      dear lavanya..
      i have done this cake in pressure cooker only it came out very nicely. definitely u can try out this. make preparations as nita mam gave here. place the empty pressure cooker on the stove with medium heat then sprinkle some baking soda in the cooker to avoid spoiling of cooker and to avoid the smell also. the place an empty pot(which comes with ur cooker) on the top of the empty pot u can place the cake tin which is having batter. for 5 min maintain the same heat.. afterwards turn the burner into low heat(not very low) cook for 35 mins. then u can check the cake as mam told. believe me it comes good. i have tried 3 times. perfect. all the best. try it.
