Pressure Cooker Method:
Grease the baking tin with oil and dust it by sprinkling whole wheat flour over greased surface evenly. Pour the mixture into the greased baking tin.
- Use the baking tin of 6 inches in diameter, so that it can easily get into the pressure cooker.
- Use a 5-liter pressure cooker. It should be big enough to hold the baking pan.
- Baking Tin should be made of Aluminium.
- If baking tin comes into direct contact with the base of the pressure cooker, it can burn ( overbake ) the cake. So use pressure cooker container which has big holes in it or any aluminum small stand.
- No gasket and whistle are needed. Remove them before baking.
- Don’t add water to the pressure cooker.
How to Bake In A Pressure Cooker?
- Heat the pressure cooker on high heat for 2 minutes. Use sea salt or sand as a layer inside a cooker. Put a steel stand on a layer of salt or sand.
- Now put the cake tin containing the cake batter ( Do not put water inside the pressure cooker).
- Close the pressure cooker lid and do not put the whistle on the lid. Remove the gasket (rubber ring) from the lid.
- Lower the flame after 2 minutes. Let it bake for 50 -60 minutes on low flame. After 60 minutes check cake with a knife, if the mixture does not stick, it means the cake is done.
- If batter still sticks to knife then again bake for another 10 minutes. Do not open the lid immediately.
- Eggless Pressure Choco Coffee Cooker Cake is ready.
- Let cool down the cake completely.
- Cut the cake into two layers from the middle using knife or thread.
- Place the one layer of cake on the cake board and spread the chocolate frosting using a spatula and place the second layer of cake over the first.
- Spread the remaining frosting over the second layer and the sides of the cake.
- Split the Kit Kat’s and start sticking Kit Kat around the cake( leave very little space between chocolate), pressing gently into the chocolate frosting.
Wrap a ribbon around the cake to secure the Kit Kat’s and fill the top of the cake with gems.
Keep the cake in the refrigerator for 2 hours.
