Red Velvet Cake Recipe / Cooker Cake / Eggless Baking Without Oven
 
Ingredients
  • Sifted Dry Mix : (Plain Flour / Maida - 1½ Cups, Cocoa Powder - ½ Tbsp, Baking Powder - ¾ Tsp, Baking Soda - ½ Tsp)
  • Oil - ⅓ Cup {Flavorless / I used Canola}
  • MIlk - ¾ Cup
  • Powdered Sugar - ½ Cup
  • Condensed Milk - ¾ Cup
  • Red Food Color - 1 Tsp (Powder / If using liquid adjust add upto 1½ Tsp)
  • Vanilla Essence - 1 Tsp
  • Salt - 2 Cups {For Baking}
  • For Frosting : Butter - ⅓ Cup
  • Powdered Sugar - 1½ Cups {or icing sugar}
  • Cream Cheese : ½ Cup
  • Whipping Cream - 2 Cups
  • Vanilla Essence - 1 Tsp
  • Other : Sugar Syrup - ¼ Cup (Mix 2 tb water and sugar)
Instructions
  1. For Baking in cooker, add the 2 cups salt in your idli cooker / pressure cooker and place a wire stand and a perforated plate. Cover and remove whistle if using pressure cooker. Heat in medium flame. For Baking in oven ; simply preheat your oven to 180 C.
  2. In a mixing bowl, add the oil and sugar and whip until smooth. Pour in the condensed milk and whip till fluffy and it starts leaving sides.
  3. Add half of the milk and vanilla and stir well, now add half of the sifted flour mixture and stir well.
  4. Add the remaining flour mixture and whip. To the remaining milk, add the red food color and stir, and pour in the batter and give it a good mix.
  5. Pour the batter to a 7" cake tin which is greased with butter and lined with butter paper.
  6. Tap once and place the cake tin in the cooker and cover quickly and then in medium-low flame bake for 35 -40 mins. You can also bake in a oven at 180 C for the same time.
  7. Test whether the cake is done after 35 mins with a toothpick if it comes out clean, its ready if not bake for another 3-4 mins. Once baked, take the cake out and let it come down to room temp, then freeze for 4 hours.
  8. For Frosting : In a mixing bowl, add the butter and beat till fluffy and then add a portion of powder sugar(we'll add sugar in 5 portions), whip till fluffy and creamy, then add the next portion and continue till all finishes. Make sure to scrape the sides in between.
  9. Whip for 5 minutes in high speed then add the cream cheese and vanilla essence then whip for another 3-4 minutes. Cream Cheese Frosting is ready, you can use it as it is or make it creamier and delicious-er by incorporating whipped cream to it.
  10. Whip 2 cups of whipping cream to stiff peaks, add half of it to the frosting and mix then add the remaining whipped cream and then whip the mixture till stiff. Whipped Cream Cheese Frosting is ready.
  11. Let's Assemble : Place a big plate over a couple of bowls or in a turntable place the cake and slice up the uneven top and then slice it horizontally into three layers and keep aside. Trim off brown edges if any.
  12. In the turn table, apply a little bit of cream and place the first layer of cake then smear the sugar syrup. Add a big dollop of frosting and spread.
  13. Place the second layer and repeat, then place the third layer upside down and smear syrup then take a dollop of cream in a offset spatula / any long knife / pallete knife and cover the sides of the assembled cake roughly then the top. Make sure the layer is thin, as its a crumb coat. Freeze the cake for 30 minutes, then make a good layer of the frosting in the cake as shown in the video.
  14. Powder trimmings of the cake and sprinkle over the cake. Using leftover frosting make rosettes by adding the frosting to a piping bag with star tip and then piping in circular motion. Refrigerate and enjoy. 🙂
Notes
Sad to say but my cake was a wee bit over-baked, hence some extra browning in the sides and bottom.. :/ But was extremely soft and heavenly.. 🙂
Feel free to use only the frosting or with whipped cream..
