How to make the recipe?
  1. Sift maida, corn flour, baking powder, salt and milk powder.
  2. Beat oil / butter with powdered sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. Meanwhile preheat the cooker. First place sand or sea-salt at the bottom.
  4. Place the separator over the layer of salt or sand.
  5. Now cover with the lid upside down without the rubber gasket and whistle. Place on medium heat for 10 mins before baking.
  6. Coming back to the cake add milk to the sugar-butter mixture. Manually or electrically beat until they are smooth.
  7. Fold in dry ingredients gradually with the wet mixture.
  8. Add vanilla essence.

  11. Gently place the pan with the help of tongs in the cooker over the separator.
  12. Cover the cooker with the lid minus the rubber gasket and whistle. Bake for 40-45 mins or until the skewer comes out clean.
  13. Allow the cooker to cool down and remove the pan gently. Once the cake cools down unmould the cake. Refrigerate the cake and cover with a frosting of your choice like a whipped cream and top with pineapple pieces.
  14. Slice your eggless pressure cooker cake and serve warm or chilled.
1. You could bake this cake in the oven at 180 degree Celcius for about 35 mins or until skewer comes out clean.
