Caramel Cake-Steam Cooked

Cake prepared in steamer or pressure cooker is truly handy and steam cooking cakes are great alternative when our oven doesnt work or else if we dont have ovens or even microwave ovens..After my first chocolate cake as steam cooked version, here am with my second steam cooked cake..This time i prepared this cake with store bought caramel syrup which makes the life easier when compared to the home made caramel syrup..This steamed cake was absolutely spongy, delicious and it get vanished in less time..Yep this cake goes prefect for evening snacks with a cup of coffee and y not with a beautiful frosting for a birthday party..Am sending this cake to Indrani's Spotlight-Baking Without Oven..

Caramel Cake

2cups All purpose flour
2nos Eggs
1tsp Baking powder
1/4tsp Baking Soda
1cup Sugar
3tbsp Butter
1/4cup Caramel Syrup

Beat the eggs with sugar and butter until the sugar gets dissolved, meanwhile line a baking sheet in a vessel and grease them slightly with butter..now add the caramel syrup to the egg-sugar mixture and mix well..gradually add the all purpose flour,baking soda,baking powder and mix everything well but dont overmix..

Heat two cups of water in the pressure cooker, place a plate and gently arrange the vessel with cake batter, steam cook in high flame for 5minutes and put them in simmer..Cook the cake for 30minutes in simmer (cooking time may change)...Put off the stove..

Caramel Cake

Cool the cake completely and enjoy with a cup of coffee or decorate the cake as per as u desire...
