Extremely light and tender, and flavored with both coconut milk and coconut oil and Dessicated Coconut.
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.
Pre-heating Pressure Cooker
Add 2 cups of salt or sand to the bottom of the pressure cooker. Keep a perforated plate upside down. Also take a flat bottomed bowl and place it upside down. We do not want the baking tray to touch the bottom of the cooker and hence using perforated plate and a bowl. Close the pressure cooker with the lid without gasket and whistle. Keep the flame in medium-high heat for 10mins for the pressure cooker to pre-heat.
