Instant Pot Breakfast Peach Cobbler

white bowl with peach cobbler, cream, and a spoon

Sweet peaches play a starring role in this Instant Pot Breakfast Peach Cobbler.  A delicious, healthy version of the classic dessert.


  • 2 very ripe bananas, mashed (about 1 cup)
  • ¼ cup honey
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ cup part skim or whole ricotta cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups white whole wheat flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 45 cups sliced peaches (about 5 peaches depending on the size, may substitute with canned peaches)
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch


  1. Lightly spray a 7 inch cake pan or 1 ½ quart or larger heat safe baking dish with nonstick spray and set aside.
  2. Mash bananas on a plate until very smooth.  Scrape into a large bowl.
  3. Add honey, eggs, and vanilla extract and whisk until smooth.
  4. Add ricotta cheese; whisk until well incorporated and smooth.
  5. In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.  Add to banana batter and stir just until incorporated.
  6. To the same bowl that had the dry ingredients in it, toss the sliced peaches and cornstarch until there are no dry bits of cornstarch.
  7. Dump peaches into prepared baking dish.  Scrape batter on top of peaches and smooth the top.
  8. Add 1 ½ cups of water to the pressure cooker pot and place trivet inside.  Place dish on the trivet using a silicone or tin foil sling to make for easier removal.
  9. Secure the lid and turn pressure cooker knob to a sealed position.  Cook at high pressure for 45 minutes.
  10. When cooking is complete, use a natural release for 10 minutes, then release any remaining pressure.
  11. For cleaner serving, let sit for 10 minutes so the peaches can thicken a bit.
  12. Serve hot with a splash of cream in each bowl.


  • Drained canned peaches make a great substitute for fresh peaches if they aren’t in season.  
  • If your peaches are on the tart side, drizzle them with a bit of honey.
  • May substitute honey with maple syrup or agave.
  • For more of a dessert feel, add a scoop of vanilla ice cream to each bowl.
