Serve hot in bowls with some of your cooking liquid. I like to serve mine with whipped cream or ice cream.
That’s it! Just a few simple steps and about 10 minutes of your time and you have an awesome dessert for everyone. Enjoy!
