  • Place your unopened can of condensed milk into your Instant Pot and cover with water until it covers the can.
  • Place the lid on your Instant Pot, set to sealing and cook on manual for 40 minutes.
  • Preheat the Airfryer to 180c.
  • While the condensed milk is being pressure cooked make your shortbread. Place your flour, sugar and butter into a mixing bowl and rub the fat into the sugar and plain flour. Add the vanilla essence and mix well. Carry on rubbing in the fat and it will make a lovely soft mixture that you can then combine and make a big dough ball with.
  • Flatten down your shortbread onto the baking mat and cook in the Airfryer at 180c for 10 minutes.
  • Remove from the Airfryer and place it on a baking rack to cool.
  • Remove the condensed milk from the Instant Pot which will now be like caramel.
  • Slice your Shortbread in half so that you have two equal pieces and brush a big layer of caramel on top of both pieces and add them to one another so that you have a caramel layer in between the 2 pieces and another layer on top.
  • Allow to cool and then serve.


The condensed milk is used to make the caramel and by using the Instant Pot and pressure cooking it you can take it from a 4 hour cooking time down to 40 minutes.
We use a reusable baking mat in our Airfryer and it saves us a small fortune in replacing baking sheets and keeps our Airfryer clean.
Please note – the shortbread is always cooked under done compared to other cakes. This is because it has a cookie dough kind of taste to it and if you don’t like it like this then double the cooking time.
