  6. Put the trivet inside your Instant Pot and add 1 cup of water. The water is necessary for the pot to pressurize.

  7. Place the covered apple crumble on the trivet. Press the "Manual" or "Pressure Cook" button and adjust the time to 25 minutes on high pressure.

  8. When the pot beeps, immediately release the pressure. Carefully lift the trivet with the baking dish out of the Instant Pot.

  9. To finish in the oven, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Remove the lid from the baking dish and bake until browned and bubbly (about 15 to 20 minutes).
