  • cup cornmeal
  • cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • cup buttermilk or regular milk
  • 2 tablespoon honey or sugar
  • 1 tablespoon butter melted


  • Spray a (food/oven safe) silicone ice cube tray (six 2” squares) with cooking spray. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl combine the cornmeal, flour, baking powder and salt.
  • In a separate small bowl add eggs and whisk. Add buttermilk, honey and melted butter. Stir to combine. Pour wet ingredients into bowl with flour/cornmeal mixture and continue to stir to combine. Fill each square of ice cube tray with batter and cover with aluminum foil.
  • Add 1 cup water to the bottom of the Instant Pot. Using the trivet that came with the Instant Pot, place the ice cube tray on the trivet and use handles to lower into the Instant Pot.
  • Lock the lid in place, set the vent to SEALING. Select MANUAL/PRESSURE COOK , HIGH PRESSURE and set time to 12 minutes. When the cooking cycle has completed allow the Instant Pot to do a NATURAL RELEASE. Open lid and remove ice cube tray, remove aluminum foil and allow to rest for 5 minutes before removing mini cornbread squares from tray.


This recipe can be made in a silicone "egg bites" tray (availabe on Amazon) instead of a silicone ice cube tray. Fill "egg bites" ½-3/4 full and cover tray in aluminum foil. Cook for 5 minutes on HIGH PRESSURE, followed by a natural release. Remove tray from Instant Pot and remove aluminum foil. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before removing from tray.
