I’ve always heard the monkey bread is delicious, however, once I made my Instant Pot Monkey Crack Bread…I was totally addicted! I was skeptical at first wondering what a traditionally oven baked dessert would turn out in the Instant Pot. As it turns out, I didn’t need to worry at all!

This is a dump-and-push-start dessert from heaven! I made this and couldn’t seem to stop eating it! The kids were all about testing this recipe and felt like I should have tested it more. But, I think my Instant Pot Monkey Crack Bread turned out perfect! Don’t forget to PIN this for later because you will definitely want to try this out!

To start, melt the butter. Add to this the cinnamon, white sugar, and dark brown sugar then mix well. Now, it’s really important that you use dark brown sugar for this recipe at this gives the bread that over the top sweetness without having to top it with icing.

Cut the refrigerated biscuits into quarters, and put in a bowl. Add to this the sugar mixture, and stir well.

Add this to the pan you plan to cook the Instant Pot Monkey Crack in. I used a Fat Daddio round cake pan for mine, be sure to grease a little or spray with cooking spray prior to filling the pan.

Cover the pan tightly with foil. Place your rack in the Instant Pot with two cups of water. Seal the lid according to your manufacturers directions. Cook on high pressure for 38 minutes. Once the cooking is complete do a 15-minute natural pressure release. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes prior to serving. Serve immediately or cover to keep for a few days. If it lasts that long! LOL 🙂
