Here’s how to make a delicious Atta Cake, or in other words Whole Wheat Chocolate Cake, all made in a pressure cooker.
Not only this cooker cake is high in fiber, but has no added white sugar. This naturally sweet cake is a perfect snack along dish to have with a cup of tea or coffee.
Loaded with the goodness of dates, now why don’t you try it out? Oh yes, this can be added to your diet if you’re a diabetic patient, in small servings 🙂
Let’s get to it.
Making an atta cake is that easy. Now why don’t you try it out and share a virtual treat with me?
The cake is irresistibly delicious, one literally cannot judge if there is any sugar added. I agree, there is a lot of sugar in this cake in the form of dates and stevia. But that’s natural, and not refined white sugar. And you can easily decrease the amount. Stevia is optional to add, but I like the touch of bitterness it gives in this, that just spikes the sweetness 🙂
That’s all for today, Keep cooking & stay fantastic!

Red Velvet Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting - Pillowy Soft n Moist | Eggless Baking Without Oven
Flour / Maida - 1 Cup
Condensed Milk - ½ Cup
Milk - ½ Cup
Oil & Butter - 2 tbsp each
Sugar - ¼ cup
Vinegar - 1 tsp
Red food color - ½ tsp
Baking Powder - 1 tsp
Baking Soda - ½ tsp
Vanilla Essence - 1 tsp
Salt - 1½ Cups (for baking)
For Frosting : Cream Cheese - ⅔ Cup
Unsalted Butter - ¼ Cup

Powdered Sugar - 1½ Cups (Sifted twice, after measuring)
Cupcakes : For Baking in Cooker : Preheat a cooker in low-med flame for 10 minutes with 1½ cups of salt, a wire rack and a perforated plate.
For Baking in Oven : Preheat oven at 180 C for 10 minutes.
For the batter : Start by adding the oil & butter to a mixing bowl, then add the sugar and whip it. Then pour in the condensed milk, and whip it for another minute or two. Then add in the vinegar, vanilla essence and ¼ cup of milk. Mix well.
Sieve the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cocoa powder over this. Give it a mix, Then mix the red food color with the rest ¼ cup milk and add the milk to the batter.
If the color isn't accurate for you, feel free to add some other to balance. In my case, it was raspberry red, I added a couple drops of lemon yellow food color to balance the red color.
Line Cupcake tins with liners, Divide the batter into 8 cupcakes.
For Baking in Cooker : Place the cupcakes in the cooker, in mine I could place 4. Then close and bake for 15 minutes in low-medium flame. Check after 15 minutes with a toothpick, if it comes out clean its ready if not, bake for another 2-3 minutes. You can bake the rest cupcakes after this batch is baked.
For Baking in Oven : Place the cupcakes in the oven and bake for 15 minutes at 180 C. Check with toothpick.
Take the cupcakes out and let them cool completely.
For Frosting : In a bowl, add the cream cheese and butter. Beat it for a minute, then add vanilla essence and ⅓ of the powdered sugar and whip till incorporated. Then add another ⅓ and whip, and then the last addition & Whip the frosting for another 2-3 minutes. Cream cheese frosting is ready.
Add the frosting to a piping bag, then pipe the frosting in the cupcakes. Sprinkle with confectionery or cake crumbs. Enjoy!
Recipe makes 8 cupcakes. But you can sneak in and get about a tablespoon or tablespoon & half of batter from around the bowl, and bake it in tartlet mould lined with a mini size liner with the normal sized cupcakes. Then after all cupcakes cools down, you can make crumb that mini cupcake.. Rest all are extremely soft & moist making crumbs can be difficult, but that small one would be slight drier as we will be overbaking it, which would help to make crumbs for topping the cupcakes.
Treat yourself with these heavenly delights, make ’em now & enjoy these luscious red velvet cupcakes 🙂
There are times when you crave for something, and just can’t stop yourself.. Happens right?
Few days back, a sudden urge to make something with bananas & choco chips.. Just a couple hours later, made this and the taste was fantabulous.. Tweaked my Nuts Muffins Recipe, and the result was outstanding! Soft and Moist from inside with the chocolate all melting inside, with the crunch of walnuts in the out! 😀 Let’s get baking now, can’t resist.. Have to go and bake a batch now 🙂
Eggless Banana Choco Chip Muffins in Cooker ~ Soft and Moist | Eggless Baking Without Oven
Flour / Maida – 1 Cup
Sugar – ¾ Cup
Oil – ⅓ Cup
Banana – 1
Choco Chips – ¼ Cup
Milk – ½ Cup
Vinegar – 1 tsp
Baking Soda – ½ Tsp
Vanilla Essense - ½ tsp
Walnuts - Few to top (Frozen)
Salt - 1½ Cups to 2 Cups (For Baking in Cooker)
Start by heating up a cooker in medium flame, add in the 1½ cups of salt, a wire stand and a perforated plate. Cover and let it preheat. For Baking in Oven : Preheat at 200 C for 10 minutes in Bake Mode.
