An easy recipe to make cake in cooker.
Take a 6″ round cake tin. Brush it with oil and dust with flour. Or simply line it with parchment paper. Keep it aside.
Preheat pressure cooker. For this, remove the gasket (rubber ring from the cooker lid. Lay salt in the pressure cooker and keep a stand on it. Close the lid and preheat it for 10 to 15 minutes on medium flame. (See Note 10)
Sift together flour, corn flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt at least 3 times, for better aeration, which in turn will make the cake light. (See Note 11)
In a bowl, take thick curd, oil, vanilla essence, and sugar. Beat thoroughly using a fork or wire whisk, for approx. 1 minute or till sugar dissolves.
To this, add the dry mix of flour in 2 or 3 batches.
Adjust consistency using milk.
Add vinegar. Mix lightly.(See Note 12)
Pour this cake mix into the prepared cake tin. Tap the tin, 2-3 times. This is done to release air bubbles in the cake batter if any.
Keep the cake pan in the preheated pressure cooker.Bake on low flame for 40 to 50 minutes.(See Note 13)
After about 30 minutes check if the cake is ready by inserting a toothpick. If it comes out clean then it is done. Also, touch the cake and see that it is completely dry. If you feel even little stickiness then bake for few more minutes.
After taking out of the pressure cooker, wait for 8 to 10 minutes and then loosen the sides with a butter knife. Now invert the cake tin on a wire rack and tap to remove. ( See Note 14 )
Once cooled, cut it into slices and serve
Can keep this at room temperature for 2-3 days, depending on the weather. If kept in the refrigerator, even lasts for about a week.
