Hi guys..... Though I have shared many cake recipes in my blog, never shared a basic vanilla cake recipe. I'm getting so many requests from viewers to share a basic vanilla cake recipe for beginners. First I wanted to share basic vanilla cake recipe with eggs, but again I postponed that recipe for some other day and baked eggless cake for vegetarian Friends. This recipe is a basic one which you can bake this cake without oven. Yes, I'm going to share eggless vanilla cake recipe in pressure cooker. You can use this cake for pastries and can decorate with buttercream icing. You can use any flavor of essence as per your taste. But don't ask me for substitute for condensed milk, condensed milk is must in this recipe. I have another version of vanilla cake which is made with curd, will share that recipe some other day.

So, I hope you will give this a try and let me know his it turned out for you.
