Instant Pot Accessories you’ll need to Make these IP Dessert Recipes
Before we get to the dessert recipes, let’s talk Instant Pot Accessories for a minute. In addition to your Instant Pot, you’ll also need the right sized pans to fit inside your IP. A good rule of thumb is 6″ and 7″ pans will fit inside 6 qt Instant Pots and 8″ pans will fit inside 8 qt Instant Pots. Make sure your pans fit your instant Pot before you try these recipes. 🙂
- Ramekins – Ramekins come in handy for instant put puddings and . You can also use 8 ounce mason jelly jars like I used in this pudding recipe!

- 6 Cup Bundt Pan – for making bundt cakes.
- 8″ Angel Food Cake Pan (if you have an 8 qt Instant Pot)
- 6″ Angel Food Cake Pan (if you have a 6 qt Instant Pot)

The other Instant Pot accessory you may want to invest in, is a set of colored sealing rings. One of my favorite things to cook in my Instant Pot is unsoaked dried beans. If you’ve used your instant pot a lot, you probably noticed that it retains an odor that can transfer to other dishes. If I don’t want my lovely flourless cake to taste like the dried beans I love to cook, all I have to do is switch out the rings. You can get a set of three different colored sealing rings on Amazon for $15 or less. Here’s a set for a 6 qt Instant Pot, and here’s a set for an 8 qt Instant Pot.
