Today, I tried this delicious Eggless Coconut Cake in Pressure Cooker and it turned out so yummy. The main uniqueness is its rich flavor of coconut. Many of us would have tasted Coconut Cake with rich icing on top atleast once. I personally don’t prefer Icing and also my daughters will any way remove the icing and eat only the crust. So I decided to make a plain Eggless Coconut Cake. Also some of us don’t have Oven, so I made this cake using Pressure Cooker.

In this Eggless Coconut Cake, I have used dessicated coconut, coconut milk and coconut oil to incorporate rich coconut flavor to the cake. We can make coconut flavored creamcheese frosting and decorate the cake. We can also prepare a glaze and pour it over the cake or we can use a jam spreading on top and sprinkle with sweetened coconut.

We can also make this delicious Cake in Conventional Oven. The method of making batter remains common for both pressure cooker and oven method. For Oven baking, Pre-heat the Oven at 350 deg F or 170 deg C and then bake the cake for 45-55 mins. The baking time may differ depending on the brand of oven. For me in pressure cooker, it took nearly 55 mins for the cake to bake completely. A delicious and moist Eggless Coconut Cake is a wonderful dessert for any occasion. Try my other Pressure Cooker cakes like Mawa Cake, Pistachio Cardamom Cake, Ragi Banana Cake and other Baking Recipes.

Eggless Coconut Cake in Pressure Cooker


  1. We can use sand or fine salt at the bottom of the pressure cooker before pre-heating
  2. Make sure to keep a perforated plate or a bowl inside the salt/sand layered pressure cooker. We don’t want the baking tray to touch the salt directly
  3. We can slice the baked cake and apply a layer of frosting or jam in-between the layers and also on the top

Can we replace coconut nut oil with cooking oil or butter? If yes measurements?
Also I have sweetened coconut flakes if using these should I reduce sugar quantity?