For making the batter, we're going to start by mixing the vinegar in the milk. keep this aside.
In a mixing bowl, add in flour, powdered sugar, baking soda and mix it. Mash a banana using a fork, then measure it, we want ½ cup of mashed banana.
Add the mashed bananas, vanilla essence and oil to the milk+vinegar mixture and mix it well.
To the dry ingredients, add in the choco chips and mix. Then pour in the wet ingredients and mix it. No hardcore mixing required, just mix it slowly and gently until everything is mixed.
Pour in the batter to Self Standing Muffins Liners till ¾ way. Top with walnuts(or choco chips) and place in the cooker and quickly cover. Bake in medium flame for 18-20 minutes. Check at 18 minutes with a toothpick, if its clean alright if not, bake for a couple mins more. Enjoy Warm! 🙂
For Baking in Oven, bake at 190 C for 18-20 mins. Enjoy Warm! 🙂
Usual Difference Between Self Standing Muffin Liners - Normal Cupcake/Muffin Liners : 1:3. This recipe will make 4 Muffins in the Self Standing ones, 12 in the normal sized. Browning in Cooker : The muffins can very well brown in the cooker, but the issue is the choco-chips/walnuts at the top can burn & smoke which can get awry. Don't worry, you can bake this in Medium-High flame for 20 minutes and you will get browned muffins. I have done that earlier in my trials, in my trials I used to top with choco chips and they would smoke, but it wont happen with walnuts. So feel free to bake in Med-High Flame for 20 minutes. 🙂 Other reason I like light colored/golden ones - The brown/darker top ones have a slight firmer top and a slight not so moist inside..
Look, look at that melting chocolate 😀 You’re going to miss a lot, I must say if you don’t try this, try it out now! 😀
I had made some Ladi Pav which were feather soft and totally amazing sometime back, and many of you liked them, tried and said its awesome!
So, Today, I’m going to show how to make some Stuffed Buns.. Well, Yesss these are with the same texture, with a surprise inside kind of feel! Delicious Vegetable Filling filled inside of these feather soft pavs is a delight! Watch the video to the see same awesome texture 🙂
Whenever, I ask my parents or my sissy what would you like to have or when someone comes and I’m in charge to make some stuff, They say “Wo stuffed wala pav..” It is such a thing that, once you have one can’t stop and keep craving for more.. Not only the texture of it, the filling is special as well! So, why wait? Let’s dig right into its recipe which is quite time consuming but is exceptionally worth the effort!
For the Stuffing : Onions : ½ Cup [Roughly Chopped]
Carrots : ¼ Cup [Roughly Chopped]
Peas : ¼ Cup [Roughly Chopped]
Corn : ¼ Cup [Roughly Chopped]
Potatoes : ¼ Cup [Roughly Chopped]
French Beans : ¼ Cup [Roughly Chopped]
Green Chili - 1 Tsp
Garlic - ½ Tsp
Kasoori Methi - 1 Tsp
Cumin Seeds - ½ Tsp
Hudson Canola Oil - Little Less than 1 Tbsp
Cumin Powder - ½ Tsp
Turmeric - ¼ Tsp
Red Chili Powder - ½ Tsp
Chat Masala - ½ Tsp
Black pepper : ¼ Tsp
Garam Masala - 1 Pinch
Sugar : ½ Tsp
Vinegar : Less than ¼ Tsp
Salt - To Taste
Start by proofing the yeast, to do so In a mixing bowl add the Warm Milk, followed by sugar. Mix really well, then add the Instant Yeast. Stir and keep aside for 10 mins in a warm spot like a turned off microwave or oven.
Add the flour, salt, milk powder in your working platform. Mix and make a well. Once the yeast mixture froths and activates add the mixture in the center of the well and mix to make a sticky, soft, paste kind of dough.
If your dough does not turn out to be a sticky, soft, paste kind of mass add more warm milk to make it so.
Once the sticky mass of pasty dough is formed, add the Hudson Canola Oil and start kneading the dough. Knead this for 15 mins, by that time this pasty dough would form into a kind of ball of dough.
Do Not add any flour or anything, just keep kneading for 15 mins.. Make sure to scrape the dough from the surface time to time.
Once kneaded, transfer to a greased bowl, cover and let it proof for One Hour or until doubled in a warm spot like a turned off microwave or oven.
