  1. The butter listed in the recipe... Is that for greasing the casserole dish or does it get blended in with the ingredients?

  2. Hi Corri
    Not sure what I did wrong but this was an absolute fail! It seems like it was to watery. You sure about adding the cup of water? When it came out I thought maybe I misread and the cup of water was fo the instant pot. But it definitely doesn't say that. I really really wanted real banana pudding not vanilla with banana slices. However what I got was a pile of really bad looking slop. Thoughts?

    1. After you put the trivet in, then you add the 1 cup of water. Do not put it in with the ingredients! Then you place the casserole dish of ingredients on the trivet. Hope this helps! So sorry no one has bothered to answer your question until now.

      1. Thanks for your help with this, Dolores! I hope that this has helped you, Lynne. With so many comments to respond to, sometimes they can get lost and overlooked. I'll try my best to answer questions in the future.

    2. 5 stars
      The cup of water was for the bottom of the insta-pot below the trivet. It created steam to help cook the custard.
