Eggless Mawa Cake in Pressure Cooker

Mawa Cake is a delicious Iranian style eggless cake made basically with mawa (evaporated milk solids), flour, butter and sugar. It is a popular Parsi style cake. Its a very conventional Tea time cake.  Those golden cakes used to have a lovely crust and a soft inside with a lot of goodness in them. They used to be made with eggs. But this is an eggless version. Also I have used pressure cooker to make this cale instead of the conventional baking in Oven. So if you don't have conventional Oven, still you can make this delicious Eggless Mawa cake in Pressure Cooker!

  7. Also add mawa+milk mixture and fold everything together gently. Add 1/2 cup of milk and fold together
  8. This cake batter will be thick and not it pouring consistency. But if you feel the batter is more thicker, you can adjust by adding milk. Add nuts and fold together
  9. Transfer this batter to the dusted cake tray. Level the batter and sprinkle slivered almonds on top. Pat the tray gently to get rid of any air bubbles. 
  10. Place this tray on the heated pressure cooker and close the cooker with lid. Keep the flame low and cook the cake for 30 mins or till the skewer comes out clean
