I halved the recipe as my pan was small.
- Make the cake mixture ready. You can choose any cake recipe from my recipe index.
- Use a pressure cooker which is wider than the size of the cake pan. I used my 10 litre cooker.
- Do not use non stick cooker.
- Do not put weight or gasket for the cooker. Keep the stand which comes with the cooker below . If you don’t have that can use a palte. Do not keep the cake tin directly into the cooker.
- Some people may add sand below the stand, also you can spread salt, if you don’t get sand. But i didn’t add any.
- Keep the cake mixture ready. Preheat the cooker without putting lid,in medium high flame for 5 minutes. Do not panic if smell comes.
- After 5 minutes keep in a very lowest flame possible.
- Place cake tin in the center and cover the cooker. I used my aluminum bundt pan. You can use stainless steel bowl too. Ensure it should not touch the walls of the cooker. Grease the bowl before adding the cake mixture.
- Cook till the cake gets completely cooked. It too 40 minutes for me to get it perfectly cooked. Insert a knife in the center and if it comes out clean then the cake is done. You can open the cooker after 30 minutes to check it is done or not.
- Allow it to cool completely.
- When it is completely cool invert the tin and cut the cake into slices. See the picture below of my cooker after baking.
- Eggless vanila sponge cake is ready to serve.
- Baking time depends on the size of the cooker and also the intensity of the flame.
- Do not bake like this often as the cooker may get spoilt soon.
- For this cake do not use gasket and weight for the cooker.
- Also no need to add water inside the cooker as we do normally.
