Jump to Recipe

Hey there friends, it’s Jennifer from JENRON DESIGNS, the fall months always seem to have me craving loads of cinnamon flavors. So today I am sharing one of my favorite Sunday morning breakfast treats, filled with cinnamon. It is my Instant Pot Cinnamon Raisin French Toast, perfect for that leisurely brunch paired with a great cup of coffee.

Hey Y’all, today I am using my fun little accessory I got for my Instant Pot, from our very own Home Pressure Cooking line. It is the pretty little flower bundt cake pan that is perfect for making my Instant Pot Cinnamon Raisin French Toast in the 3 quart instant pot.

You only need a few simple ingredients to make this tasty French Toast in flash. I like to use the Pepperidge Farm Cinnamon Raisin bread, cut into 1/2″ cubes. I use a 1/2 cup of half & half, 3 eggs slightly beaten, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1 tbsp Nielsen & Massey Madagascar Vanilla Extract (I use the good stuff, and it is so worth it) and 2 tbsp of cinnamon. Yes, this is in addition to the cinnamon that is already in the bread it just adds more delicious flavor! Mix all these ingredients together in a bowl.

I used an aerosol olive oil cooking spray to grease the flower bundt pan for easy removal, prior to adding my french toast mixture, you can use a butter or coconut spray as well. I used my cooking trivet and 1/2 cup of water in the base of my Instant Pot and cooked at High Pressure Manual Cook for 20 minutes, then allowed to natural vent and rest for 12 minutes.

While the french toast is baking I made the icing drizzle mix. This is made with approximately 1/2 cup of confectioners sugar, 1/2 tsp vanilla, and 1/2 cup of water. If your icing drizzle is to thin you can add more sugar, if it is too thick, thin mixture with a tsp of water until you reach a syrup like consistency.

Once your french toast is cooled, use oven mitts to invert the flower bundt pan onto a plate or cake dish and drizzle with the vanilla icing or syrup. Top with cinnamon and optional pecans, Serve warm.
