Homemade Egg Cake(Without Using Oven) /Pressure Cooker cake

Hi Friends,

Good Wishes!Hope you all are fine.

This is my 50th post, For this special day, I wanted to post a unique recipe that can be enjoyed by the whole family. Hence I have decided to prepare a Egg Cake in a different manner - Instead of oven, I tried with pressure cooker  with the purpose of preparing cake by all the people.

This is the first time am preparing a cake and it came out very well. We thoroughly enjoyed with our family. I would suggest / recommend you all to please try at your home and let me know your feedback.

Finally, I would extend my gratitude to all my visitors, subscribers, followers and fellow bloggers for your endless support. 

Best Regards,
Rekha Madhan



Plain flour (maida) - 1 and 1/2 cup                            
Powdered sugar - 1 cup
Egg - 1
Plain butter - 1/2 cup
Baking soda - 1 teaspoon
Milk - 1 cup
Vanilla essence - 1 teaspoon

                               Cake Preparation
Mix powdered sugar and butter together and stir them pretty hard till the mixture becomes light and fluffy.    

Beat the egg very well until it becomes lighter and looks like double the original quantity. 

Add the beaten egg to sugar-butter mixture and Mix well  thoroughly.
In a bowl, add plain flour (maida) and baking powder and sieve it to avoid any lump.

Now gradually add this maida mixture, to the egg-sugar-butter batter.

As you stir the mixture, it will become dense. Add some milk in small amount to make it smooth. 

Repeat the process of adding maida and then milk as required, till batter should look fluffy and soft.

Add Vanilla essence to the batter and again blend thoroughly.

Now grease the baking tin (or cake tin) with butter.Use aluminium tine for baking and it can easily get into the pressure cooker.Pour the mixture into the greased baking tin.   

Put the sand in the pressure cooker 1/4 filled and heat the pressure cooker on high flame for 2 minutes. Lower the flame from high to low after 2 minutes.

Now put the cake tin containing the cake batter, inside the cooker.( Do not put water inside the pressure cooker)                                  
Close the cooker with cloth(use of keeping the cloth is to absorb water vapour) and put another plate over the cloth( see the below image).

Let it cook for 40 minutes, then switch off the heat. Do not open the lid immediately.

After 10 minutes open the lid to check whether the cake is done. Put a knife inside the cake to test whether the cake is completely cooked or not.

If the mixture will not stick on it, means that cake is done.
                                                   Cream Preparation                            
Butter - 1 cup

Powdered sugar - 2½ cups
Milk  -  4 tbsp(as needed)
Vanilla essence - 1tbsp


In a large bowl,blend sugar,butter and vanilla essence.Beating well after each addition.

Add milk if the mixture is too dense. Blend it well until light and fluffy. 

Cut the cake in the middle into two halves and apply the cream. After that,place the 1st half on another.Now apply the cream all over the cake.

Now decorate the cake with chocolates.                                               

Note :

The cooker wont get spoiled after baking the cake because we have used sand inside the cooker.  

Use cooker container which has big holes in it.

For Vegeterian,You can make the cake without egg. Just add 1/2 cup refined oil more.Make sure that you stir it hard, till you find air bubble in the batter.
