Pressure cooker eggless sponge cake


Maida - 1/2cup
Wheat flour - 1/2 cup
Unsalted butter - 100gms
Baking powder -1
Vanilla essence -1-2tsp
Condensed milk - 400gms
Milk - 1/2cup
Salt - 1/2tsp
Dry fruits of your choice/chocolate chips (I used tutti frutti, chopped dates, raisins)


  • Take a bowl, Add butter and melt it. 
  • Add maida, wheat flour, little salt, Baking powder, Vanilla essence and Condensed milk to the melted butter.

  • Mix/Whisk the mixture well using a hand blender to make a smooth paste. If the batter is too thick, add little milk. 
  • Add dry fruits/nuts of your choice and mix well. Now, the cake batter is ready.

  • Take the aluminium tray. Grease it with 1 tsp of Oil. Add the cake batter in baking tray.

  • Here we should use the cooker big enough to hold the baking tray(I used 5 litres cooker).
  • Keep one plate/divider bowl in cooker and then place the baking tray on top of that plate(need not add any water in cooker. No need of whistle/weight and gasket).
  • Before baking the cake, we should pre-heat the cooker(without gasket and weight). Close the lid and heat the cooker on high flame for 2-3 minutes.
  • Now we can put the cake tray in the cooker. Make sure that the pan fits comfortably inside the pressure cooker without touching the sides of cooker. 
  • Close the lid and cook for 5 minutes in medium flame. Then lower the flame and cook for 30-35 minutes.

  • Use toothpick to test whether the cake is ready. Else you need to bake for another 5 minutes.

  • Use a knife to separate the cake from tray. Now, take one plate. Keep it on top the baking tray. Invert it to bring out the cake.

  • The soft and spongy eggless cake is ready.
