Step 5: Cover the bread pudding pan with foil and place the covered pan on the rack. For best results, use an aluminum or stainless steel pan. If you are using glass or Corningware, you may need to increase cook times.

Step 6: Close the lid and set the Instant Pot on High Pressure for 40 minutes. Allow the pressure cooker to rest for 10 minutes. At the end of the 10 minutes, release all remaining pressure.
