Step 1

For this recipe, use your 7-inch push pan. Prepare the pan by buttering inside prior to adding the ingredients.

Beat a stick of room temp butter, 1/2 cups sugar, and 2 eggs until all of the sugar is mixed in a medium size bowl.

Then stir in the 3 mashed bananas before adding in the dry ingredients (2 cups all-purpose flour, 1 teaspoon baking soda, 1/2 teaspoon salt) and any nuts you're using. Mix until the batter is smooth, then pour it into the buttered pan. Put the trivet on the bottom of your IP pot (the liner) and add 1 cup of water. You don't want the pan to be in the water, just above it; that's why you need the trivet.

Take a piece of aluminum foil and fold it lengthwise to make a sling. This will go under your pan, but over the trivet, to make it easier to pull out the pan when it's hot. So it's the liner pot (the one that comes with the IP), then 1 cup water, then trivet, then the foil sling, then the pan with your batter.

Manual 50 minutes, 10 minutes NPR (natural pressure release) although I let it NPR for 16 minutes by accident.
