Pressure Cooker Desserts for Any Occasion

During any celebration or family gathering, it’s helpful to have a few pressure cooker recipes ready when your food prep time and space in the oven are both limited. From homemade cheesecake to chocoflan, try something a little extra special. Everyone will be talking about how your dessert was the highlight of the event.


Fresh, homemade cheesecake will delight family and friends. You can serve it year-round and adapt it with a seasonal flavor like fresh berries in the summer, pumpkin cheesecake in the fall, or top it off with peppermint whipped cream and crushed peppermint candies in the winter.

Because cheesecake is a custard, moist, even heat will keep it from tasting dry or rubbery as well as prevent cracking. A water bath in the oven is one way to get to smooth, silky cheesecake perfection, but can be a little intimidating. 

That’s why Pressure Cooker Strawberry Cheesecake is your secret weapon. A pressure cooker gently steams the creamy dessert. Use the sear setting to make a strawberry sauce while your cheesecake cools in the fridge.

Looking for other flavors? There’s plenty of different pressure cooker cheesecakes to try, like our Lemon-Raspberry Cheesecake With Raspberry Whipped Cream. This creamy, sweet, and tart cheesecake is made with a buttery shortbread cookie crust and homemade whipped cream right inside your pressure cooker.


Pudding isn’t just a mix from a box. This homemade Pressure Cooker Rice Pudding comes out creamy and delicious everytime. Usually, homemade pudding needs low heat and a lot of stovetop supervision to thicken to the right consistency. A pressure cooker does all the work for you.

Test Kitchen Tip: This recipe uses arborio rice, the type of rice used to make risotto. There is no need to rinse it before cooking as this would remove the starchy coating that creates its creaminess.


This dessert will make you feel like a magician because the custard starts on the bottom then magically flips to the top as the cake cooks. Chocoflan is traditionally made with a water bath in the oven like a cheesecake. That gentle, moist heat keeps the flan from drying out. But this Pressure Cooker Chocoflan is perfect for big family events because it’s a showstopping cake mix hack, and it doesn’t take up space in the oven.
