Baking Chocolate Cake with Nutella Frosting Using a Pressure Cooker

Baking cake with a pressure cooker is quite fun. Just the shorter waiting period and no worries of unevenly cooked cake, is taking all the stress out of baking.

For the mean time, I used my phone to take this video since it’s a bit difficult to make space in my house for a nice video setting. Cue the avalanche of things everywhere.

I tested the app “wevideo” to amateur edit this. Will talk about those video editing apps later on. For now, here’s the making of the cake video:

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.
