Cake made in pressure cooker – yes you can make all type of cakes in pressure cooker. Cake made in cooker is soft and moist just like the cake we make in oven you can see in picture . For mixing the cake ingredients i am using blender but you can also use electric blender or spatula. Let’s see how to make cake in pressure cooker.
Preparation time – 15 mins
Cooking time – 45 mins to 1 hour
All purpose flour/maida – 2 cups or 250 gm
Sugar – 1 cup and 2 tbsp or 250 g
Butter – 1 cup or 200 gm
Eggs – 5
Vanilla essence – 1 tsp
Baking powder – 2 tsp
Grease the vessel for baking cake with butter and dust flour. I am using steel vessel for baking cake.
Ensure that all the ingredients are in room temperature. Batter keep eggs and butter out side of the fridge
an hour before you start mixing ingredients.
Add baking powder to flour and strain this mix with the strainer. Keep it aside.
In a big blender take eggs, and blend them for few seconds or until it become soft and fluffy.
Add butter and blend again. Note – i am using blender for mixing the ingredients but you can also use electronic blender or spatula for mixing
Now add sugar and again blend it for a minute or until the mix become soft and fluffy.
Now place this blended mix to the big vessel.
Add vanilla essence and mix well.
Now start adding flour to the mix, a little at a time (in 3 times). Gently fold the mixture until the flour
is mix well with butter mix. But do not over mix just mix gently.
Now place this cake mix in the greased vessel.
Use wide cooker so that it can hold your cake tin. Remove gasket and whistle from the cooker.
Place the cooker stand inside the cooker (I am using stand which comes with cooker). Cover the cooker
with its lid.
Now turn on the flame and keep the cooker on medium – high heat for 5 mins. This is how we pre heat the
cooker like oven.
Now place the cake pan inside the cooker on cooker stand with the help of pan holder without touching the
cooker and close the lid without whistle.
If you are using big burner keep the flame on less then medium. I am using small burner which I am
keeping on high. Do not open the cooker for 45 mins. After 45 mins open the lid and insert a tooth pic
inside the cake if its comes clean then your cake is done, if better stick in it again put the lid and turn
the flame low for 5 to 10 mins. ( baking time depend upon cooker’s thickness and burner’ heat)
After 55 mins again insert the tooth pic like before to check. If you cake gets baked turn off the flame.
Donot open the lid for more 5 to 10 mins.
After 10 mins carefully remove the cake pan from the cooker and keep it out.
Wait for 15 mins run the knife around the cake edges. Then invert the cake pan to remove the cake.
Now your cake is ready.
