Whole Wheat Vanilla Coconut Cake | Tea Time Cake | Wholesome Treat

Coconut is commonly used as ingredients in a variety of recipes. Its white, fleshy part is used to prepare various dishes like ice cream, cookies, cakes. It is also used to make gravy for vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes. In this cake recipe, I used desiccated coconut with whole wheat flour, sugar, and milk. Desiccated coconut is crisp, snow white in color and has a sweet pleasant with a nutty flavor.

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.

Important Notes:

  • 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.
