Instant Pot Rosemary Bread


This rosemary bread is very delicious and loved in many regions. Cook this bread in the instant pot which will enhance its taste.

Due to the long proofing in the instant pot, the bread comes out soft with a crispy crust. And rosemary gives piquancy.

Ideally for sandwiches. Just lay a piece of baked meat on top.

  1. I find the directions confusing. You say to add the rosemary in the first step but then to sprinkle the dough ball with rosemary later on. Should the rosemary be divided and how much for each step? Also, which setting for the Instant Pot in Step 3? I’m assuming it’s the yogurt setting, but I don’t like to assume when it comes to baking. However, it does sound like a tasty recipe that I would like to try! Thanks.


    1. The yogurt setting keeps the Instant Pot at about 110 degrees, this step is proofing the dough. Alternatively, you could proof the dough in your oven. Place a pan of boiling water in the bottom of your oven (turned off) and place the pan of dough on top and shut the oven door. This will create a similar effect as the yogurt setting, with a warm temperature and steamy environment.

  3. Several people asked what setting to use if they do not have a yogurt setting. Could you please help by answering this question?

    1. I answered this on another comment but wanted to make sure you saw my response: instead of using the instant pot for this step, place a pan of boiling water in the bottom of your oven (turned off) and place the pan of dough on top and shut the oven door. This will create a similar effect as the yogurt setting. The warm setting is a little too warm and may kill the yeast.

    1. I made this in the oven for a crispy crust, but you could try cooking it in the Instant Pot, I just don’t think it would develop a crispy crust.
