always been fascinated with Gayathri’s baking
and one day while going through her blog I saw this monthly eggless baking
event. Well it surely is interesting to know various ways to do eggless
baking. I have always baked eggless , but with restriction, I have never tried
using things like egg replacer or silken tofu. Have always wondered about
substitutes…so this was my good chance to learn.So here I am with you guys with
my first trial at this bakers den.
Lamingtons, these are a Australian dessert which tastes wonderful.I love to watch cookery shows..they are like sneak peeks during work
hours.On one of these shows I saw these, but since I hardly bake (what do you
do when you have to avoid sugar!...Butter!! and APF !!!)…so just forgot about them.When Gayathri announced this month’s challenge, I recollected that video..which was not an eggless cake..so I tried a new eggless cake...a cake baked in a pressure cooker!!..again
recipe from TV shows. Here goes the recipe….
For the cake
¼ tsp............ baking
½ tsp............ baking
¼ cup.......... sugar
¼ cup.......... condensed milk
Sift the flour, baking soda and baking pwd.
Add milk and
sifted flour, mixing gradually, till all flour is used up.
dust a cake tin.
Pour the batter in the tin, tap lightly.
Place 1 cup salt
in a pressure cooker and put it on slow fire.
cake tin inside and cover the pressure cooker with the lid..remember..to remove the whistle of the
shall be done in about 30 minutes.
inserting a needle, it should come out clean.
water with sugar.
till a little thick.
Cut the cake
into 1’’x1’’ square pieces.
Dip one by
one in the chocolate sauce.
The cake should
not be crusty, in case you feel it is getting brown cover the cake with foil,
thus reducing the heat.
If the cake
is crusty , it will not be able to absorb the sauce.
lamingtons turned out really delicious.The sponge was very soft and I was happy
with my first trial on cooker sponge cake too.
