Tips to make a perfect sponge in a pressure cooker

  1. Before baking, make sure to grease and dust the tin very well. 
  2. Sieving the dry ingredients are very important for the recipe. It helps making the cake light and airy.   
  3. After adding salt in the pressure cooker, make sure to preheat with the lid (without whistle) on a medium flame for atleast 5 minutes. 
  4. Once the cake batter tin has been put inside the cooker, make sure to slower the flame and cook for desired time. 
  5. Once the eggless vanilla sponge cake made in pressure cooker | Indian style eggless vanilla sponge cake using condensed milk | is done, allow it to cool slightly in the cooker itself, as the cooking process is still on. 

How to make Eggless vanilla sponge cake

  1. Preparation for eggless vanilla sponge cake made in pressure cooker | Indian style eggless vanilla sponge cake using condensed milk | Before we start making the batter for eggless vanilla sponge cake, grease a 150 mm. (6”) diameter cake tin with butter on all sides.
  2. Place paper below the cake tin and dust with plain flour to ensure uniform distribution. You can even line with a parchment paper or aluminum foil instead of dry flour.
  3. Shake and tap the tin to remove the excess flour and keep aside.
  4. Sprinkle the salt at the base of a deep pressure cooker. Salt absorbs heat from the bottom and helps in baking the cake, we do not add water as it starts steaming and forms moisture in the cake. Salt can be replaced with sand as both prevent the cooker from overheating. Make sure you fill up to 2-3 inches from the bottom. Any heavy bottomed aluminium pressure cooker works well to use as an oven for cake baking.
  5. Place a steel ring stand. It provides height and creates some space between the cake tin and salt. The bottom of the vanilla sponge cake may get burnt if you place the cake tin directly.
  6. Place a perforated plate over it. The perforated plate will help in passing the heat from bottom and help in baking the cake nicely.
  7. Cover it with a lid (with the ring on the lid but without the whistle) and heat on a medium for 5 minutes in order to maintain a temperature as in a preheated oven.

Batter for vanilla sponge cake

  1. To make the batter for eggless vanilla sponge cake made in pressure cooker | Indian style eggless vanilla sponge cake using condensed milk | place a sieve on a deep bowl and add maida.
  2. Add baking powder. Check the use-by date or else your vanilla pressure cooker cake will not rise.
  3. Add baking soda. It is important to add both baking powder and baking soda in this eggless vanilla sponge cake recipe since we are not using eggs and they act as leavening agents that help in making the vanilla sponge cake fluffy and soft.
  4. Mix well and sift everything together. Keep the dry ingredients aside. Sifting the dry ingredients helps in removing any lumps and impurities from the flour before it incorporates into the batter. It also helps in mixing all the ingredients evenly and introduces air to the cake batter.
  5. To combine wet ingredients for eggless vanilla cake, in a deep bowl take the condensed milk. In this eggless vanilla pressure cooker cake recipe, we have used condensed milk as an egg replacement that will help in keeping the cake moist. There is no need to add any extra sugar as condensed milk is sweet enough for sweetening the entire cake.
  6. Add melted butter. You can melt the butter in a microwave or on the stovetop. Just heat the butter until it is just melted and bring down to room temperature before adding. If you are planning to store this eggless vanilla sponge cake then typically, use oil instead of butter as butter solidifies after a day or so and the cake turns solid.
  7. To make the batter for pressure cooker vanilla cake, place a sieve on a deep bowl and add maida.
  8. Mix well using a spatula.
  9. Add the prepared sieved plain flour mixture.
  10. Mix it gently using a spatula.
  11. To adjust the consistency add approx. 4 to 5 tbsp of water. You may require more or less water depending on the quality of the flour to reach a dropping consistency.
  12. Mix gently with the help of a spatula. Always remember while combining dry and wet ingredients, you do not over-mix. By over-mixing, you will knock out all the air and end up with a dense sponge cake. Try to follow the cut and fold method which means cutting through the mixture with the edge of a spatula and sliding it along the bottom of the bowl and bringing it up at the side so as to lift the lower portion of the mixture and fold it over the upper portion.
  13. And our eggless vanilla sponge cake made in pressure cooker | Indian style eggless vanilla sponge cake using condensed milk | batter is ready to be cooked in a pressure cooker. Be quick and do not let the batter sit idle for too long after mixing or else the effect of baking soda will not be seen and you will get a dense sponge cake.

  4. Cover it with a lid (with the ring on the lid but without the whistle) and steam on a medium for 20 to 25 minutes or till the cake is done. Always maintain on low-medium flame and not high as the cake does not get cooked from inside and burns completely from the outside.
  5. Allow the steam to escape before opening the lid. Carefully remove it and keep aside to cool for 10 minutes. Before removing you can check the cake by inserting a toothpick in the center of the cake. If it comes out clean that means the cake is ready or else bake it for some more time.

I tried this recipe, following the exact proportions and steps, but my cake turned out bitter. I really don''t know where I went wrong. Can it be due to baking powder Or baking soda or the essence? Please guide me based on your experience.

   Hi Richa, since this Vanilla sponge cake, vanilla essence is required. You can skip adding it if not available, you can also add any other essence instead of vanilla to give the cake a taste and flavor.
