  • Instant Pot with Yogurt Button


  • Prepared Bread Dough


  • When you have your prepared bread dough and you are ready for it to rest and rise, plug your Instant pot in.
  • Grease the liner with either olive oil or spray with cooking spray.
  • Place your dough inside the liner. Cover with a lid. (if using the Instant Pot lid, set to venting.)
  • Press the yogurt button and adjust until it shows 'normal' and 8:00 is on the display. The Instant Pot will beep and then begin counting up.
  • Now, allow the dough to rise according to your recipe, usually either double or triple. Use the measurement marks on the side of the liner to help you measure once your dough has doubled.
  • If you would like some specific bread recipes with exact proofing times, check the notes below.
