Pressure Cooker Method
Grease the baking tin with oil and dust it by sprinkling whole wheat flour over greased surface evenly. Pour the mixture into the greased baking tin.
a) Use the baking tin of 6 inches in diameter, so that it can easily get into the pressure cooker.
b) Use a 5-liter pressure cooker. It should be big enough to hold the baking pan.
Baking Tin should be made of Aluminium.
c) If baking tin comes into direct contact with the base of the pressure cooker, it can burn ( overbake ) the cake. So use pressure cooker container which has big holes in it or any aluminum small stand.
d) No gasket and whistle are needed. Remove them before baking.
e) Don’t add water to the pressure cooker.
How to Bake In A Pressure Cooker?
a) Heat the pressure cooker on high heat for 2 minutes. Use sea salt or sand as a layer inside a cooker. Put a steel stand on a layer of salt or sand.
b)Now put the cake tin containing the cake batter ( Do not put water inside the pressure cooker).
c) Close the pressure cooker lid and do not put the whistle on the lid. Remove the gasket (rubber ring) from the lid.
d) Lower the flame after 2 minutes. Let it bake for 50 -60 minutes on low flame. After 60 minutes check cake with a knife, if the mixture does not stick, it means the cake is done.
e) If batter still sticks to knife then again bake for another 10 minutes. Do not open the lid immediately.
