It’s rhubarb season and fortunately, my mother-in-law gives me rhubarb from her garden every year. I love the tart flavor rhubarb gives sauces. I also like that the rhubarb breaks down as it cooks and adds a nice texture to the sauce. 

Making  Triple Berry Rhubarb Pancake Sauce in an Instant Pot

An Instant Pot is one of the most popular brands of electric pressure cookers. They are easy to use and your Instant Pot can help you create this great Triple Berry Rhubarb Pancake Sauce!

Often on Sundays I make pancakes for my family for breakfast. I’ll usually make Whole Wheat Pancakes to bump up the nutrition just little bit, but I do like to change them up with different sauces and toppings. So when my mother-in-law sent some rhubarb home with my husband, I decided to create a Pressure Cooker Triple Berry Rhubarb Pancake Sauce.

Fruit releases a lot of liquid when you pressure cook it and the sugar dissolves, so you do not need to add extra liquid when you make this sauce. However, if your pot struggles to come to pressure, you could add a little water or fruit juice.

In addition to using this sauce to top your favorite pancakes or waffles, you could also use it as an ice cream topping, or serve it over shortcakes, angel food cake, or my favorite Cream Cheese Bundt Pound Cake.

No matter how you serve it, you’re going to love it. It’s a great mix of juicy pressure cooked fruit, rhubarb, and fresh berries.
