Instant Pot Pumpkin Churro Bites – homemade pumpkin bread bites rolled in cinnamon and sugar made right in the Instant Pot.
Instant Pot Pumpkin Churro Bites
A few weeks ago, I shared these cream cheese stuffed Instant Pot Pumpkin Bites, and I’ve been meaning to post a churro version as well. These pumpkin churro bites are larger than the original pumpkin bites. Since there is no cream cheese stuffing, there is more room for batter in the molds. I used the full recipe from my Pumpkin Cream Muffins as the starting point.
A few people have asked about the texture before making. Since these are cooked with a covered heat, they aren’t the same texture as something baked in the oven, which is a drier heat. The texture is a richer, denser pumpkin bite.
- 2 Silicone Molds and Trivet
- 6 Qt Instant Pot
- Nonstick Cooking Spray
HOW TO MAKE INSTANT POT CHURRO PUMPKIN BITES
- Spray insides of silicone molds with nonstick cooking spray, then spray inside of silicone lids.
- Combine ingredients for pumpkin batter as instructed in the recipe.
- Divide pumpkin batter into molds and cover with silicone lids.
- If you don’t have silicone covers, cover molds tightly with foil.
- Add one cup of water to Instant Pot, then stack molds on trivet and place in Instant Pot.
- Cook on High Pressure for 12 minutes, followed by 10 minutes of Natural Pressure Release.
- Remove Churro bites from Instant Pot and molds.
