Looking for an easy way to bake with zucchini? This Instant Pot Zucchini Bread recipe makes a sweet and moist loaf without you ever needing to touch your oven.


  • ½ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • ¼ cup light brown sugar, packed
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup sour cream
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp kosher salt
  • 1 ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup shredded zucchini (about one 4-inch sized zucchini)


  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar. Beat until combined.
  2. Add in eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla extract and sour cream.
  3. Add flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon JUST until combined, do NOT over mix.
  4. Fold in shredded zucchini.
  5. Spray a 7x3-inch push pan with baking spray. Spoon batter into the pan, making sure the top is leveled. Cover completely with foil.
  6. Add 1 ½ cups water to the bottom of the Instant Pot. Place push pan on trivet or sling and lower into the pot. Secure the lid on top and make sure the valve is set to SEALING.
  7. Select HIGH PRESSURE for a cook time of 55 minutes. After cook time ends, allow to naturally release pressure for 15 minutes.
  8. Do a quick release of pressure by moving the valve to VENTING. Open the lid away from your face and lift sling/trivet out of the pot.
  9. Allow bread to cool ten minutes IN the pan.
  10. Using a sturdy jar or mug, place push pan on top, pushing the plate up and lifting the bread out of the pan. Slice the bread onto a cake platter.
  11. Store in airtight container for up to 3 days, or freeze for up to 3 months.
