Pros & Cons of using pressure cooker
- Pressure cooker do a great job in baking a cake.So anyone can bake a cake without worrying about convection oven.I am sure you can bake crispy cookies as well.
- The softness & the flavor of cake would be almost equal to the oven cake.No compensation.
- Baking is done fastly in a cooker than oven based on the flame.
- You can either use the powdered salt/sand or in empty cooker for baking the cake.As i don’t want to heat my cooker empty,i used salt here.You can use the same salt for repeated baking.No need to change it everytime.
- Actually water is not suggested to use inside pressure cooker by baking experts.But i have baked a cake adding water & got good results HERE.If you buy a readymade pressure cooker cake mix,water is sugessted for baking.So i am not sure about this point.
- You should be very careful with the baking time when you use pressure cooker because it varies as per the cooker metal,size & the flame.If you use indolium cooker,heat may vary.I used steel cooker here.So you should stay nearby and keep checking every 10 minutes else cake will burn very quickly.Baking is done fastly in cooker than oven.You can easily identify the correct baking with the smell of cake.It wafts through your house nicely.
- DO NOT use your cooker for baking the cake very often because cooker will lose its shine and life.DO NOT use gasket.It may burn due to over heat.
- The most important thing which i felt bad is the stain of cooker.The color of cooker changes to dark brown after heating for 30-40 minutes continuously.So you have to wash it atleast for 10 minutes to remove its stains
Try this eggless plum cake recipe using pressure cooker and enjoy this Christmas festival!!
