Orange Cake – Baked in Cooker

I recently went visiting my parents and keeping in with my new hobby, Mom opened up a whole new world of looking up recipes on TV. Before this, I always went for the internet but a video is always clearer as it shows how the dish should turn out every step of the way and you can make adjustments right away even before trying out. Orange Cake was being showcased on TataSky Active Cooking and seemed really interesting. However, the amount of milk and orange juice added made the batter too thin. The sugar quantity mentioned turned out to be too less. Also, one really should go for fresh orange juice to get the real flavor than opting for pre-packaged ones. Orange essence also helps.


1 cup all purpose flour

½ cup ghee (unsalted butter)

1 cup sugar

2 eggs

2 tbsp baking powder

½ cup orange juice

1 tsp lemon juice

1 tsp orange zest

½ cup of milk

Mix butter, sugar and eggs. Beat till light and fluffy. Add flour. Mix in orange juice, lemon juice and orange zest. Now slowly add milk till you get the desired consistency. Pre-heat the pressure cooker. Grease the baking pan and pour the batter in it. Bake for 30-40 mins on low flame till a toothpick when inserted, comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack before serving.

  3. Hi, interesting post. I have been thinking about this issue,so thanks for sharing. I’ll definitely be coming back to your blog.

  4. hi sam, wont the batter be steamed instead of baked in a pressure cooker. wouldnt that make the cake soggy?

  5. very nice thought anju. however, there is no water in the cooker so there is no chance of the cake getting steamed and all soggy. you place the cake pan directly in the cooker so that it get baked and becomes all nice and golden because of the heat.
