I’ve had my 6 Quart Instant Pot almost a year now and I’m loving it so much I just bought a second Mini Instant Pot!
The funny thing is when I first heard about the Instant Pot I thought it was a gimmick. Now, I try to convert everyone I know! (You’ll know I truly love & care about you if I gift you an IP for your birthday.)
This post contains affiliate links (when you buy we make a little money at no cost to you). See our disclosure for more information.
There are a few main dishes I think are amazing in the IP, but my favorite thing to use it for is side dishes. It’s like a shortcut/cheat code and I really needed it. I love cooking dinner but hate juggling my attention to focus on cooking the main dish & side dishes. I don’t have that much attention available to give!
We regularly make my Instant Pot Twice Baked Potato Casserole recipe, but my new obsession is Instant Pot Corn on the Cob cooked in milk, honey, butter and flavored with a little creole seasoning.
The result is a juicy, savory, slightly sweet corn on the cob with a little spice. Oh-so-delicious!
You just throw everything in the Instant Pot and set the cook time for 4-6 minutes, depending on how “done” you like your corn. No stirring or babysitting. A completely hands-off side dish. It’s a dream come true!
Sometimes the creole seasoning smell can linger on the Instant Pot sealing ring. If this happens to you, check out the post I made detailing how you can deodorize your Instant Pot ring.

Instant Pot Milk & Honey Corn on the Cob Recipe
This sweet and creamy Milk & Honey Corn is a delicious & quick Instant Pot side dish recipe.
- Prep Time: 20
- Cook Time: 6
- Total Time: 26 minutes
- Yield: 6 1x
- Category: Side Dishes
- Cuisine: American
6 Ears of Corn
1 Cup Milk
1 Cup Heavy Cream
4 Tbsp Honey
1 Tablespoon Creole or Cajun Seasoning
1 Stick Unsalted Butter
8 cups water
Place all ingredients in your Instant Pot (I used a 6 quart for this recipe). Close the lid and ensure that vent is set to “sealing”.
Cook on “High Pressure” for 4-6 minutes, depending on how done you like your corn.
When Instant Pot has completed cooking, let it NPR (natural pressure release) for 5 minutes. Then quick release the rest of the way.
Remove corn from Instant Pot and serve immediately. Feel free to sprinkle on a little extra cajun spice and ladle the excess liquid on the corn.
*The leftover broth from this recipe can be used for the bases of soups and chowders.

Sound very good , and not very heard ! But you have to send me the Recapi
Can’t wait to make this recipe.
Kiki Johnson says
This is such a clever idea! I would have never thought of boiling corn in anything other than water! I’m sure this tastes absolutely divine and the cooking liquid must taste amazing as well!
I love corn on the cob and these sound incredible. I often cook them with a bit of butter for that flavour or boiling but this method sounds very tasty and something i think ill have to try!

We love corn on the cob but I have never made them with milk and honey. Sounds so yum. I think my kids would enjoy this. Saving this for later. Love that you used an instant pot.
Kelly Anthony says
Ok, this is genius! I would never have thought to put honey on corn, but it totally makes sense!
Jenni LeBaron says
I love this recipe. Milk and honey is the perfect way to compliment the sweetness of the corn.
Cathleen @ A Taste of Madness says
Man!! I need to get me an Instant Pot! I totally forgot about prime day the other day. Gotta wait until Black Friday!
These look amazing. I had no idea you can make corn in the instant pot!
I cannot wait to try this corn on the cob recipe the next time we grill out. The combination of flavors and the ease of cooking it in the insta pot make this one great dish!
Kim @ Berly's Kitchen says
I shared this video on my FB page the other day, and it got good engagement. It’s a great recipe and something I haven’t seen. What a great way to flavor corn! The Instant Pot makes it super simple to prepare, too!

Corn on the cob in an instant pot?! I LOVE it! I never seem to have enough big pots for making food for get-togethers. I’m definitely going to utilize my instant pot next time.
VV Cromcer says
Looks good, sounds good, gotta get an instant pot to try it……seems you should use the leftover broth as a choweder like, potatoe, musroom or something like that
Melissa duncan says
That looks amazing. Gotta try it
Patty Schultz says
why do folks give this five stars and they haven’t even tried it? I tried it for family night supper at church. Didn’t allow the 5 minutes to NPR, since I was in a hurry. Debris from the corn clogged the steam guard and liquid just sprayed out onto the counter. OOPS!!!!
Big mess. Embarrassing. Very good though. I’ll do better next time. With that much liquid it takes about 25 minutes to come up to pressure.
Loved this recipe!! Dies anyone have any ideas for soups to make with the broth?
