Instant Pot Praline Pecan Cobbler
A few weeks ago my husband and I visited Nashville, Tennessee for a few days. We were told by friends that we must eat at a restaurant called Puckett’s and order the skillet pecan cobbler. We did as we were told and have been dreaming of that dessert ever since.
Let me get one thing straight. I would choose a dark chocolate brownie and ice cream over any non-chocolate dessert about 99% of the time. But after trying the pecan cobbler at Puckett’s I was blown away. I’m not a nut fan and I’m not even a pecan pie fan but this dessert was to die for.
So of course I had to come home and try to recreate it to the best of my ability. And I must say that it turned out pretty darn good. My husband said, “this is just as good as what we ordered at the restaurant!” I agreed. My version was a little more moist, like a bread pudding. The restaurant’s version was more of a traditional cobbler. But both were good. However since we don’t have a Puckett’s in our neighborhood we will have to live with the homemade version until we can visit Nashville again.
I would love to know if you like this dessert as much as we did! Please try it soon and let me know what you think.

What Equipment Did You Use?
To make Instant Pot Praline Pecan Cobbler I used my 6 quart Instant Pot Duo 60 7 in 1*. I love this Instant Pot because it has the yogurt making function which I use almost weekly. It has two pressure settings (high and low), and there are also little slots in the handles so that you can rest the lid there instead of putting it down on your counter-top. You can also use an 8 quart Instant Pot to make this recipe.
The cobbler was baked in a 7 inch by 3 inch Fat Daddios cake pan*. You can also use a bundt cake pan for this recipe.Print
A gooey, caramelly praline pecan cobbler dessert that will blow your socks off. With a scoop of vanilla ice cream or whipped cream it tastes like heaven in your mouth.
- 4 Tbsp melted butter
- 1 1/4 cup praline pecans (divided) see note below
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup boiling water
- For serving: whipped cream or vanilla ice cream
- Pour the melted butter in the bottom of a 7 inch cake pan*. Sprinkle 1 cup of the pecans evenly over the butter.
- In a medium bowl mix flour, baking powder, salt, sugar, milk and vanilla. Stir to combine, but don’t over-mix. Scrape the batter out of the bowl and spread it evenly over the pecans.
- Sprinkle the brown sugar over the top of the batter.
- Pour boiling water over the top of the brown sugar. Don’t stir.
- Pour 1 ½ cups of water into the bottom of your Instant Pot. Loosely top the pan with a square of foil to prevent drippage on the top of the cobbler. Lower the cake pan into the bottom of your Instant Pot with a trivet or sling*.
- Cover your Instant Pot and secure the lid. Make sure the valve is set to sealing. Set the manual/pressure cook button to 28 minutes on high pressure. When the time is up perform a quick release or let it sit for 5 minutes and then perform a quick release.
- Optional: remove the foil and place the cobbler under your oven’s broiler for 3 minutes to brown up the top of the cake a little.
- Top the cobbler with the rest of your pecans. Scoop servings out and top with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
Praline Pecans are pecans that are coated in a sweet and crunchy coating. I found a can of praline pecans are Smith’s (Kroger). They were with the other jarred nuts and were the Private Selection brand. They are super tasty!
