Instant Pot Blueberry Grunt

I love desserts and fruit pastries are my favorites. You will love this Blueberry Grunt which is neither too rich nor too sweet. I love the fresh, fruity taste of the sauce which is better than if cooked on the stove.

Grunt is usually cooked in a saucepan on the stove and to make sure the dough  rise well it is necessary to cook them at the right temperature and resist the desire to lift the lid during cooking. No more worries, with the Instant Pot because you no longer have to wonder if the pan is heating at the right temperature and you are not tempted to lift the lid before the end of cooking!

If you do not have a silicone sling for Instant Pot to put the baking dish in the inner pot, prepare a foil sling  as described below.

Foil Sling

Overlay two lengths of 2 feet of aluminum foil, fold in half lengthwise. Fold the tips several times to form handles. Put the baking dish in the center just before putting it in the bowl of the Instant Pot and use the handles to put it into the inner pot of the Instant Pot.

                                          

 

 

 

 

 

 

Servings: 6

Note that the cooking time takes into account the time the Instant Pot takes to start cooking as well as the cooking and resting time before releasing pressure.

  1. Thank you thank you thank you! I am a Nova Scotia native, and was hoping that some wonderful person had adapted a blueberry grunt recipe for use in a pressure cooker. I made this in my 6 qt Instant Pot today, and it is perfect. Add a scoop of Chapman’s Blueberries and Cram frozen yogurt for a real treat!