For the Stuffing : In a pan, add the Hudson Canola Oil. Once hot, add the cumin seeds along with the kasoori methi.
Add the chili, garlic, onions, potatoes, beans, corn, carrot, and peas. Toss it and cook for 2 minutes.
Season it by adding the pepper, chat masala, red chili powder, garam masala, cumin powder. Stir and cook for 3-4 mins or until the veggies are about ¾ cooked.
Once the veggies are done, switch off the flame and add the vinegar, sugar and the salt. Stir and keep aside. You can add some coriander leaves chopped as well.
Once the dough is doubled in volume, take it down to your dusted working surface and knead it for a minute. Divide into 7 equal portions.
Just like you fill momos or stuff parathas, stuff the dough portions with the filling. To do so, take a portion kind of start flattening the portion and make sure the edges are thinner than the center.
Keep a good tablespoon or two of the filling, gather the edges and press to seal. Sprinkle some flour if it feels its extremely sticky, kind of roll it between your palms to make a round shape.
Grease a 6" Round Cake Tin/or a steel/aluminum container of such size with oil. Place the Stuffed Buns in there. Stuff all the dough portions like so and keep in the round cake tin.
Brush these with some milk and sprinkle some sesame seeds. Cover and let the shaped buns proof for another hour or until doubled.
Preheat your oven to 200 C.
Once the stuffed buns have proofed, brush generously with milk gently. Place inside the oven and bake for 15 Minutes at 200 C.
Take them out, brush with butter. And let them rest for a minimum of 15 mins.
Loosen the edges, and take the buns out, ENJOY 🙂
You can also make these a night before and pack as a lunch next morning 🙂 Feel free to add more or less or any veggie that you wish for. You can skip the onion and garlic if you wish to 🙂 Sometimes, the flour absorbs more moisture and sometimes less.. That is because of the protein level of the flour.. So, add the 95 milliliters of the milk at the first, if it forms into a pasty kind of dough, Great! Otherwise add more milk to make it pasty and sticky 🙂
These are literally outstandingly amazing! Jog right in your kitchen, and make these which are literally like Chatpati Veggies Filled Cotton Balls 😀
We’re in the festive mood and as the Diwali is just around the corner.. So here’s the second recipe on #FusionDiwali, Indian Sweets Fusionified..!

This does make a great gift as well, if you wish to gift something homemade.. So, here’s how to make Coconut Macaroons(Stress on that double “o” for the kind we’re going to make) using our traditional nariyal laddus 🙂
Nariyal Laddus - As Many as you like [each laddu makes 2 macaroons]
Melted Chocolate - As Required

We’ve done a lot of bakes without oven, but nothing on microwave right? Here comes our new series..
Today, Let’s cook up a scrumptious eggless chocolate cake, Homemade Style.. Along with a quick frosting.. Which is nothing but, our own low fat cream.. I mean our Amul cream whipped with hands and stabilized and flavored with chocolate.. Sounds thrilling to me atleast 😛
Eggless Chocolate Cake in Microwave(Less than 5 mins) With Hand Whipped Amul Cream
For Chocolate Cake - Milk - ¾ Cup
Vinegar - ¾ Tbsp
Vanilla Essence - ½ Tsp
Oil - 3 Tbsp
Flour - ¾ Cup
Powdered Sugar - ¾ Cup
Corn Flour - 1 Tbsp
Cocoa Powder - 2 Tbsp
Baking Soda - ½ Tsp
Oil - To Grease
For Icing - Amul Cream - 2 Packs of 200 ml.
Powdered Sugar - ¼ Cup
Dark Chocolate - 150 grams
For Assembling: Cocoa Powder - ½ Tsp
Sugar - 3 Tbsp
Cherries - 10-12
Melted Dark Chocolate - 50g
Melted White Chocolate - 50g
Dark Chocolate - For Making Shavings
White Chocolate - For Making Shavings
In a bowl, add the milk, vinegar, vanilla essence, and oil and mix well.
To a mixing bowl, add the flour, powdered sugar, corn flour, cocoa powder, baking soda and whisk to combine altogether.
Pour in the wet mixture to the dry and whisk well.
Grease a silicone cake tin / bowl of 6-7" diameter with oil. Pour the batter in.
Microwave the cake for 5 minutes. My was done in 4:30 minutes and my microwave is of 800watts. Check with a toothpick at about 4:30 if comes out clean, cake is ready. If not microwave for another 30 second.
Take the cake out and let it cool to room temperature. If you wish to serve the cake as it is without cream, you can do it warm as well.
For Icing, Refrigerate the 2 packs of cream for atleast 24 hours. DO NOT SHAKE THE PACK AT ANY POINT.
