    1. 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.

    1. Hello Sonia,
      you need to preheat your oven (Convection mode) before baking the cake.
      The temperature needed is 180 degree C and time required is between 20-25 minutes. If your cake always turn out to be cooked from outside and uncooked from inside then follow this rule…after baking cake for 20 minutes, cover the cake with aluminum foil and bake further for 5-8 minutes.That way the crust of the cake wont turn too brown (over cooked) and the cake will cook better from inside.Hope this helps !

  5. Hi, I tried ur eggless vanilla cake recipe yesterday. Cake came out well. But only thing which is troubling me is that the cake was quite sweet.
