However, if you are a frequent baker, I would advise you to invest in an oven. Baking cakes in pressure cooker is not the best thing to do. In this blog you will find step by step instructions on how to make cake in cooker?

Cooker Cake Recipe- Ingredients required:

All-purpose flour (maida): The pressure cooker cake has been prepared using all-purpose flour. I have yet to try this recipe with whole wheat flour.

Sugar: Powdered sugar has been used. 1 cup of powdered sugar is required. Make sure to measure 1 cup powdered sugar; do not take 1 cup granulated sugar.

Fat: Oil has been used in this recipe. Oil makes the cake moister.

Leavening agents:  Baking soda and baking powder have been used. You can use fruit salt such as Eno instead of baking soda if you do not like the soapy flavor of the baking soda.

Flavoring agents: Vanilla essence and salt have been used to give flavor to the pressure cooker cake. You can add nuts or chocolate chips or other flavors of your choice.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
