Calories 92kcal


  • 2 cups (272g) All-purpose flour
  • 3 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • salt
  • 3 tablespoon unsalted butter melted and cooled
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 cup (354mL) milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • optional berries diced


  • Mix together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a bowl.
  • Add in egg, milk, butter and vanilla extract.
  • Mix the ingredient together until just combined (don’t worry if there are a few lumps).
  • Spray or lightly oil two silicon molds and divide the mixture equally into the molds until they are about two-thirds of the way full.
  • Add a few berries into the mixture, if you are using them.
  • Cover the silicone tray with the tray cover and then cover it with foil around the edges so no condensation can seep into the breakfast bites.
  • Add 1 1/2 cups of water to the Instant Pot and stack the silicon molds on the trivet and add to the Instant Pot.
  • Cover Instant Pot with lid, seal, and set on Pressure Cook or Manual on High for 8 mins and cook until done.
  • Allow for a Natural Pressure Release for 2-3 mins then perform a quick pressure release to release the rest of the pressure.
  • Remove the trays, discard foil and open.
  • Tip the trays over and gently tap the bottom of the mold to remove the bites.
  • Serve warm with maple syrup and extra berries.


  • Use fresh fruit when you can. Frozen fruit will release some water when cooking and could cause your pancake bites to be soggy and wet. 
  • If you only have frozen fruit to use, toss them in a flour to help prevent them from ruining your breakfast. 
  • Don’t overfill the molds with pancake mix or fruit. Only use 2-3 small pieces of fruit per bite. 
  • Serve these immediately while they’re still warm. If they cool down, stick them in the microwave for 30-45 secs. 
  • This recipe makes about 18 bites depending on the size of your molds and the number of add-ins you use.
