Preparation Time:    Cooking Time:    Total Time:     Makes 1 cake (7”)
Show me for cake (7”)

Ingredients

2 tbsp cocoa powder
1 1/4 cups plain flour (maida)
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp soda bi-carb
3/4 cup condensed milk
4 tbsp melted butter
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 cup salt
1/2 tsp melted butter for greasing
plain flour (maida) for dusting

Method
    Method
  1. Grease a 175 mm. (7”) diameter cake tin with butter on all the sides. Dust it with plain flour and sift to ensure uniform distribution of the flour.
  2. Shake and tap the tin to remove the excess flour and keep aside.
  3. Sieve the plain flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and soda bi-carb in a deep bowl, mix well and keep aside.
  4. Combine the condensed milk, melted butter, vanilla essence in a deep bowl and mix well.
  5. Add the prepared sieved plain flour-cocoa mixture and approx. 6 tbsp of water and mix gently with help of a spatula.
  6. Pour the prepared cake batter into the greased and dusted tin and spread it evenly.
  7. Sprinkle the salt at the base of a pressure cooker, and place a steel ring stand and a perforated plate over it. Cover it with a lid (with the ring on the lid but without the whistle) and heat on a medium for 5 minutes.
  8. Open the lid of the pressure cooker, place the cake tin on the perforated plate. Cover it with a lid (with the ring on the lid but without the whistle) and steam on a medium for 20 to 22 minutes or till the cake is done.
  9. Allow the steam to escape before opening the lid. Keep aside to cool for 10 minutes.
  10. Invert the tin over a wire rack and tap sharply to unmould the cake or use a knife to loosen the edges of the cake.
  11. Use immediately or as required.

   We would suggest not to. The pan might warp if it is thin or the food might burn. Also, the cake might stick to the pan and not come out well.

I need the cake next day evening but cannot prepare on the same day.. So how do I store the cake so it remains soft n fresh for next day?

   Hi Hemal, You can store the cake by tightly wrapping it in plastic wrap to cover each side, don''t just cover the top, the plastic should touch all sides of the cake. Store it at room temperature. This is for unfrosted and un cut cake. Hope this helps :)

   Hi Chhavi, Since it''s a pressure cooker cake recipe, we have used 1 cup of salt. The salt goes at the bottom of the cooker and insulates it.

   I think you have over baked it.. keep a check on the flame..If you find medium flame.. too high.. then bake it in slow flame.. As the flames may differ.. Try this recipe again.. and give us your feedback.
