Fool Proof Baking Without Oven Or Pressure Cooker

Fool Proof Baking Without Oven Or Pressure Cooker

You so much want to bake your own cake? and dont have an oven? Then this post is just for you you and you!!




Since Christmas is around I felt this is the right time to make a post on this topic. And Also my lovely friend Noaf was insisting me to show her this method. When I was late to make a post, she finally said Aara U love everyone and not me, U dont show any love to me hehe Well so Dear Noaf I love as much As I love everyone :P So this post Specially for You!!

Here Im not using pressure cooker, neither the most famous stone oven, or sand oven! Its just so very simple that even If u have an oven you might want to try out in stove top just for sake to knowing the result! Oh ok may be its too much to praise this method but honestly a boon for ones who want to bake. 

Before When I used to see pics of cake and recipe I would just neglect because NO OVEN!! no idea how to make cake without oven, and I just kept avoiding! some of my online frnds kept saying me about baking without oven and still I dint pay heads! until last year when I decided to bake without oven. But before that I made lots of research over this subject and finally decided to jump. This is my 1st attempt and result!!


                       Eggless Chocolate Moist Cake!


You My 2nd attempt was Eggless Yogurt Brownie 



 Then It was Mango Banana Cake


Next was Dense Dark Chocolate Brownie
All of them tasted absolute delicious! Let it be brownie or cake It was just awesome 

So here Things we need to do the baking is:
- A Round pot big enough to place the cake tin
- A well pack lid for the pot
- A small ring/ separator to hold the cake tin

Lets prepare our own oven 

Starting by pre heating the oven.
- Keep the pot over stove, place the ring in center and close the lid of the pot, In low heat let it pre heat for 10 mins or till your cake mould is ready to go in!! 



- By this time our oven is ready.... Be careful, use a hand glove or a thick variety of towel while handling things.



- Open the lid and place the cake tin inside carefully enough that ur hand skin dont touch anywhere the pot, its quiet hot! Do not tilt also, cake batter may get disturbed! so make sure u get a big enough pot to bake.


Close the lid and increase the flame to high so that the heat which has escaped while the lid is open retain back. Again put down the heat to medium low and bake for the time till required

- It is suggested not to disturb the baking time by opening the lid again and again to check But honestly I myself get excited to check if its baking or not! 

- So the tip is when ever u open the lid, and put back after checking, increase the flame for 1 min, so that it restore the lost heat inside the oven and get back to low medium heat.

- Baking time may vary according to the density of batter and also the kind of pot we are using! If it is heavy pot, it might take time, But I have always used thinner variety of aluminium or indolium. So my baking time would be exact as that of baking time taken in oven with Celsius degree.

- It is always gud to check by inserting a sekwer to check if the cake is done! if its not done! you can always extend your baking time to 5- 10 mins or more 

- Do not leave the cake inside the pot unless the recipe calls for, Some times over exposure to heat may make the cake texture dry. 


This cake show above was baked a month back at my aunts place in Nagpur. She had a ready made cake mix pack of milkmaid creations and wanted me to bake in cooker! But she had small cooker where the cake tin couldnt be placed. So I came up with my own method of baking and you can see the pic above! 


I have darken the pic shade to show the sponginess of the cake fluffy and porous  result It gave :)


At home I use this pot and this kind of lid which packs well at the Rim of the pot!

Since all of us must be having big pots at home, its easy to bake now isnt it?

Notes:
- Always keep in mind the size of tin and pot to be used! before you start preparation Check out if you can place the cake tin inside the pot easily or not! 
- If u feel anywhere there is gap between lid and rim or its loosely pack! always keep a weight on top of the lid!
- Make sure you follow the instructions for making cake properly :)
- You can use any type of ring as separator as long as It can hold the cake mould/ tin
- I had also made pizza using this method


If there is anymore quires Do feel free to ask me :)

All the best if you try this way!

Do let me know how it turned out!!

    1. Hello striji yes this is a wonderful question I forgot to write about in notes!
      I forgot to take pic before starting baking in the pot, The pic ur seeing now is after baking, so it will give u little bit of spots after baking that too incase if there is any moisture in the pot, Otherwise you will get back ur vessel clean and safe. If there is any spots at all, it will go as we wash the pot, and since the whole process is done in low heat, nothing will happen to the pot! You see my pot in the pic is still sound and safe after so many baking :)

  29. I love baking,missing out on baking since a year as we have to much of power failure and with Hawkins cooker it was impossible baking in Kerala.I was wondering regarding the baking techniques of the past centuries when electricity wasn't invented.I surfed a lot and accidentally landed here.Here in Kerala I we use Chackson's rice cooker which is completely packed.Can I try baking in that.

    1. Hello Lisa Thanks for stopping by!!
      And sorry for the late response as I'm unable to be active at blogging hopefully soon I would :)
      You can use any cooker to bake a cake in regards it is broad mouthed as we need to fit in the cake tin inside a pre-heated cooker, so chances for hand burns are more if u dont have sufficient space to place the tin and take out.
      Does not need that you should use only cooker, you can use and broad pots of aluminium available with you with a proper lid fitting in which you make biriyani. its not something you need to be worried about just try once and you will know. If done rightly you will get a perfect cake without doubts but in anything goes wrong still you'll be able to figure it out and correct it in second try. I did the same in initial days till I figured out how to make it right :)
      All the best
