Making a Cake Using a Pressure Cooker

That’s probably something you haven’t heard before. Cakes are usually made in an oven but what if you don’t have an oven? You can actually make a cake with a pressure cooker in just a little under an hour. We do warn you that, the texture and moisture on the cake may be slightly less than that of a cake baked in an oven but taste wise, you won’t find too much a difference.

You will need pretty much everything you would use to bake a cake in an oven from flours to egg to whatever flavoring you want and all. We won’t get into the exact ingredients but rather the method of how you can make a cake using a pressure cooker.

Making a Cake Using a Pressure Cooker

The Procedure

  1. First, you mix all the ingredients, for the base or batter of your cake. Basically the egg, sugar, and vanilla essence. You do this in a bowl and beat it until it is completely mixed together. Make sure it is thick and smooth.
  2. While you mix the batter together, you want to preheat the pressure cooker. You can preheat it at medium temperature for 5 minutes.
  3. You sift the flour into your batter now and you fold it. Basically mix it gently into the batter until it is fairly smooth.
  4. Once it is smooth, you place parchment paper in your pressure cooker. Cover the bottom of it so the batter won’t stick to it.
  5. You can now pour the batter into the cooker gently.
  6. Close the cooker’s lid and set the temperature to a medium-low.
  7. You can let it cook for about 20 minutes. To test if it has cooked properly, you can stick a toothpick in the cake. If it still needs a little time, give it about 5 minutes and check on it again.
  8. Once cooked, you can take the cake out, giving about 4 minutes to cool off once you have turned the heat off.

That’s it, you have yourself a typical sponge cake made with a pressure cooker. The overall process is quite easy and not really time-consuming. So it is quite surprising that not a lot of people use a pressure cooker to make cakes.
