When you need a dessert in a hurry, this is what you should make. Not only does this apple crisp come out so tasty and full of warm flavors, but it also cooks in a quarter of the time when compared to a regular apple crisp. The Instant Pot® is going to be your new best friend for baking desserts (that’s right, baking in an Instant Pot®- it really does do everything!)

Begin by peeling and slicing the apples. Place them in the Instant Pot® bowl once ready.


Add the cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and ¼ cup sugar to the instant pot and toss together with the apples. Pour the water over the mix.


In a separate small bowl, mix the butter, flour, remaining ¼ cup sugar, molasses and salt together with your hands until the mixture is crumbly.


Sprinkle the crumble over the top of the apples in the Instant Pot®, covering the surface of the apples completely.


Place the lid on the Instant Pot® and seal by making sure the pressure valve is pointed at the “seal” marker. Press the “manual” button and set the Instant Pot® to high pressure and the timer to eight minutes. Once the crisp is done cooking and your Instant Pot® beeps, let the pressure naturally release. This means don’t touch that pot! It may take about 15-20 minutes to naturally release all the steam but just let it go! Once the pot is done. Serve the crisp immediately while warm with ice cream, whipped cream or by itself!

Wasn’t that apple crisp incredibly easy? Isn’t it nice to be able to bake without every turning the oven on? Let us know what you thought of this recipe or if you have any questions before giving it a try- place a comment below!

This sounds great! Question…recipe says sliced apples, pics show cubed apples. Seems like bigger chunks would not cook down too much. Which do you prefer?

Hi Mary-Jo! This is a great question! If you choose to slice the apples like the recipes states, then they will be nice and soft all the way through. If you cube them (like in the picture) they will still be soft (the Instant Pot® does a great job!) but they will have a very slight crunch which I actually prefer. No matter which you choose, the recipe will work and come out great! Let us know which way you make it!

How much water in the instant pot? I have a 10 qt. Power Pressure XL. Is the bowl you talk about just any old bowl that will fit in the pot, or a specific bowl for Pots?

Hello! The bowl I refer to in step 1 is just the metal Instant Pot® bowl or liner that your machine comes with. You place the apples right into it- no extra equipment needed! The 1/2 cup water in the recipe is still enough no matter what size Instant pot you have 🙂

Great question Claudette! If you cover the top of the cake pan with foil, the crumble will not get soggy. If somehow some water or condensation does get in there, just pot it into your toaster oven or broiler and set the temperature to 475 and crisp for 5 minutes-this will make it nice and crunchy!
