Eggless Vanilla Cake with Chocolate Icing n Praline

Its been pretty long time i got shifted here... I haven't got a oven for baking.... But I dont have the feel bad thing in me bcoz I got a chance to try out the Cooker Cake... I took the recipe from Ria but the icing part I did from Divya's Blog.


Mind Me it was awesome.... :)
We need :
Cooking Oil -3 tbsp, Flour-50g, Sugar-50g, Baking Soda -1tsp,Vanilla Essence- 1 tsp, milk - 1 cup

Beat oil and sugar till it melts.

Then add milk,  flour ,vanilla essence and beat till it forms a real thick batter

Pour into a prepared round tin and bake in an empty pressure cooker {without the weight} for 5 mins on high flame and then reduce the flame to medium high and bake for 20 mins. [You must place a steel ring in the bottom]

Open the lid and check it with skewer to see if the cake is done.

Take the tin out of the cooker and let it cool in tin for atleast 10 mins.

Remove the cake from the tin and let it cool completely on a wire rack..

Butter or margarine – 1/4cup

Hershey’s Cocoa – 1/3 cup

Powdered sugar – 1.5 cups

Milk – 1/4 cup

Mix butter and powdered sugar to a smooth paste like consistency.

Add milk if you need to make it a bit more thinner.

I reduced the qtty to Divya's Icing ( even though i did this i had some extra Icing which i have stored in my fridge)

Praline :
Butter-1 tbsp

Cashewnuts-2 tbsp

Sugar-3 tbsp

Caramelise sugar on a medium flame till golden brown.

Add nuts & butter to it and mix well.

Pour onto a tissue paper and let it cool completely.

Crush them into tiny bits.
Sugar Syrup - Diluted Sugar - 1/4th cup

Assembly Of the Cake:

Cut the cake horizontally into 2 or 3 {I cut it into 2} 

Pour some Sugar syrup over the Cake (say may be 3 tbsp over every slice)

Sandwich each layer with 3-4 tbsp of chocolate icing.

Sprinkle some praline in between the layers.

Spread the remaining icing on top.

Sprinkle the crushed praline on top.
