This Vanilla Sponge Cake is one of the easiest, yummiest and the simplest recipe I have ever came across. Its eggless, and needs only few ingredients which are easily available in your kitchen. Also if you do not have microwave, this is for you. You can easily bake it in a Pressure Cooker.

Lets get into some non-serious baking πŸ˜‰

Baking Essentials :

For people who are beginners in baking like me. It’s very important to get the measurement right. Some are the essential products which you will require for any type of baking are :

Measurement Cups :

Now these cups are for measuring dry or wet ingredients. These come in a set of 4. The biggest cup is of 200gms, followed by 100gms, 50gms and then 25gms.

Measurement Spoons :

These are used to measure baking soda and baking powder. When-ever you measure Baking soda and Baking powder, fill them in the spoon and then level it with your fingers so that you don’t end up adding extra.

Spatula and Oiling brush is optional.

  6. Final Steps :
  7. Take an aluminium pot or mould of your choice. Grease it with the help of oiling brush.
  8. Dust it with little maida. We just want a very thin layer of Maida, so that the batter doesn't get stick to the mould.
  9. Now Pour the mixture into the mould.
  10. Take a Pressure Cooker, put the mould inside. Cover the lid without the nozzle.
  11. Bake it on low flame for about 40-45 minutes. Keep an eye on it. Do check it in between around when 30 minutes are done.
  12. Once the cake is baked, take a knife or a toothpick. Do the knife test, if it comes clean; means the cake is ready and baked to perfection.
  13. Once cool, take it out from the Pressure cooker. Slice it down and munch it away..! Don't forget to share it with your friends, family, adosi and padosi πŸ˜‰
  14. Tadaaaa!! Easy-Peasy Cake is ready! πŸ˜€
