Instructions
  1. Coat the inner pot of the Instant Pot with cooking spray.
  2. Place cubed bread in the pot
  3. Combine eggs, maple syrup, cinnamon, salt, cloves and nutmeg in a large bowl.
  4. Add milk, stirring with a whisk until blended. Pour milk mixture over bread in the pot, pressing gently with a spoon to coat all bread pieces.
  5. Tear off a 10 1/2 inch long piece of alluminum foil; lay foil on top of inner pot, gently smoothing it down the side of the pot. trim pointed corners even with rest of the foil, and tightly tuck it under the rim
  6. Cut 2 (1 1/4 inch long) slit in the foil about one inch from the edge with a thin sharp knife. Cut a second slit parallel to and about 1 inch to the inside of the first. Repeat this procedure 3 times, creating 2 concentric slits in foil at intervals of 12, 3, 6, and 9 o'clock.
  7. Set inner pot inside cooker. Close and lock the lid of the Instant Pot. Turn steam release handle to Venting. Select the Slow Cook function and adjust time to 90 minutes cooking time.
  8. Serve warm sprinkled with powdered sugar. Enjoy!

    I was missing the cloves and nutmeg but it came out ok. Too moist, perhaos the slits were not wide enough?

    This was very very mushy. I ended up taking the contents out of the pot and throwing into my cast iron skillet in quarters. Browned up both sides, sprinkled with powdered sugar and served. But after waiting and hour and a half I was disappointed.

    After an hour and a half I had to scoop a gummy wet mess out of my pot into a casserole dish and into the oven to ACTUALLY COOK. had I just used the oven to begin with we’d be eating breakfast by now and I wouldnt be spending 30 more minutes trying to clean the glued on mess stuck to the bottom of the pot. My clue should have been the instructions for cutting vents into the aluminum foil—some engineer at Time Inc. wrote this recipe—not a cook. Arrggghhh!

    And another comment…look at the photo of the dish…how do you cut SQUARE portions out of a ROUND instant pot??? Hey, Time Inc. If you are simply gonna take regular recipes out of the Betty Crocker Cookpot and change the baking instructions to what you think will work in the Instant Pot you might want to TEST THEM first

    Confession, i didn’t use the Instant pot.
    Pulled a loaf of my homemade sourdough bread from the freezer to thaw overnight.
    Sliced and cubed the bread and put that into a buttered 8×12 pyrex casserole.
    Made a batter of the eggs, milk abd the other ingedients. Added a ½ cup brown sugar and blended with an immersion blender. Poured this over the bread cubes and gently mixed the bread to absorb the liquid. Put it into a 325F oven for 30 minutes. Then raised the temperature 450F for 5 minutes.

    I tried to make this despite the reviews and mine was soggy too! Is it possible there is something missing from the recipe thats making peoples turn out soggy? The whole thing was wasted and ended up in the trash.

    Followed the recipe and it turned out perfect, not watery or mushy like some have said, all i did was follow the recipe and slow cook it on more for the 90 minutes or an hour and a half which is the same thing like the recipe says too.

    I followed the recipe to the letter. I even tried to follow the weird aluminum foil steps decribed in the recipe. Bottom line my end product looked like one of those Pintrist fail pictures.

    I will ask for this recipe to be removed. Waste of a loaf of bread.

    I should have read the reviews before i made this. It was awful. Made it exactly as stated in the recipe and it looked nothing like the picture. It was a big pile of mush. Tasted terrible and went right into the garbage. Those of you that said you liked this recipe, i question whether you actually even made it. Dont waste your time and groceries on this one. Yuck!

    I found this exact recipe on a different site and the only difference was the cook time. It suggested 1h30 on slow cook. I did it that way and it came out great!

    I made this and I really liked it. I read the reviews before hand and I was not sure what to do. We ended up using only 1 cup of milk and it turned out great! The only thing was that it didn’t turn out like the picture.
