How To Make Easy Pressure Cooker Cornbread

Prep: 20 mins
Cook: 22 mins
Total: 42 mins


  • 1 ⅓ cups cornmeal
  • 2/3 cup flour
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 3 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 stick butter, melted
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 ½ cups corn kernels


  1. Sift the dry ingredients into a bowl and add the corn kernels. Gently mix to combine.

  2. In a separate bowl, mix the wet ingredients together.
  3. Slowly pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, stirring constantly. The batter should be slightly lumpy.

  4. Grease a baking pan that will fit inside of your pressure cooker and pour in the batter.

  5. Cover the baking pan with a tight-fitting lid.

  6. Place the pan inside the pressure cooker so that it's slightly elevated off the bottom using a trivet or foil sling.

  7. Add 2/3 cup of water to the bottom of the pressure cooker.

  8. Bring to high pressure (15 PSI) and reduce the temperature to the lowest setting needed to maintain the temperature. Cook for 22 minutes.

  9. Carefully release the pressure by removing the unit from the heat and allowing it to cool for about an hour, or until the pressure equalizes.
  10. Carefully release any residual pressure and remove the lid.
  11. Remove the disk of cornbread and allow to cool inside the pot on a wire rack.
  12. Serve warm with honey butter and a bowl of chili.