Snip the top off, and scoop out the thick cream. Usually the cream is separated in the pack like thick cream on top and whey/thin cream in the bottom on the pack. Carefully take the thick part and add to a bowl which has been kept in freezer for 15 mins.
In a bigger bowl, add some ice cubes and a little water and then place the bowl with cream. Start beating the cream to form peaks. It will take about 20 minutes to reach the thickness.
Add powdered sugar and keep aside for a moment.
Place 150g of dark chocolate in a microwave safe bowl and microwave it for 30 second, stir and repeat until completely melted.
Once melted, keep aside till it cools off to room temperature.
Add a little bit of cream to the chocolate and stir generously. Now add the chocolate mix to the cream and whip very well till its stiff enough. Refrigerate until ready to use.
For Assembling - Take a turntable/place a big plate over a bowl. Place the cake, and slice the cake into two layers, keep aside.
Mix ½ tsp cocoa, 3 tbsp sugar and 3 tbsp water and microwave for 2 mins. Let it cool to room temp.
Place one layer of the cake in the turn table, smear the syrup and then add some cream. For easier application, i added my cream to a piping bag, then piped it.
Scatter cherries, and place the another layer. Smear syrup and clot some cream and spread using a spoon for rustic homemade look!
In a piping bag, add the dark and white chocolate and just put in a spoon/fork and take out to make a marble effect. If the chocolate is too fluid and warm, it will just pour out if you snip the tip of.. So just refrigerate the piping bag for 5 mins or wait for the chocolate to get a little cold and thick before adding to the piping bag.
Snip the tip off the piping bag and pour the chocolate over the edges of the cake for that dribbling effect!
Take dark chocolate for making shavings about 50 g, and peel it using a peeler to make shavings, Similarly do it with white chocolate. Scatter this over the cake and ENJOYYYYY!
Note in Regard to the Stabilizing Amul Cream.. Make sure the cream is atleast whipped to soft peaks or thick enough as shown in video. Also make sure the chocolate is NOT warm/hot else it wont work. Cream should be cold.
I’m sorry for such a long recipe, but very easy it is.. Try it to believe! Taste is out of the world.. A pure chocolaty affair! <3 Enjoy! 🙂
Pav Buns, Ladi Pav, Dinner Rolls. Whatever you call, but making them at home is a pain isn’t it? Well, Not now..
I’ve experimented and have got bread as hard as rock to the fluffiest-moistest-spongiest-softest ones.. Tangzhong to a recipe from a baker.. So finally, here comes my perfect eggless ladi pav buns which are feather soft! 🙂
Textie Version is what you are for? Lol, here you go!
Warm the milk, Add the sugar, yeast. Mix well and keep aside for 10 minutes.
Add the maida, salt and milk powder in your kitchen platform mix well and make a well.
After 10 minutes yeast mixture should look frothy(if it does not, then throw and restart or get another brand of yeast), Add this mix to the well and make a dough. It would be on the sticky paste side. Its absolutely perfect.
Now add the butter to the sticky paste and start kneading. It will turn from sticky mass of dough to a dough that is a dough and turns to a bowl. I mean it turns to a dough, that's when the gluten is activated and it is ready will take 15 minutes of kneading for reaching that stage. Use scraper to scrape the dough that has stuck. And knead for 15 mins.
DO NOT add any thing i mean do not add any flour or any oil or anything while kneading, all the magic happens just like that. It will be not soft if you add anything while kneading.
After 15 mins of kneading, transfer this dough to a big bowl, cover and keep aside for 45 mins to one hour.
It will double in volume after one hour, take some maida dust your hands and punch down the dough. Take out and knead for one minute, if it sticks too much, sprinkle some maida. Dont add too much maida otherwise the pav would not be that soft.
Now divide this dough to 16 portions, about 30-31 grams each. Now keep one portion in your pan and with other hand roll this in circular motion to make a round shape.
Take a 8" square cake tin and grease with oil, place the shaped dough. Keep the dough portions very close touching each other. Otherwise they wont rise up, but rise sideways and become flat.
Now cover the tin with damp cloth and keep aside for another 40-45 mins.
Preheat your oven to 200C for 10 minutes.
Carefully remove the damp cloth after 30 minutes so that they dont stick to the cloth.
After 45 minutes, brush the pav gently with milk. Gently place the cake tin in the oven and bake for 15 minutes at 200 C.
If the buns dont look brown, bake for some more time. Take them out immediately and brush the top part with butter. Keep aside till they cool and ENJOY!
Now, what are you waiting for, You’ve got the perfect recipe in hands, jump right onto your kitchen and let the pavs come out 🙂
