There’s one fruit that I just can’t deal with as a standalone. I mean, I love fruits and veggies, nearly all of them. But this one, there’s no question that I could do without it. The one I can’t stand? Bananas. I don’t know if it’s a texture thing or what, but I don’t like them one bit.

But you see, I like banana pudding. I like banana muffins. And the best one? Banana bread. I really, really like banana bread. Maybe it’s my love of pudding and bread that just overpowers the rest. But I don’t want no bananas out the peel. Thankfully, that doesn’t matter with this pressure cooker banana bread.

Elijah (my son), loves all the fruits. But he gets on kicks where he only wants to eat one of them. So he may want to eat 5 bananas one day and then he doesn’t want any more for a week. So we always end up with a couple lonely ‘naners just hanging out and going bad.

Which is why I originally began testing this pressure cooker banana bread. I needed to get rid of our overripe bananas. But then it was so yummy I decided to bring it over to my mom’s for a get-together. When everyone scarfed it down, I figured I had a keeper on my hands.

Seriously, you can cook anything in this magic pot and it comes out a winner. Even for someone like me who is nowhere close to a baker. But, if we’re being honest, everything’s a little better when you add chocolate to it.

Honest though, there was a few flops with this. I really was craving a peanut butter version that ended up being TERRIBLE. I’m thinking about trying my hand at that one again. But it was so dense and crumbly. I’m not a baker, so I still am baffled that this one came out sooooo right.

  1. Made this recipe with one change because I didn’t have any honey. 🙁 Used brown sugar instead of regular sugar. Used a springform pan, cooked for the given time, and it was still under pressure at an hour and 15 minutes. I wasn’t home, so FaceTimed with my son and he removed it. Looked delish, but gave him struck orders not to let anyone eat it. He drained off the minimal amount of water and left it alone. I got home and another child had decided to have a chunk. It was in need of some time in the oven. Threw it in for 30 minutes. Removed it and there was quite a bit of smoke spewing from my oven. Guess it soaked up quite a bit and it dripped on the bottom of the oven. It tastes great, but next time I’m using a bundt pan, LoL!
