I have already shared how to make plain sponge cake in cooker and today would be sharing chocolate cake in pressure cooker which has turned out soft and spongy.
It needs a basic cake tin made in alluminium and I have greased the pan with butter and floured the pan with maida.
Greasing and flouring helps in extracting the cake from the pan easily. Cake comes out easily from the pan.
When we are using an alluminium tin, these two steps that are greasing and flouring are very necessary to get a perfect cake.
Chocolate cake needs basic ingredients like maida, sugar, eggs, baking powder and vanilla extract and the main ingredient for a chocolate cake is cocoa powder.
Adding few spoons of cocoa powder gives us an amazing color and adding too much of cocoa powder makes the cake bitter. Be careful while adding cocoa powder.
This cake is made using egg and shall be sharing an eggless chocolate cake in a pressure cooker too shortly.
