Instant Pot Blueberry Loaf
(makes 4 loaves) I used Instant Pot mini loaf pans suitable for 6-8 qt
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 60 minutes (including natural release time)
Total time: 1 hr. 10 min.
2 cups & 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour, divided
2 cups fresh blueberries
2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
In a small bowl mix together 2 tablespoons flour and blueberries.
In a large bowl, beat together your wet ingredients of cream cheese butter, vanilla, and sugar.
Once those are fully incorporated, add one egg at a time. Mix well between adding each egg.
In a separate medium-size bowl, mix together the remaining 2 cups of flour, baking powder, and salt.
While mixing your wet ingredients, slowly add in your dry ingredients until fully incorporated.
Add your blueberries to the mixture and gently fold in.
Add to your instant pot one and a half cups of water, and your trivet.
Add your mixture to a lightly greased bread pan. Cover with foil and place in your instant pot on the trivet.
Close the lid on your instant pot and twist a shot. Close the ceiling valve by pushing it away from you.
Set your instant pot to high-pressure for 45 minutes. Once the time is done, allow it to naturally release for 15 minutes. Once that is done, manually release by opening the valve to release all of the pressure by bringing it toward you.
Using hot pads or a towel, remove the trivet out of your instant pot. Transfer your bread loaves to a cooling rack and let them completely cool.
Once cooled, slice it up, transfer to a plate, and enjoy!
Tip: You can use frozen blueberries, but make sure that they have been thawed and drained very well.
How to Store Your Blueberry Bread
To keep your bread fresh, wrap tightly in plastic wrap.
To freeze the bread, wrap in plastic wrap, followed by aluminum foil. You can freeze the blueberry bread for up to 3 months. To thaw, leave your bread at room temperature for about an hour.
