  1. Preheat the cooker with about 1.5 cups of sand for about 4 to 5 mins on high flame.
  2. Place a small hot pot stand and carefully place the cake tin over it.
  3. Remove the gasket (rubber ring) and weight (whistle) from the cooker lid and cover it. Let your cake get cooked on a low flame for about 40 to 45 minutes.
  4. To check if it’s ready, insert a toothpick or skewer (seekh stick) in the middle and check if it comes out clean. If it’s clean, your cake is perfectly baked, but if it’s sticky, then cover the lid back to the cooker and wait for a few more minutes and check again.
  5. Once it is ready, let it cool and take it out from the cooker. 
  6. Transfer it to a plate and remove the butter paper. If you haven’t used this paper, then you can use a spatula or knife to loosen your cake from the corners.
  7. Serve the sponge cake and enjoy it with your family and friends. You can also refrigerate the leftovers.

Tips on how to use the cooker for baking: 

  1. Take any 5-6 liters aluminum pressure cooker or pan with a heavy bottom as it helps in the even distribution of heat.
  2. Try to use this for baking purposes only for its durability. Since if we keep using it, the material might weaken.
  3. Remove the gasket (rubber ring) and vent weight (whistle) from the lid before using it for baking purposes.
  4. Make sure to use sea salt or sand at the bottom of the cooker as this will prevent overheating. Thus, preventing the cake from burning and the pressure cooker from damaging. While using salt, you need to cover the salt with a plate and use any ring or hot pot stand over it. This stand serves as a base for your cake tin. You can also reuse the same salt for multiple baking tasks.
  5. Avoid washing and rinsing the hot cooker soon after the baking process, as it might degrade the pressure cooker material. So, allow it to cool down naturally before using it again for other purposes.

We hope this eggless cake recipe prepared using a cooker gives you a perfect spongy cake.
