HOW TO BAKE CAKE IN A PRESSURE COOKER

Cake placed upside down.

To bake with a pressure cooker, you need to take off the gasket and whistle from the pressure pot. You don't want your cooker to burst from pressure.  You also need something to insulate like I did here. The lid will still click lock without the gasket and whistle. I baked this cake to save gas. I have shared recipes of cakes baked on stove top before, this is not the first time. The size of cake is so small that I felt using an oven will just consume too much gas for something this tiny. On the burner it's like cooking any other meal. This cake turned out really good. I don't know if it's the pressure cooker or the small burner I used that gave such a perfect cake, we all love it. 

All I needed to produce this was a few ingredients, some salt at the bottom to keep the pressure cooker insulated, some clean stones on the salt to enable heat go round the baking pan evenly without burning my cake. That's all. It has already been cut in pieces and kept in the fridge. School Lunch box snacks waiting...
