Egg less cake in pressure cooker

 
Making egg less cake was on my to do list from many days. Vegetarian people prefer eating egg less cakes ,so I inspired by others to bake egg less cakes. When I tried it for the first time it turned out not that good so I started searching exact proportion and key ingredient to make egg less cake spongy and fluffy as that of cake with eggs. Used curd for making egg less cake instead of eggs. Only precaution for using curd is , it tastes better if we use freshly set curd instead of sour curd.
I have set curd and used it just after it sets perfectly(6 hours after setting curd) for making cake. And curd is made up of fresh full cream milk only.
Now for making egg less cake in pressure cooker Few settings has to be done, as pressure cooker is not made for baking and over heating it may cause permanent damage to it.
Remove gasket of pressure cooker lid for making cake in it.
Add normal salt in it and keep cake tin on salt to avoid burning cake by over heating.
Don’t heat pressure cooker for very long for making cakes.
Don’t use pressure cooker often to make cakes as over heating may damage it.
This egg less cake  is very soft ,moist and tasty too .
