  • Bring just to a boil over medium heat, stirring continuously with the whisk.
  • As soon as the chocolate mixture comes to a boil, immediately pour it into the flour mixture.
  • Just light mix. If you don’t mix then also it’s fine.
  • In a 5 or 6-liter pressure cooker, spread 1 cup salt evenly. Place the cooker on a low flame.

Third mixture

  • Immediately add this mixture to the flour+chocolate mixture.

Mixing and making a cake without an oven

  • With a wired whisk mix very well. However, do not overdo the mixing.
  • Pour into the greased baking tin. gently shake the pan.
  • Place a rack or stand on the salt layer. place the cake pan on the stand.
  • Cover with a lid. The rubber gasket and the whistle should be removed.
  • Bake cake for 40 to 45 minutes on a low flame. If baking in an oven, then bake in a preheated oven at 350 degrees f (approx 177 degrees c) for 35 to 40 minutes.
  • Check with a toothpick to see if the cake is done or not. The toothpick should come out clean.
  • Remove the cake pan carefully from the pressure cooker. While the cake is still hot poke a lot of holes in it using a fork or a toothpick or a wooden skewer. Make a lot of holes as this is where the icing seeps into and they cannot be seen once the icing has been cooled.

To make the chocolate icing for a cake

  • In a saucepan, take butter, vanilla extract, brown sugar, milk, and cocoa powder.
  • Keep the pan on a low flame and with a wire whisk stir very well. The sugar should melt and the cocoa powder should dissolve. Keep on stirring continuously to get an even mixture.
  • Bring this mixture to a boil.
  • Once this icing mixture comes to a boil, then immediately pour it all over the cake. You don’t need to spread it as the icing seeps down inside the cake.
  • This cake tastes good warm also, but you cannot slice them and you can just have them directly from the pan.
  • You can also cool the cake in the fridge and then have it. Cover the pan with a lid or foil when keeping in the fridge.
