Baking Lemon Cake with a Pressure Cooker

Over the last weekend, I’ve experimented on baking. So far, so good. Beginner baking can be pretty easy with just two things, a mixer and a pressure cooker. Ovens still scare me a little. (Unevenly cooked mush -_-) Pressure cookers are great even if you don’t see what’s going on inside, it comes out perfectly baked.

Got good feedback on this cake, so I figured I would share the recipe.
