The Best Cakes You Can Make In a Pressure Cooker

If you and your oven don’t get along well or if you are tired of the hassle of waiting for a cake to bake in the oven without being allowed to open the oven to check if it is burning then you should definitely try baking in a pressure cooker. Once you have the settings right for pressure cooker baking, you will never have to worry about the cake again. The cooker will prepare the cake perfect each time. Pressure cooked cakes have a similar texture to oven prepared cakes and tastes really good. Prestige pressure cooker reviews will give you a good indication of the best cookers on the market, their sizes and their features.

Chocolate cake

It is probably one of the easiest and most loved cakes to prepare. It takes about 40 minutes to cook which is slightly longer than oven baked cakes, but is well worth the extra wait if you want your cake to come out perfect.

Peanut butter cup cheesecake

This delicious cake can be decorated with simply creamy chocolate and chopped peanut butter cups for a beautiful and mouthwatering finish. It takes about 50 minutes to prepare in a pressure cooker after which you will have to refrigerate it for at least 4 hours. The cheesecake comes out perfectly each time and is far more delicious and moist than oven baked cheesecakes.

Apple crumb cake

Fruit lovers will rejoice if they know about all the fruity cakes that can be pressure cooked into perfection. This cake only takes about 20 minutes to prepare in your pressure cooker and is just as tasty hot as it is when served cold. The fact that you are adding water to your pressure cooker for a steamy cooking process causes the apple crumble cake to be moist and soft.

Blueberry cake

If you love blueberry muffins, then you will absolutely adore pressure cooked blueberry cake. Blueberry cakes have a tendency to fall flat in ovens but come out perfectly in a cooker. The cake itself has much the same texture as muffins and is extra spongy after being prepared in a slow cooker.

The down side of using a pressure cooker for cakes

The major down side is the fact that your cakes will be round because the cooker itself is round. If you are looking for odd shaped cakes, the pans will have to be small enough to fit into the cooker.
