Oven is not in every home and you would like to bake a Cake. Here is a solution to bake in Cooker. Pressure Cooker Cake can as spongy as in oven. I have a perfect Sponge Cake recipe to make in cooker.
The same texture and softness can be achieved as you get in the oven by following correct recipe with some tips.
Imagine how a Cake bakes in Oven. We have 2 set of rods(up and down) that conduct heat inside the oven and cook the cake. We are placing the cake pan in the middle to get it cooked evenly.
In the same manner we are making our Pressure Cooker as Oven. We will need the following:
- An Old Pressure Cooker without whistle and gasket.
- Stainless Steel Stand that holds heat like similar one in the pic.
- A Pan that Cake is gonna cook in.
- Sponge Cake Batter.
I baked Funfetti Butter Cake. You can make this as normal sponge Cake without adding sprinkles. But I like making it colorful.
