How to Bake a Cake without an Oven

Yes, it is possible to bake a perfectly soft and spongy cake WITHOUT an oven!

How many times have you looked at a delectable, melt-in-the-mouth kind of cake recipe and longed to make it at home? But unfortunately, you don't have an oven. Well, don’t get disheartened. Here’s an easy alternative for you and all you need is a pressure cooker!

To begin with, take your pressure cooker and fill it with some water (about 2-3 inches deep). Place a ring at the base of the pressure cooker. Make sure that you select a ring that is smaller in size than your cake mould. Fill the cake mould with batter and place it on the ring. Ensure that there is enough space around the cake mould to allow the air to flow around evenly. This is important for uniform baking. 

The next step is to simply put the lid on the pressure cooker without locking it. Let the baking happen on a medium flame.
