Can you use parchment paper in the Instant Pot?
Yes, you can. When your bread dough has reached a point where it’s starting to get sticky, you can use the parchment paper in the Instant Pot to avoid a mess that can be time-consuming to clean.
Can you use silicone bakeware in an Instant Pot?
While there might not be a list that describes every single type of bakeware that you can use in the Instant Pot, you definitely want to use bakeware that can withstand the heat from an Instant Pot. A good rule of thumb is that you can use ones that are “oven-safe.” Here’s a list of some of our favorite accessories and must-have gifts just to help you out too!
Can I bake in my Instant Pot?

What happens if you put too much yeast in bread?
Putting yeast in bread is a good thing, but sometimes, you can actually have too much. If you think your bread has too much yeast added, more than likely you’re probably right.
Many people think that if they add in more yeast than the recipe calls for it will cause their bread to rise quicker than normal. And while they might be correct about that, there’s also the chance that their homemade bread will have an overly strong taste of yeast, too.
Adding too much yeast on accident happens, but I wouldn’t recommend doing it on purpose. It really can alter the final taste and flavor of the food.

How do you keep homemade bread fresh?
It’s no secret that homemade bread is soft and delicious the first day that it’s baked. But what about in the days following when it starts to dry out a bit? If you don’t keep your bread in some sort of sealable container, it’s going to turn hard and dry within a day or two.
If you’re looking for ways that you can keep your soy-free whole wheat bread as fresh as possible, you need to invest in a bread saver or container that you can close the lid to keep the air out.

Can you make homemade bread without adding yeast?
You can, but it is going to be very, very flat. The whole purpose of adding in yeast to your bread is to give it the chance to raise up and become airy. Leaving out the yeast will change the flavor a bit and also cause your bread to be flat and dense.
You can actually find recipes that do not call for yeast if you’re looking for one.

- 3 cups whole wheat flour
- 3 tbsp honey
- 1 ½ cups milk
- 3 tsp yeast (or 1 package)
- 2 tsp salt
1. Set your Instant Pot to “saute” and pour the milk and honey into the pot. After about two minutes turn the pot off, it will continue to heat up. (You want the milk to be warm to the touch, around 105-110 degrees F. This part is important, if you get the milk too hot it will kill the yeast, so use a thermometer to be sure.)
2. Once the milk has reached the correct temperature add in the yeast. Give the mixture a quick stir and wait 5 minutes to make sure the yeast foams. (If it does not foam after 5 minutes start over, your milk was too hot.)
3. Once the yeast starts foaming, add in the flour one cup at a time and mix until combined. Depending on the humidity where you live you may need to use more or less. You want a loose, somewhat sticky dough. Once the dough is combined, set your Instant Pot to the “yogurt” setting and set for 1 hour. Cover with a lid and allow to rise.
4. After the dough has risen, preheat your oven to 450 degrees F.
5. In a Dutch oven or similar oven-safe pot, place a small sheet of parchment paper and give a quick spritz of nonstick spray. Form the dough into a ball and place on the paper in the Dutch oven and cover with a towel for 30 minutes.
6. Bake in a preheated oven for 30 minutes or until golden brown on top.
7. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before cutting.
