How can I steam a delicious cake?

I wish to make some delicious cake real fast. I consider steaming the batter inside the pressure cooker, without the whistle for 20 minutes on high flame. Could anyone please suggest me a good batter proportion?

All the ingredients I have ever tried are: Flour "(1 & 3/4th cup)", Sugar and Butter "( 1 & 1/4th cup each)", Baking powder "(3/4th Table spoon)", 3 eggs or, 1 cup milk and 1/2 tea spoon baking soda, few drops of Vanilla Essence , and raisins.

I need some variety this Christmas. Dear friends, please suggest something!

  • Never knew you could even do that. That is very interesting. I would go to foodnetwork.com and look on there for cake steaming ideas.
