Can you bake on a hob stove?
Baking cakes in an OTG or a microwave oven is quite popular. But do you know that you can bake a deliciously rich and moist cake even on a hob stove? All that you need is either a pressure cooker or a deep pot. As one of the leading kitchen appliances brands, we share with you a simple vanilla cake recipe that you can try at home using a hob top gas stove:
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- ½ cup melted butter
- 2 eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla essence
- 1 ½ cups maida
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- ½ cup milk
How to prepare?
Step 1: In a mixing bowl, mix all the dry ingredients.
Step 2: In another bowl, beat in the eggs, one at a time. Use an electric hand blender for better results. Stir vanilla essence. Then add the dry ingredients and combine them using a whisk. Finally, add milk and whisk until the batter is smooth.
Step 3: Prepare a cake mould. Coat it with butter. You can also use cooking spray or even unflavoured cooking oil. Then dust some maida. Shake the mould so that all the sides are coated well with the cake. Line the pan with parchment paper. Using the parchment paper helps the cake to easily slide out.
Step 4: Carefully pour the batter into the cake mould. Using a rubber spatula scrape every bit of the batter into the mould. Gently tap the cake mould against the kitchen counter so that the batter is spread evenly.
Step 5: Place a deep pot or a pressure cooker on the hob top gas stove, pour water into the pot. Place a steamer basket or steam rack stand. Cover the lid and let the water heat for 5 minutes.
Step 6: Place the cake mould on the stand. The cake mould shouldn’t touch the water.
Step 7: Cover the pot with a lid. If you are using a pressure cooker, then use a plate or a glass lid to cover it. Let the cake cook on a medium flame for 30 minutes. Before you take the cake out, pierce a toothpick into it to check if it’s cooked properly.
Step 8: Once cooked, take out the cake carefully as the water will be too hot. Let it cool completely before transferring it to a plate. Dust the cake with powdered sugar. You can also use a stencil to give it a design.
