Cooking mode

Step-by-step instruction without your screen going to sleep

  • 3 cups water, for steaming
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour, for dusting pan
  • 1 box (14 ounces) banana bread mix, prepared according to box instructions
  • 1/4 cup cocoa powder
  • 1 cup chocolate chips of choice


  • Measuring Cups
  • Medium Bowl
  • Toothpicks
  • Step 1

    Pour 3 cups water into the pot. Push in the legs of the Crisper Tray, then place the tray in the bottom position. Spray the 8” X 4” loaf pan with cooking spray, then dust the bottom and sides of the pan with a thin layer of flour.

  • Step 2

    To make the banana bread, prepare the batter according to the directions on the box. Then add the cocoa powder and chocolate chips and stir until evenly combined. Transfer the batter to the prepared pan and place the pan on the tray.

  • Step 3

    Close the lid and flip the SmartSwitch™ to Rapid Cooker. Select STEAM & BAKE, set temperature to 315°F, and set time to 20 minutes. Press START/STOP to begin cooking (the unit will steam for approx. 25 minutes before baking).

  • Step 4

    When cooking is complete, check doneness by inserting a wooden toothpick into the middle of the bread. If it comes out clean, carefully remove the tray with pan and let cool for at least 1 hour. If the toothpick comes out with moist crumbs stuck to it, continue to bake until cooked all the way through.

  • Step 5

    Once the bread has cooled, slice and serve.
