PRESSURE COOKER CAKE

Easy Home Made Cake


Type of Meal


Bakery ( Simple Cake )


Preparation Time : 20 minutes
Cooking time : 40 minutes


Ingredients


Plain flour (maida) - 1 and 1/2 cup
Powdered sugar - 1 cup
Egg - 1
Refined oil or plain butter - 1/2 cup
Baking soda - 1 teaspoon
Milk - 1 cup
Vanilla essence - 1 teaspoon




Method


Mixture Preparation ( Batter )


1. Beat the egg very well until it becomes lighter and looks like double the original quantity. (As you do while making omlete )
2. Mix sugar and oil together and stir them pretty hard till the mixture becomes light and fluffy.
3. Add the beaten egg to this mixture. Mix well to blend all ingredients thoroughly.
4. Now prepare a mixture of plain flour (maida) and baking powder and sieve it to avoid any lump.
5. Now gradually add this maida mixture, to the batter prepared by mixing sugar, oil and egg.
Note: As you stir the mixture, it will become dense. Add some milk in small amount to make it smooth. Keep on repeating the process of adding maida and then milk as required, till batter is well blended (It should look fluffy/ soft).
6. Add Vanilla essence to the batter and again blend thoroughly.


Cake Preparation


7. Grease the baking tin (or cake tin) with oil and dust it by sprinkling maida over greased surface evenly.
Note: Use baking tin of 6 inch in diameter, so that it can easily get into the pressure cooker.
8. Pour the mixture into the greased baking tin.
Note: Baking Tin should be made of Aluminium
9. Heat the presure cooker on high heat for 2 minutes.

Caution: If baking tin comes into direct contact of the base of cooker, it can harm ( overbake ) the cake.
Remedy: Use cooker container which has big holes in it. You can put the baking tin on that container and then put it inside the presure coker. Even if you do not have the cooker container cake can be made, but there is a big chance of getting its lower part overbaked

10. Now put the cake tin containing the cake batter, inside on cooker dish.( Do not put water inside the pressure cooker)
11. Close the cooker lid and do not put the whistle on the lid.Lower the flame from high to low after 2 minutes.
12. Let it cook for 40 minutes, then switch off the heat. Do not open the lid immediately.

Cooked Cake Testing


13. After 10 minutes open the lid to check whether the cake is done. Put a skewer inside the cake. (Skewer - a long thin pointed piece of metal or wood, used to test whether something is completely cooked )
14. If the mixture will not stick on it, means that cake is done.
15. Serve.


Tips:
For Vegeterian People


You can make the cake without egg. Just add 1/2 cup refined oil more.
Make sure that you stir it pretty hard, till you find air bubble in the batter.

Maitri said...

Hi Abha, Your receipe seems great. But had a doubt, if I have to keep the mixture for an hour before baking it in the pressure cooker.

Abha said...

Hi Maitri, you cannot keep the cake batter for an hour before baking,keep the greased baking tin ready after preparing the batter, put it in the cooker,so that batter would not loose the air bubbles formed in it and will help in rising the cake

Lacks said...

Abha.

It was indeed nice.

But may I trouble you to ask why if I don't have baking tin.

I am alone in Sydney and want this cake for me.

I have small pressure cooker, what else I can choose instead of greased baking tin in which I have to pour the mixture.

Many Thanks,

preeti said...

Hi

I am a starter in cooking. i got excited to see "home made cake-pressure cooker" recipe. So i attempted to bake the cake.

I followed vegetarian recipe. used maida,baking soda,milk, butter and sugar.

The cake looked very good. but the taste disgusting. it was very chewvy and rubbery,not sticky.

I expected the smell to be as equal as smell, we receive passing across a bakery. But received a little baking smell.

I did blending in mixer grinder. is that the mistake.

friends pl help me in baking a good cake, my sister loves plain cake.

manjax said...

Hi The cake came out super. This was the 1st time I attempted baking a cake.

Hi Abha,

great Recipe. gonna try it today. For those who've got problems with the softness part, I guess they gotta try it with another 2 eggs. that makes it 3 eggs.trust me. It'll taste much much better,

Happy Cooking Guys...

Zim said...

Hello!! I tried this one out and it looked round, brown and perfect!! But, when I sliced it, the inside was a bit soggy..I mean as if it wasn't cooked properly...and didn't have that spongy feeling..I heated the cooker initially for 5 mins and then for an hour till the knife came out fine!! I don't know why it wasn't spongy! :(

peppy kutty said...

thanks a lot for your recipe.... i have tried it and i got perfect cake.

Sumana said...

Sandy said...

Divya Sachdeva said...

if you dont eat eggs then put condensed milk(milkmaid) instead of eggs and create a bed of sand or salt at the bottom of your cooker then your cake will not be burnt at the bottom

Divya Sachdeva said...

if you dont have a baking tin then use any sauce pan or fry pan that fits into your cooker but make sure it is entirely made of aluminium.
