Eggless Cake made in Pressure Cooker

                                                                    


Today's post is for those friends who don't have the facility of Oven /OTG yet can savour freshly baked cakes utilizing your apna pressure cooker. Followed the praline and icing method from here.


Cooking time: 40 minutes


Ingredients:
1 1/2 cup All purpose flour
1 1/2 tbsp Cocoa powder
1 cup powdered Sugar
1 cup + 1tbsp Oil
1 tsp Baking Powder
4-5 drops of Vanilla essence
1/2 cup Milk
Pinch of salt
A 6 inch aluminium vessel tin that fits into your cooker (5 Lt)


Method:
Grease and dust the cake tin with little flour. Cream oil and sugar till it is light  and fluffier. Sift the flour, cocoa, baking powder and salt in a mixing bowl. Now add this maida mixture to the batter of oil and sugar. Use folding method to prevent the trapped air in flour to escape. Add small quantity of milk at a time to the batter and blend well. Soon air bubbles will be visible now. Add vanilla essence to the batter. Pour the prepared mixture in the baking tin and rotate  the mixture so that it spreads evenly. Heat an empty pressure cooker for 5 minutes on high flame (do not put water in it).  Place the cooker separator at the bottom of the cooker. Now put the baking tin on the separator and close the lid of the pressure cooker. Remove the whistle of the lid. Keep the cooker on high flame for initial 5 minutes then on low flame and let it cook for 40 minutes. Insert a toothpick in the cake  to check. If the toothpick comes out clean it means cake is done. 


                                                                       
                                                              
 Let it cool down. Take out the cake from the tin and spread the icing on top and sides. Sprinkle the crushed praline on top and on sides as well. Cut into wedges and serve !!!


                                                                               


Butter Icing:
75 gm unsalted Butter, softened
140 Icing Sugar 
2 tbsp Milk


Method:
Mix butter and powdered sugar to a smooth paste like consistency. Add milk to make it little loose. 


Praline:
1 tbsp Butter
2 tbsp Cashewnuts 
3 tbsp Sugar


Method:
Take a pan and heat. Pour sugar in it, soon it will start melting and turn into golden color. Add nuts and butter to it. Mix well. Now pour onto a butter paper and let it cool down completely. Now crush it into tiny bits. 





                                                          
Sending this egg-less cake to following events:


1) Shabitha's Chocolaty Dreams :Virtual Party


2) Indrani's Baking Without Oven event      
            


Updated Information: Ushinish Ghosh of Cooking And Recipes has suggested a very safe and important step to prevent the damage of rubber gasket of the pressure cooker due to excessive heat. Remove the rubber gasket or ring before you start heating process.

  15. Dear Deepa
    This reminds me of old days , when we did not have any pressure cooker too, so we baked using a patila. By the way , if you heat the pressure cooker without water for long time , the gasket may get damaged. Try to put the lead without gasket. The pressure cooker normally runs at 115 deg C.
    I am not allowed to use the oven, so I can only try your method.
    Liked you comment at my Himalayan Blog...The river is not very big and it joins Ramganga which then joins the famous kali gandaki.
    Have a nice pre-weekend
