Chocolate Cake

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.

Eggless cake

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.

  • 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.


Ensure that you remove the whistle and rubber from the cooker and keep it aside before you start making cake in the cooker.
You can use Ghee instead of butter.(the quantity will remain the same)
You can decorate the cake, the way you want to.
