  • 1 small loaf cinnamon bread cut in chunks OR 1 loaf of slightly stale bread, 3/4 c sugar and 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 28 oz evaporated milk (2 cans)
  • 5 egg(s)
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 T pumpkin pie spice
  • 3 pats butter

Drizzle Sauce


  • Place the bread (cut into chunks) into a large bowl.
  • In a separate bowl, mix the evaporated milk, eggs, vanilla, and pumpkin pie spice.
  • Pour over the bread, mix thoroughly, and soak for an hour in the fridge.
  • Spray your Instant Pot with cooking spray and pour in the mixture.
  • Place the three pats of butter on top.
  • Close the lid of your Instant Pot, press the Multigrain function and adjust to 30 minutes.
  • Open the lid of your Instant Pot and check the inside of the bread. If it's moist, it's done! If it's still too wet, close the Instant Pot and cook again for 10 minutes (on the Multigrain setting).
  • Once the bread pudding is fully cooked, turn off the Instant Pot and let cool. You can do a quick release of the steam or a natural release. We did a quick release.

For the Drizzle Sauce

  • Place a pot on medium heat on the stove. Add the butter, sugar, and vanilla extract. Heat and stir until fully melted and thickened, about 5 - 8 minutes.
  • Cut the bread pudding into 8 pieces and then drizzle the sauce over each piece. Serve.
