Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 7 minutes
Servings 6 servings


  • 6 Honey Crisp apples - peeled and sliced
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup Maple Syrup
  • 3 Tablespoons butter - melted
  • 1 1/4 cup water
  • 2 heaping Tablespoons cornstarch

For Topping:

  • Whipped cream
  • Caramel Syrup


  1. Peel and slice your apples into a large bowl.  Sprinkle with lemon juice, and toss the apples in the juice.

  2. In another bowl, combine the Brown sugar, sugar, Cinnamon, Nutmeg, Maple Syrup, and melted butter, until completely blended. Pour the apple into the brown sugar mixture, and stir well to coat. 

  3. In another bowl, combine the water and corn starch, until the corn starch is smooth. Pour the Apples into the Instant Pot, add the cornstarch, and stir well. 

  4. Place the lid on the Instant Pot until it beeps and locks.  

  5. Make sure the pressure valve is set to SEALING, and press the MANUAL button, and set the time for 7 minutes. 

  6. When the Instant Pot is done cooking, and goes to OFF, let the IP naturally release the pressure.

  7. Turn the pressure Valve from Sealing to VENTING, to make sure all pressure has been released.   When all the pressure has been released, and the FLOAT VALVE is down, remove the lid, and stir the Apples with a large spatula.

  8. Allow the Apples to cool for about 10 minutes, and then lift the Liner from the Instant Pot (using oven mitts, or pot holders). 

  9. Serve in individual bowls and top with whipped cream, and caramel syrup drizzled over the top.  Enjoy!

Recipe Notes


Caramel Syrup can be found in the Ice Cream section of most grocery stores.  Some stores may also have it in the isle with Syrup, or Honey.  I used Hershey's Caramel Syrup.  It's thick and rich, and adds a wonderful flavor drizzled across the whipped cream or vanilla ice cream, with the Apples.
