    Chocolate Mug Cake Using Pressure Cooker | Christmas Desserts | Christmas Recipes | New Year Recipes




    Christmas is here and all are busy attending mass, celebrating already and baking special cakes and cookies, and so was I, getting prepared for Christmas, when a humble mail from a dear reader reached me. The reader wanted to know how to make a simple chocolate mug cake for Christmas using a pressure cooker. I was not able to post anything for the past few days as I was busy with Christmas, but I can't ignore my reader's request so for her sake made it yesterday and am posting it now sorry for being so late, but I have already shared the preparation method with her.  I thought of posting my fruit cake recipe but have no time. So here is a chocolate mug cake recipe that is so easy to follow and also needs no baking tools, just a coffee mug, a pressure cooker and some handy ingredients are enough to get you a perfect tasting chocolate mug cake. There are two versions using the same cake, one is the fully baked chocolate mug cake and the other one is the gooey cake which is not fully baked but has a softer texture. The fully baked cake can be taken out of the mug and sliced into pieces whereas the gooey one cannot be taken out, but can be scooped and eaten with a spoon. The later one is more famous and loved. So here today am going to share with you both the versions, hope you love it. 


    INGREDIENTS

    Makes one chocolate mug cake 
    Total Preparation Time - 40 minutes 
    1. Cadbury's hot chocolate powder - 4 tablespoons (20 grams)
    2. Maida / All purpose flour - 4 tablespoons (20 grams)
    3. Egg - 1 
    4. Sugar - 2 tablespoons (10 grams) 
    5. Milk - 3 to 4 tablespoons 
    6. Vanilla essence - 1/4 tsp 
    7. Butter - 3 tablespoons (melted) 
    Substitutes
    • You can replace cadbury's hot chocolate powder with 2 spoons of unsweetened cocoa powder and 2 spoons of sugar. 
    Extras you will need
    1. A coffee mug - medium sized 
    2. Pressure cooker (remove the whistle or regulator from the lid, you won't need it throughout the process)



    PREPARATION METHOD

    • Preheat a pressure cooker as follows. Place a pressure cooker on flame and place a separator and close the cooker with its lid. Remove the whistle/regulator you wont need it throughout the process. (you can either close the cooker with the lid as you normally do or place the lid upside down too) 
    • Then place the cooker set up on high flame for 5 to 7 minutes. 
    preheat pressure cooker
    • Meanwhile beat the egg well and set aside. 
    • Take a bowl and add all the ingredients and mix well, then pour the beaten egg and mix well so that it forms a smooth batter. 
    • Now grease a coffee mug and pour this smooth batter into the mug.

    • Now open the pre-heated cooker and place the mug inside the cooker, on the separator and close the cooker with its lid. (do not place the whistle/regulator)
    pressure-cook-cake
    • Cook on low flame for 20 minutes or until the cake rises out of the mug as shown in the pic. The cake will rise well first and then slowly puff down.

    Look how gorgeously the cake has puffed up!!! 
    • Remove from flame and serve!!
    • You can also loosen the cake by running a knife around and tapping the cake out. Slice into pieces and serve. But if you need the gooey kinda cake follow the other preparation method with the same ingredients. Only the time varies. 
    Gooey Chocolate Mug Cake Preparation
    • Follow the same preparation method as above just reduce maida (all purpose flour to half) and also reduce the cooking time to 12 minutes. You will get the soft gooey cake. You can check in between by opening the cooker to see if the cake is done. 
    Doesn't she look like a stout chocolaty Effiel tower!!! :)

    TIP 1: I used double the quantity of all ingredients as my mug was large. 

    TIP 2: You can replace hot chocolate powder with cocoa powder and sugar as I have mentioned in the substitutes. 

    TIP 3: I have used too much of chocolate powder, which may taste bitter and I love it so, but you can reduce it according to your wish. 


    Yummilicious, soft and spongy, Chocolate mug cake, using a pressure cooker is now ready!! 




    I wanna wish my dear readers, friends and everyone out there a very Merry Christmas !!
    Let the Lord Jesus' grace shine on you all.....
    May families be blessed with happiness, peace, good health and everything needed!!!
    *************
    MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!

      1. Hey dear, you don't need baking powder, because the cake rises well even without the baking powder we are using more of eggs here which will help rise the cake. Also not too much of maida is used. So go ahead with the recipe..Hope ur kids like it :)

    27. hey Divya
      I tried this and it was a lovely recipe. I just have a doubt cause it was my first time using the P Cooker with a separator. Should we add water or not in the cooker. i did it without water but i was like "MAYBE I SHOULD ADD WATER".
      Lovely site with wonderful recipe and Yes! i bookmarked your site. :) God Bless u

      1. Hi there :) Thanks for trying this recipe.. Actually you dont need water to bake a cake in a pressure cooker.

      1. Hi Ishi :)

        You can try substituting condensed milk for eggs here, I haven't given a try but, condensed milk is used mostly to replace eggs. Try it... I will try that version and post it soon :)
