  • 2 containers large jumbo biscuits, 8 biscuits per tube
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup whole pecans
  • 1/4 cup melted butter


  • Spray a small, 6 cup bundt pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  • In a small bowl, mix sugar and cinnamon together and set aside.
  • Cut each biscuit in one tube into quarters. Place each biscuit quarter into the cinnamon sugar mixture and toss to coat. Place into prepared pan. Add half of the pecans into the pan. Repeat with the remaining tube of biscuits and fill the pan. Drizzle butter over the biscuits.
  • Place 1-1/2 cups of water into the instant pot. Place the trivet into the pot. Take a long piece of foil and fold it in half. Place the foil under the bundt pan and use it to pick up the pan and place inside the instant pot. Tuck in the ends of the foil so it does not extend beyond the top of the instant pot pan.
  • Place the lid on the instant pot and close the pressure release valve. Set the instant pot to manual, high pressure for 20 minutes. When cooking cycle is complete, quick release the steam and carefully remove the lid and pan. Let the pan set for 10 minutes before inverting onto a plate and removing the pan. Let cool just until warm and serve.


Cooking time does not include time it takes for pressure cooker to come to pressure.
