Preparation Time:    Cooking Time:     Makes 1 cake (7”)
Show me for cake (7”)


2 tbsp cocoa powder
1 1/4 cups plain flour (maida)
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp soda bi-carb
3/4 cup condensed milk
4 tbsp melted butter
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 cup salt
1/2 tsp melted butter for greasing
plain flour (maida) for dusting

  1. Grease a 175 mm. (7”) diameter cake tin with butter on all the sides. Dust it with plain flour and sift to ensure uniform distribution of the flour.
  2. Shake and tap the tin to remove the excess flour and keep aside.
  3. Sieve the plain flour, cocoa powder, baking powder and soda bi-carb in a deep bowl, mix well and keep aside.
  4. Combine the condensed milk, melted butter, vanilla essence in a deep bowl and mix well.
  5. Add the prepared sieved plain flour-cocoa mixture and approx. 6 tbsp of water and mix gently with help of a spatula.
  6. Pour the prepared cake batter into the greased and dusted tin and spread it evenly.
  7. Sprinkle the salt at the base of a pressure cooker, and place a steel ring stand and a perforated plate over it. Cover it with a lid (with the ring on the lid but without the whistle) and heat on a medium for 5 minutes.
  8. Open the lid of the pressure cooker, place the cake tin on the perforated plate. Cover it with a lid (with the ring on the lid but without the whistle) and steam on a medium for 20 to 22 minutes or till the cake is done.
  9. Allow the steam to escape before opening the lid. Keep aside to cool for 10 minutes.
  10. Invert the tin over a wire rack and tap sharply to unmould the cake or use a knife to loosen the edges of the cake.
  11. Use immediately or as required.

I was always looking for a chocolate sponge cake recipe which can be made in a pressure cooker. As i dont have an oven at my place, i was unable to follow most of the recipes. I tried this recipe in my kitchen and it came out excellent. The colour, texture and taste everything is just up to the mark. It is spongy and delicious. A wonderful recipe..

I tried this recipe of yours, however i added in 4 tbsp of yogurt to it and instead of plain flour, i used atta flour because i ran out of plain flour. the cake turned out great! this recipe is definitely a keeper.
