As soon as i posted my microwave cake recipe, i got tons and tons of request from you all to post cooker cake. I was not scared to try it, because I have made a cakes in cooker before..It was years back when i dont own a oven. I learned the trick from my perimma, she told me to put sand in the bottom of the cooker and bake cakes in it. This way the sand heats up and acts as a oven.
Actually i baked lots and lots of cakes using pressure cooker before, therefore i dedicated a separate pressure cooker for it. I left the cooker in my mom's place. As i got lots of request from my readers i took the cooker from my mom place and baked a cake instantly.
Now coming to the recipe. This is a simple cake recipe. You need only a bowl and a wooden spoon or electric beater. This cake is so spongy and taste yummy. I added some chocolate chips for extra taste, you could add some tutti fruity too..So try this for christmas and let me know how it turns out for you..
