June 29, 2012 Motions and Emotions 10 Comments

Earlier there was no OTG or microwave however our moms & grand-moms used to make yummy cakes. Some had traditional cake making electric oven but most of them used to make cake in cooker. My mother was not exceptional. She used prepare soft and spongy cake in cooker. Today I am going to share an easy recipe of a yummy cake which can be made in a cooker. This recipe I have learned from my mom. No need of Oven. Make the yummy cake and give surprise to your nearest and dearest one. Here learn how to prepare a cake without oven.

Cooker cake

Maida (Flour) -11/ 2 cup
Salt - 1/4 teaspoon
Milk - 1/2 cup (use as required)
Sugar - 3/4 cup
Refined oil - 1/2 cup
Baking powder - 1 tesapoon (If baking powder is old put little more)
Eggs - 2, large
Vanilla - 1 teaspoon 
Unsalted Butter - 50 gms (If Unsalted butter is not available use regular butter and don't add salt separately)


1. At first take maida in a mixing bowl and add salt & the baking powder and mix it thoroughly.
2.Take melted butter, refined oil and sugar in a bowl and stir it until it dissolves.
3. Now add the maida mixture slowly into this pan and keep on stirring it, so that there should not be any lump in the mixture.
4. After that add the eggs one after another. Beat well. 
5. Now add vanilla flavour and mix it properly. (You can also try rose or butterscotch flavour).
6. Add little quantity milk and fold it again until you get a smooth batter consistency.
7. Now take a aluminum bowl which can go inside your pressure cooker. Grease the bowl with little oil and fix the butter paper inside the bowl.
8. Then, pour the mixture into the bowl slowly. Leave one inch gap from the edge so that your cake can get the space to increase in size.
9. Now keep a steel stand inside your cooker and place the bowl on it. After that close the lid of the cooker and place it on gas in slow heat. Do not use the socket and whistle of the cooker.

10. It will take almost 30 -40 mins. In between you open the lid and check with knife whether your cake is ready or not. If your knife comes out easily that means your cake is ready. Now open the lid and keep it on gas for 5 mins.
11. Keep it for cooling and then take out the bowl and the cake will come out easily.
