Making bread using an Instant Pot® may seem a little strange at first until. I mean baking crusty bread in a pressure cooker just doesn’t sound possible. Well, the baking part might not work out in the Instant Pot® but what does is making a fantastic, flavorful dough. By using the yogurt button on the Instant Pot® and placing the bread dough inside for several hours, the dough ferments and a fantastic sourdough is formed. If you know a little about sourdough bread, then you know that some “sours”, as they are called, are decades old. Sourdough bread is made using pieces of these old, flavorful sours that have aged and developed their unique flavor overtime. But we don’t have time to age a sour for years and years, we want sourdough now! And by using the Instant Pot®, you will get a quick yet amazingly tasty sourdough bread in a fraction of the time.
How did the flavor of this sourdough compare to one with century old sours? Pretty darn good right?! Thanks Instant Pot® for making that flavor happen! If you have any sourdough questions before you start cooking, leave them in the comments below and we will answer ASAP!
