  • Instant Pot Duo Crisp / Pro Crisp


  • 340 `g raisins
  • 4 tbsp butter melted
  • 100 g sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 120 ml milk
  • 1 tsp Vanilla
  • 500 g plain flour
  • 2 tbsp baking powder
  • 250 ml Water
  • 1 tsp sugar


  • In a microwaveable bowl, combine raisins and water. Microwave for 3 minutes, then set aside for at least 5 minutes to allow raisins to absorb water.
  • In a medium bowl, combine butter, sugar, egg, milk and vanilla until uniform.
  • In a large bowl, stir together flour and baking powder.
  • Pour butter mixture into flour mixture and stir to combine.
  • Drain 1/4 cup water from raisins and set aside, then pour the raisins and remaining water into the butter/flour mix and stir until a dough ball forms, adding additional water 1 tbsp at a time from the reserve as necessary.
  • Coat the inside of a 7 inch cake pan with nonstick spray, then pat dough into the pan and cover loosely with foil - do not seal.
  • Pour the 250ml water in the Instant Pot and insert the steam rack. Carefully lower the cake pan on to the steam rack and secure the lid.
  • Select Pressure Cook and set the time for 45 minutes.
  • When the cooking program has finished, let the pressure naturally release for 15 minutes, then quick-release the remaining pressure and remove the lid.
  • Keeping the pan in the Instant Pot, sprinkle 1 tsp of sugar onto the bread
  • Using the Air Fryer lid, place this on top of the Instant Pot and select Broil/Grill and set the time to 3 minutes and temperature at 180°C.
  • When the Broil/Grill program is finished, turn the Instant POt off completely and allow the pan to sit undisturbed until the pan is cool enough to handle, at least 30 minutes.
  • Release the soda bread from the pan, slice and serve
