Print Friendly and PDF
Eggless pressure cooker cake
I tried this cake from an old cookbook. I wanted to post an eggless chocolate cake in my blog but i couldn’t do it. Now i am so happy i did a cake in pressure cooker which is very easy for beginners and for people who don’t own a oven. I just followed the recipe i noted in my cookbook and the result was soft , moist & delicious tasting chocolate cake. I have not used oil/butter/ ghee in this recipe. But i used fresh cream & curd to bring the softness. Do try this cake. You’ll get it perfect for sure.You can also try this recipe in microwave oven ( use convection mode @ 180c) . This cake is apt for beginners.Kids would love this cake !!

INGREDIENTS

PRESSURE COOKER CAKE

  • In a separate bowl take the wet ingredients and add the dry ingredients (PART-I) . mix well in the same direction. The consistency of batter should fall like a thick ribbon.If not add little more milk and mix well. Make sure consistency should be right.
PRESSURE COOKER CAKE
  • Now cover the bottom & sides of the vessel ( i used my aluminum baking pan) with a butter paper and pour the cake mixture into it. Pat it in the bottom of vessel for even spreading.U should fill the batter till half of the vessel because the cake will rise while it cooks..Again cover the top of the vessel with another butter paper tightly o avoid the vapour that goes inside the cake.
PRESSURE COOKER CAKE
  • Then take a big pressure cooker and add water in the base.Keep a plate inside( just as a stand for the vessel in which u bake ,i used mini idli plate here ). Now keep the vessel over the plate. If you are adding water ( if using salt,refer notes section),please add water till half of the size of vessel. If u add more water , the extra water may go into the vessel & the cake mixture will become watery.
PRESSURE COOKER CAKE
  • Do not put the weight valve , keep the flame high and allow the water boil till the full steam comes. Once the full pressure is reached , simmer the flame completely and allow it to cook for 20 minutes exactly without putting weight valve.During this time , steam will be coming out in low pressure. After 20 minutes switch off the flame & give a standing time till all the steam is released completely by itself. Please do not open till that time. It takes maximum of 20 minutes for all the steam to go by itself.
PRESSURE COOKER CAKE
  • Remove the vessel from the cooker and insert a knife or spoon. If it comes out clean ,your cake is done. Cut into pieces & enjoy !!
PRESSURE COOKER CAKE

Enjoy !
Note : You can bake the cake in a cooker by adding salt.For that,you should spread powdered salt in the base of cooker for 2 inches.Use 1/2 kg of salt.Then place the cooker plate and close the cooker by removing the gasket and weight valve.First preheat the cooker in high flame for 5 minutes.Then place the baking pan with cake mixture and cook in  low flame for 20-30 minutes.Check with the back of spoon and remove after the steam is released.
