NUTMEG CAKE (NIGERIAN) BAKED IN A PRESSURE COOKER

Image
The few ingredients used here are proof that this is a very easy delicious cake to bake. I can eat this particular cake because it's not too sweet. I need to remind us that to bake in a pressure cooker, you need to remove the gasket and whistler from the pot. After discovering how much gas is saved when small cakes are baked in a pressure pot, I don't think I can go back to baking my tiny cakes in the oven. My oven consumes so much gas in those 45 minutes of baking a small cake. I'll leave that for when we bake with more than one baking pan. With a pressure pot, I make use of just one burner. That is like using just the quantity of gas needed to 

HOW TO BAKE CAKE IN A PRESSURE COOKER

Image
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. Sc…

HOW TO BAKE SIMPLE BIRTHDAY CAKE AT HOME

BAKING AND DECORATING MY FIRST BIRTHDAY CAKE EVER:
No one in my family is celebrating their birthday today. The balloons were lying down there doing nothing in the drawers so I put them to good use, lol. Well, after enjoying this cake, I just received Good News; my kids have asked that I start baking SOME OF their birthday cakes. And, to think that I never thought they'd rate my homemade birthday cakes this high. 

They all like the texture and are now telling us that the ones we order always come like sponge cake and they want something like the texture and taste of my pound cake, hehehe. Honestly, they are the ones who always requested those fluffy yummy sponge cakes each time we did order birthday cakes

Today the story is different because mummy agreed to decorate . Trust kids to forget easily. I'm feeling so good with

For the other recipe, batter was mixed for 3 minutes, here it's just 2 minutes total time mixing. 2 teaspoons vanilla essence as against the 1 teaspoon of the old recipe. The eggs I used this time weren't as large as those used for the

Pound Cake Recipe For The Learner

How to bake Nigerian cake:This no stress pound cake recipe is especially for the learner who thinks that baking is difficult. This recipe doesn't ask that you mix anything separately before adding. All you have to do is measure and pour in a large bowl. Preparation takes less than 10  minutes and your cake is put in the oven. All you need is a stand mixer because the weight is going to be much for manual mixing.
INGREDIENTS: 4 cups all purpose flour (500 grams) 2 cups sugar (500 grams) 2 cups butter ( I used 2 sachets baking margarine) (500 grams) 6 large eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla essence

Recipe: How to bake plantain cake that everyone will want to eat

Image
Plantain cakes can be baked with either ripe or unripe plantain or with a mixture of both blended together. This delicious cake was baked with ripe plantain. The process of baking this is a bit similar to baking with flour except that here you blend the plantain first of all, and ,there is no beating of eggs with margarine. Everything is added, whisked to mix very well and then poured into the baking pan. The ingredients are same cake baking ingredients, just that here there is no sugar added because ripe plantains are sweet. Baking plantain cakes is another great way of making use of ripe plantains before they go bad. Sometimes plantains get ripe all at once and aside making dodo, roasting and boiling, people can't think of other ways of serving them. With this method of cooking/baking ripe plantains, THAT is solved. This plantain cake is a balanced meal with all essential food nutrients.
INGREDIENTS FOR PLANTAIN CAKE:
5 ripe plantains5 eggs1/2 teaspoon baking powder1/2 teaspoon sa…

How to bake cake using sand in a cooking pot; No Oven

Image
I have posted a cake baked without an oven earlier on the blog. However, that cake wasn't baked using sand. The baking pan was paced directly on the pot and I don't think I'll bake like that again. Using sand and foil actually maintains the pot and is neat too. This I experimented with a small sized cake and because it turned out so great, I'll bake much bigger cakes using these method in the future becaause my oven actually consumes more gas than baking in a pot on the burners. Even when one has an oven, baking in a pot with sand really saves gas because less is consumed.

How To Bake Biscuits Like My 8 Year Old

Image
I need to learn how to bake from my girls.  Only two of the four enjoy cooking. One likes to beg others to cook for her when she's hungry, the other would rather eat cereals for lunch than cook for herself. This 8 year old is one of those kitchen loving 2. She asked for biscuits, I directed her to crackers.
Said she wanted Danish cookies and I
told her to either take my crackers or bake her cookies herself. Next thing she picked up her cookbook and entered the kitchen.
In less than 20 minutes I was called to come turn on the oven and before I said JACK, these delicious cookies were staring at me.
