    Eggless Malai Cake in cooker reminds me of my childhood. I have lots of memories related to malai cake. My mom used to make this recipe of malai cake in a cooker for me and my sister. That was the time when the oven was a luxury in homes. She used to bake this malai cake without an oven (her old prestige cooker).

    The other reason this easy Malai cake recipe is close to my heart is that this was the first cake I baked when I was 14. Back then, I never thought that I will be sharing my Mom’s malai cake recipe with you all. Though I have made a few changes, the credit goes to her. We will learn how to make eggless malai cake just in a while.

    Time doesn’t stop. As we grow, we generally forget many of our childhood friends, food etc. I am not different. It’s been more than a year I started my blog and started sharing my baking recipes. But until now, did not remember to share my first official baked eggless cake with malai.

    Eggless malai cake recipe

    Last week when I and my son were discussing my childhood, he asked,” Did Nani (my mom) use to bake when you were small, just like now you bake for me?” This question immediately refreshed my childhood memories and this recipe of cake in pressure cooker. I called my mom, checked the recipe with her and baked this malai cake for my son.

    Sliced Malai Cake

    I couldn’t resist myself from biting it as soon as it was done. Did not wait for it to cool, sliced it and ate. I don’t have a sweet tooth but the aroma of freshly baked eggless Malai cake made me a child again. I bet, this cake will not stay even for a day on your shelf.

    PS: Use Conversion Table to convert cups into grams and vice versa

    I have used fresh malai (Fresh cream accumulated from double toned milk) for this malai cake. To start with, in a bowl mix malai, oil, and sugar. Whisk it well until sugar dissolves and you get a smooth paste. Make sure, the malai should be at room temperature.

    Malai Cake Mixture

    Once sugar dissolves, add semolina, sifted flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, milk, and vanilla essence. Mix all the ingredients evenly and let this batter rest for 5 minutes.

    Dry and Wet Ingredients for Malai Cake

    During this resting time, semolina will soak the moisture and become soft. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 180 °C. Add tutti frutti to the batter and gently fold it.

    Tutti Frutti in Malai Cake Batter

    Pour the prepared batter into a greased loaf pan. If you want, you can use butter paper as well which will help to de-mould the cake easily after baking.

    Malai Cake Batter

    Sprinkle some tutti frutti on top and tap the baking tin on counter to release the air bubbles.

    Malai Cake Batter before Baking

    Bake this in a preheated oven at 180 °C for 25 minutes or until it passes the toothpick test.

    Freshly Baked Malai Cake

    Baking time can vary depending on your Oven capacity and model. I have Morphy Richard’s 28 liter Oven. My malai cake was done in 25 minutes. Once baked, take the cake mold out from the oven and let it cool for 5 minutes before de-moulding.

    Malai cake recipe in cooker

    You can bake this cake on the gas stove in a pressure cooker. Put salt in the cooker as a base. Place one stand on it and keep the baking tin on the stand. Close the lid and remove the whistle and gasket. Let it bake on slow to medium flame for 20-25 minutes.

    Malai cake recipe in Microwave

    You can bake this on MW convection mode at 160 °C for 25 minutes.

    1. Hi Sonia thanks for sharing receipee mala cake I will like to attend your bread workshop if u r conducting in Mumbai my contact no is 9820369269

    2. Hi do you recommend using an electric handheld mixer or just simply using a wire whisk and mixing by hand is enough to incorporate air into the batter? Is the texture expected to be light and fluffy or dense? Thanks.

      • Hello Mugdha,
        – Whether to use an electric handheld mixer or simple wife whisk is an individual choice. The only difference is the amount of effort.
        – Texture will be dense because of cream.

        – Sonia

      • Hi Tarun, I am assuming you wanted to say Malai instead of Makai. In my recipe, I have clearly mentioned that the Malai is accumulated from milk. You don’t really get such Malai in any country. You will have to accumulate this yourslef.

        Regards
        Sonia

    3. Hi,
      I get fresh cream for whipping.Can I use that ?after whipping or without ?
      Also can this cake be used to make layer cake ?want to try this recipe to make a frosted cake .
      Thanks

      • Hi Chitra,
        I will not suggest using Tetra pack cream for this cake. I have not experimented myself and hence cannot suggest. My recommended cream is the one that we accumulate from the milk. Further, I do not recommend this cake for layering purposes. The cake is too moist and when you will cut it, it will break and wont be stable for you to layer and frost it.
        Sonia

      • Niji Bhatua

        I haven’t experimented with Wholewheat flour so it’s difficult for me to suggest but if you want to experiment then i can only suggest to Increase the liquid content accordingly.

        Thanks
        Sonia

    4. Hi. Just baked the cake. But it has sunk in the middle and the tutti frutti placed on top too has disappeared into the batter.?

    5. I am going to try your recipe.
      What did u use fresh Malai or fresh cream that we get in market?
      N can u pls share ur coffee n dates cake recipie as my daughter did not take dates;so can give her in this form.
      Thanks.

      • Hi Afaaf,
        The results cannot be achieved using tetra pack cream. I understand when you say getting fresh cream is tough, however there is no alternate to fresh cream.

        Sonia

    6. Hi
      This eggless tutti fruit cake looks yummy
      Have you tried making it with Amul fresh cream as you have used Malai in this recipe
      Because we don’t get Malai on the tetra packet milk overseas
      Pls comment if the similar texture results after using cream

        • Thanks Sonia for prompt reply
          It’s not possible to accumulate Malai after we boil the tetra packet milk
          Do you think my boiling milk powder to make milk would that form Malai on TOP to use

          • Hi Divisha,

            Milk powder will not help you get Malai.

            As an alternate, instead of 1 cup of malai, use 1/2 cup of cream and use just 2 tbs of oil. Rest of the ingredients and process shall remain same.

            Sonia
