Instant Pot Monkey Bread - Use 1 can of biscuits and half the recipe. Assemble the exact same way. Cover with aluminum foil. Pour 1 cup of water in the Instant Pot and place a trivet in the pot. Lower your bundt pan, and seal the lid. Pressure cook high manual pressure for 20 minutes followed by 10 minutes of natural release. Once done, remove, and enjoy.

Ripe bananas are important to get that rich banana flavor.

If you do not want to use canned biscuits, you can use frozen dinner roll dough, you slice. Or make homemade bread dough.

If you don't want to use a bundt pan simply bake in a 9x13 pan for 20-25 minutes or until baked fully.
