Vanilla sponge cake in pressure cooker

Hi all. after I came back from office today, I was having a great desire to eat cake. I was missing my home because i don't have an oven to bake the cake but then i thought to make it in the cooker  and worked and it ws the best cake i've ever made...I'm going to share this recipe wiith you all.

Refined flour(maida): 2 cups
Powdered sugar: 2 cups
Vanilla essence: 5-6 drops
Egg: 3
Unsalted butter: 150 gm
Dryfruits(mixed chopped): 1/2 cup
Salt: 1/2 tsp
Baking powder: 2 tsp

Preparation time: 45 mins
Cooking time: 40 mins

Sieve the flour with baking powder and salt 5 times. Seperate egg yolk and white. Beat them seperately till it becomes fluffy. Mix butter and powdered sugar and beat them thoroughly.Now mix egg white first into the butter mixture and add vanilla essence and beat again. Then mix the egg yolk and beat again till the mixture becomes soft. Now add the flour in the mixture while beating continuously. Keep beating in the same direction for 8-20 minutes.
Greas the cake tin with butter. Place the cooker on high flame and spread two cups of salt into it.
The idea of using salt is to avoid a direct contact of the cake tin with the flame. Take sufficient amount of salt so that it'll cover the cooker's bottom properly. cover the lid upside down and heat he cooker on high flame for 2 minutes.

Now sim the flame to the lowest. Place the cake mixture into the cake tin and place the tin into the cooker. Cover it with lid and remove the whistle. Cook for 35 minutes on lowest flame.

Open the cooker after 35 minutes. Do the knife test to check whether the cake has been cooked. Take out the cake tin and turn it upside down on a serving plate. The cake will come out. Let it get cooled in the fridge and decorate it with your favourite icing and serve.

1. Whenver you beat the batter, beat it in one direction only.
2. You can also use coarse sand instead of salt for baking the cake but using salt is a more easy option.
3. you can make any kind of cake in the cooker by this method. just prepare the batter of different flavours and enjoy the homemade cake any time.
