    Using a pressure cooker is not the proper way to bake a cake at all. Most of us would say a microwave isn't either. – Rob Nov 22 '18 at 15:10

    Pressure cookers are often used on Sailboats for baking bread & cake because of no oven. – Optionparty Nov 22 '18 at 15:52

    “A cake” is a fairly generic term for something that comes in so many different varieties. Please edit your post and explain what exactly you are trying to do. – Stephie Nov 22 '18 at 20:31
  • If you have room for a pressure cooker, you have room for a fuzzy logic rice cooker. Some come wth buttons specifically for cake. The cake comes out pretty good. When you're not baking cake or cookinr rice/oats in it, you can make killer French onion soup. – Wayfaring Stranger Nov 24 '18 at 1:57

You should pre-heat the cooker for 10 to 15 minutes and not use the rubber of cooker while baking the cake. Place your cake on some sort of steel ring or on another pot so it will not be directly heat from bottom and bake your cake on low flame for 20 to 25 minutes.It will perfectly baked.

I also bake the cake using cooker for several time and it's perfectly baked.


Baking implies the use of an oven, and a cake is almost always baked. Maybe you need to revise your ambitions according to your equipment? Pressure cooking only works for wet ingredients, and microwaving any sort of flour-based baked goods is asked to turn them into rubber, even if just reheating.


You probably can't bake a good quality, fluffy etc. cake using a pressure cooker.

Cooking cake in a pressure cooker isn't really that great of a way to make cake, usually the pressure forces the cake to become dense and very solid. Most cake (not all: dense cakes like pound cake may work) are going to be nearly impossible to replicate "properly" in that environment.

In regards to microwaving cake, that's also not a good way to make most cakes, typically cakes come out spongy and very resistant in microwave but at least they are still much more fluffy than a pressure cooker's.

You could try: Steaming or making a mini oven out of foil etc. would be best for a cake if you can't use an oven.
