I love cakes and I am sure so would you. What if I tell you that I can show you how to make cakes at home without an oven? And that too, an eggless cake.
So, these were 2 of the biggest problems that I faced with cakes. I preferred eggless cakes for multiple reasons. And at the same time, I wanted to make cakes at home but without using an oven.
When I was a kid, I had seen my mom making cakes in a pressure cooker. Those were simple cakes but tasted yummy. This came as an inspiration to me and I felt, I could improvise it a little and make different varieties of cakes at home. And that’s how this journey with cooker cakes started.
Initially I blundered a lot. Some of the cakes went on to become disasters. But gradually I learn’t the tricks and then the cakes started coming out nice and tasty.
When we decided to start off with videos, we felt that a pressure cooker cake recipe would be the best one to start it with. So today I am going to share “Eggless Chocolate Cake recipe in Pressure Cooker ” with you all. I hope you like this video. Let me know your thoughts and feedback and we will create many more such interesting videos.
- Cocoa powder - 2 tbsp
- Plain flour maida - 1 1/4 cups
- Baking powder - 1 1/2 tsp
- Soda bi-carb - 1/2 tsp
- Condensed milk - 3/4 cup
- Melted butter - 4 tbsp
- Vanilla essence - 1 tsp
- Salt - 1 cup
- Butter - 1/2 tsp melted, for greasing
- Plain flour maida - for dusting
- Grease a 175 mm. (7”) diameter cake tin with butter on all the sides. Dust it with plain flour and sift to ensure uniform distribution of the flour.
- Shake and tap the tin onto the plate,
- Remove the excess flour and keep it aside.
- Now in a deep bowl add plain flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and soda bi-carb. Mix well and keep aside.
- Take another deep bowl combine the condensed milk, melted butter, vanilla essence and mix well.
- Add the prepared plain flour-cocoa mixture to this mixture along with 6 tbsp of water and mix gently with spatula.
- Pour the prepared cake batter into the greased and dusted tin and spread it evenly.
- Now take a 5 liter pressure cooker.(Its better to use big size of the cooker in order to bake without any hassle)
- Use the cooker plate to keep the distance between baking tray and cooker base.
- This will help keep the baking tin away from the direct heat and the cake will not get burnt from the base.
- Now keep the cooker plate in the cooker and then place the baking tin carefully on top of it ensuring it doesn't touch anywhere in the cooker.
- Close the cooker lid, switch on the stove and preheat the cooker.
- Open the lid of the pressure cooker, place the cake tin on the perforated plate. Cover it with a lid without the ring and whistle.
- Steam on a medium for 20 to 22 minutes or till the cake is done.
- Allow the steam to escape before opening the lid. Keep aside to cool for 10 minutes.
- After 30 to 35 minutes of baking, open the cooker lid.
- Take a toothpick and check if the cake is baked.
- You can just poke toothpick at the center of cake. If it comes out clean,then your cake is ready.
- And if not, you need to bake it for another 5-6 minutes.
- Separate the cake from the baking tin using knife.
- Now, take a plate. Cover it on top of the baking tin and flip it over, gently tap on top so that the cake is released.
- Turn it upside down again.
You can use Ghee instead of butter.(the quantity will remain the same)
You can decorate the cake, the way you want to.
