  • You can put a layer of river sand inside the cooker and then keep the cake pan on it. Preheat the cooker under very low flame before cooking. Keep the cooker under very low flame. High flame can burn the outside of the cake.

  • Yes, sand helps in uniform baking of the cake and also cooker remains durable

    Apart from this when baking cake in a pressure cooker, it should not be covered pressure tight with the lid, just covering it with the lid without the rubber or with a thali( checking that not much air will escape) is the ideal way to do it

    The cooker should be preheated

    The quantity of batter should be kept in mind when determining the time to cook and the temperature.

  • 1.first mix all ingredients with beater in a bowl and place it in the cake mould which is coated with ghee.
    2.now in the pressure cooker first place sand and wait till the sand becomes hot.
    3.place the mould on the sand.
    4.wait for 20-30 minutes.
    to know whether it is prepared or not,take knife and keep it inside the cake.if something sticked to that knife,means it will take some-more time to cook.
    after cooked take from the mould and serve it.

  • add all the ingredients of cake and put in a cake mould which is coated with ghee. Place the cake mould in pressure cooker which contains sand which is preheated, put the cooker on low flame for 20-30 minutes and check whether cake is well cooked or not by a knife putting inside, if cake is well cooked then knife will be clean otherwise some wet flour will be sticked to the knife. But remember that the pressure cooker lid is not closed very tightly or don't use the cooker lid with rubber gasket otherwise the cake will be burnt outside and raw from inside.

  • Cake can be made in pressure cooker easily. As you know the ingredients, I am not telling about this. After mixing the ingredients, make ensure that the cooker is dry. Apply a little refine oil in the pan where you will place the ingredints. Then place a paper in the pan and again apply little oil i the paper. Then place the pan inside the cooker in very low flame. The whistle of the cover should be removed wwhile baking the cake. Because there should be a hole in the cover. After few minutes when the cake is more than half baked, you can turn the cake if you think necessary.
