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


  1. Pour the melted butter in the bottom of a 7 inch cake pan*. Sprinkle 1 cup of the pecans evenly over the butter.
  2. 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.
  3. Sprinkle the brown sugar over the top of the batter.
  4. Pour boiling water over the top of the brown sugar. Don’t stir.
  5. 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*.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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!
