Steam Cooked Chocolate Cake

After trying out a simple and quick chocolate cake as vegan version through microwave oven, i went this time for steam cooked version but not as vegan version, i used this time some eggs, yogurt and oil instead of butter..I tried making this steam cooked cake for the first time at home and they turned out very moist and soft eventhough the cooking process goes for approximately 45minutes in simmer..This cake was extremely delicious when served even after a day also super yummy along with a scoop of vanilla icecream, While making this cake i realized that greased vessel doesnt help us much coz i had a hard time for removing my cake from the vessel,next time if i'll make this cake in vessels, i'll be definitely using baking sheet or parchement sheet for easy moulding..Sending this cake to No Bake Cake Event and to Pari's Only Kid's Delight...

Steam Cooked Chocolate Cake


3cups All purpose flour
2cups Sugar
3nos Eggs
1cup Yogurt
1cup Canola oil
150grms Dark chocolate bar
1tsp Baking powder
1/4tsp Baking soda

Mix together the all purpose flour, baking powder and baking soda and keep aside..Beat together the eggs and sugar until it turns pale and smooth, now add the yogurt and oil ,beat everything again for a while..now add the flours , stir everything well and dont overmix.Meanwhile melt the chocolate bar with few water in microwave oven for 4minutes,slowly mix this melted chocolate to the wet ingredients and mix for a while, now gradually add the dry ingredients and mix until everything get well mixed..Line a baking sheet in a greased vessel, pour this cake mixture..meanwhile heat two cups of water in pressure cooker, arrange the vessel, close the cooker with a lid, steam cook in high heat for 5minutes and put the flame in simmer...Cook for 40 minutes (check the water level in between)..Mine took 40minutes to get cooked, sometimes the cooking hour may change..

Let the cake get cooled completely and enjoy with icecream...i went for some confectioner's sugar and almond flakes to decorate my cake..

Cake looks so good Priya !!! Super cool way of doing it. I'm really curious on how will you place the vessel in the pressure cooker. Will it float ;-).
