What are your favorite desserts to make in the IP? I'm looking for tried and true recipes, otherwise I'd just Google it. Thank you!!

Cheesecake. Get the silicone springform insert, follow all the tips exactly, make an outstanding cheesecake.

Chocolate cheesecake, using the tips from the basic cheesecake recipe.

I am not an expert baker and had never made cheesecake before and these recipes both turned out delicious and surprisingly pretty.

Creme Caramel
* put 400ml of milk, 25gm sugar, and 1/4 vanilla bean (if using) into small mason jar
* fill Instant Pot pot with 1c water, put jar on the rack in the pot to scald the milk. Use "Steam" setting and set for 1 minute. (This is a useful technique called "Pot in pot" or PIP)
* mix 4 eggs in big mason jar then add 25mg sugar and some vanilla extract, and mix with a whisk or a blender
* now caramelize 1/2c sugar (100gm) with bit of water and lemon juice. Pour the caramel into 6 buttered ramekins
* take 1/4c or so of the scalded milk and mix it into the egg mixture ("tempering"), then mix that back into all of the milk
* pour into the ramekins on top of the caramel
* cover the ramekins (some use saran wrap; I use tiny silicone lids
* cook ramekins PIP on Steam for 9min, Natural Release ; I do them 3 at a time
