  • 1/2 cup Butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 cup White Sugar
  • 2 Eggs, beaten
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 3 Ripe Bananas, mashed
  • 1/4 cup Buttermilk (or Sour Cream)
  • 2 cups All Purpose Flour, sifted
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp Salt

Tools You'll Need

  • 6 or 8 qt Electric Pressure Cooker
  • Trivet with long handles
  • 3 Mixing Bowls
  • Hand Mixer
  • 3 Egg Bites Silicone Molds*
  • Baking Spray
  • Foil


  1. Add 1 1/2 cups of water to the inner liner of the pressure cooker (2 cups if using the 8 qt).
  2. Spray the bites molds with baking spray and set aside.

  3. In a mixing bowl, use a hand mixer to cream the butter and sugars together.

  4. Add the beaten eggs and vanilla to the creamed butter/sugar mixture. Use a spoon to mix well.
  5. In another mixing bowl, mash the ripe bananas using a fork.

  6. Stir the bananas and buttermilk (or sour cream) into the butter/sugar mixture and mix well.

  7. In another mixing bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.
  8. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and gently stir by hand, until just moistened. Don't over mix!

  9. Spoon the batter into prepared bites mold*, fill openings half full (or use a 2 oz ice cream scoop). Cover with foil, leaving some room for the bites to rise a little. Gently crimp the edges.

  10. Set the trivet on the counter, and put the mold on it. Stack a second filled mold on top of that and carefully place it in the pot using the handles.

  11. Close the lid and set the steam release knob to the Sealing position.

  12. Press the Pressure Cook/Manual button or dial, then the +/- button or dial to select 14 minutes. High pressure.
  13. After the cook time is finished, turn the steam release knob to the Venting position to quick release the steam/pressure.
  14. After all of the pressure is out and the pin in the lid drops down, open it and use silicone mitts or pot holders to very carefully remove the trivet, using the handles.
  15. Carefully remove the foil, and release the bites from the mold onto a plate.
  16. Serve the banana bread bites warm, slathered in butter, or let it cool and eat them as you like.

Recipe Notes

*You will need 3 bites molds, or make multiple batches.

It is important to follow the recipe when baking. If you add too many bananas, or other ingredients it may change the outcome.
