Chocolate cake is an easy cake recipe which is loved by all ages of people. This Cake an be made very easily because it doesn't require any electric beater or a stand mixer just a wire whisk is fine. In this recipe I am using yogurt as a replacement for eggs and making eggless chocolate cake recipe. I am going to bake it in both Oven and pressure cooker so that everyone can cook with ease. This is a rich soft and a fluffy cake which can be used as a base for many other cakes like layer cake, Black forest cake and can be frosted with butter cream or whipped cream frosting to make it even richer.
Lets see how to make eggless chocolate cake in pressure cooker.


Serving Size          :  12 (makes 2 cakes)

Preparation Time : 5 minutes

Baking Time :
Oven      : 30 - 35 minutes
Cooker   : 40 - 45 minutes 


Quantity Ingredients for Egg less Chocolate Cake Recipe

For Cake Batter
2 cupAll Purpose flour / Maida
3/4 cup Cocoa powder 
2 tsp Baking powder
1 tspBaking Soda
1 tsp Salt
2 cup Sugar
1.5 cup Milk
1 cup Yogurt (Curd)
1/2 cup Oil
2 tspVanilla Extract

Cooking Method

Step 1) Lets start by preheating the oven at 350 F or 175 C, before preheating the cooker lets make some small arrangements:
  • Add a layer of salt (approximately 2 cups of salt) - we can reuse the salt for future baking 
  • Then place a wire stand - to elevate the pan from touching the base .
  • Finally a perforated plate on the top and cover the cooker.
We need to preheat the cooker for 15 minutes on a medium heat without adding the Cooker weight.

Step 2) In a big mixing bowl, sift in all purpose flour, Cocoa powder, Baking powder, baking powder, salt . then add Sugar and mix well. We can also use a wire sieve for mixing everything together.

Step 3) Now lets add the wet ingredients- Milk, Yogurt, oil and vanilla extract , mix well with a wire whisk without any lumps.
Beat the yogurt nicely before adding and make sure there are not lumps.

Step 4) Divide the batter into 2 halves and transfer it to a baking pan.
This recipe yields two 9 inch pans

Baking Time:
In oven: 30 -35 minutes on 350 F / 175 C
