Preparation Time : 40 minutes
Serves : 6-8 persons

Ingredients :

Refined flour / Maida  : 2 cups

Powdered Sugar : 1 cup / Sugarfree Natura : 2 tablespoons

Milk powder : 2 tablespoons (optional)

Milk : 1 cup

Refined oil : 1 cup / Butter : 100 grams

Salt a pinch

Baking powder : 1 teaspoon

Baking soda : 1/2 teaspoon

Vanilla essence : 1 tablespoon

Cocoa powder : 2 tablespoons

Method :

In a bowl mix the oil or melted butter and milk, now slowly add shifted flour, milk powder, baking powder, baking soda and salt while stirring in clock wise motion. Add a little water if required to make a semi thick batter like a cake batter. Now add the Vanilla essence and cocoa powder, mix well.

Now grease a pressure cooker cake tin with little oil and dust with flour. You can also line the cake tin sides with paper so that un-moulding the cake becomes easy.

Place 1 cup Salt and a pressure cooker rack at the bottom of the cooker. Now cover the cooker and preheat on medium flame for 3 minutes.

Now place the cake tin in the pressure cooker and cook without whistle for about 40 minutes. Check whether a knife comes out clean and the cake is ready to be served.

Alternatively you can bake this cake at a preheated Oven for 30 minutes.Check the middle of the cake with a toothpick or knife, if it comes out clean then your cake is ready. If you think the cake is undercooked, bake it for another 5 minutes.
You can also microwave the cake using a microwave safe cake mould at HIGH for 5 minutes. The only difference is that the cake turns out beautiful brown when cooked in a pressure cooker or oven and turns out white when cooked in the microwave.

Dust the cake with a little icing sugar and serve with a cup of tea or coffee.
