Instant Pot Chocolate Chip Bread Pudding

This is the best instant pot bread pudding recipe that you're going to come across. Why? Because it's loaded with chocolate chips!

Everyday I fall more in love with my instant pot, especially after I made this Instant Pot chocolate chip bread pudding! Yes…I made it in my IP. Who woulda thunk it could be done? But I wanted to try something new.

Most of you loved my instant pot monkey bread recipe, so I tried to broaden my horizon and make a different dessert in it that’s not cheesecake. Not that I’m against making a cheesecake, but I am trying to think outside of the “pot”.

Instant Pot Chocolate Chip Bread Pudding Is So Easy.

I didn’t think the recipe was going to be as easy to make, but it was! I was also scared about the density and texture of the pudding, was going to stick together in a big clump, or was it going to turn out to be bread soup.

This is the best instant pot bread pudding recipe that you're going to come across. Why? Because it's loaded with chocolate chips!

The biggest part for me was to think about the cooking time in the pot and to NPR or QR. So I tried both types of pressure releases to see what would work best. In the end, there really isn’t a right answer. I didn’t notice any real change in density or texture of the bread pudding.

I also used a PIP method. I have a ton of different sized ramekins and baking dishes in my house, so I grabbed one that would be perfect to make a dessert for two (unless you just want it for you, then I am totally not hating on your for it). However, I actually measured it for you all! It is 5 inches in diameter and 2 inches deep. You do NOT have to use this sized dish. You can use another of comparable size and depth in your IP. So don’t stress if you don’t have this exact piece in your kitchen. I just grabbed what I had lol.

    1. This sounds amazing. Can’t wait to make it, but need some clarification. “Place PIP dish onto of ramekins. ” Not sure what you’re telling me to do here. Obviously I pour the mix into the two ramekins. But…are they sitting on the bottom of the pot in the 1 cup of water? Also, think I’d like to try it without the chocolate. Do I need to adjust the ingredients if I leave out the chocolate? Thanks.

      1. I’m pretty sure he wants you to place the 2 ramekins upside down on the bottom of the pot to set your dish full of bread Pudding on to keep it away from the water.

    2. This was easy and Awe-mazing! Thanks for the great recipe! I made one with white chocolate chips for my husband and the other with dark chocolate chips for me!

    3. I made several variations of this recipe. My favorite was with half choc chips and half butterscotch chips, and I substituted the challah bread with regular raisin bread. I also added a Tbs Bailey’s to the milk.
      I finished it off under the broiler too. It was very delicious!
