    1. Aarthi you can bake in cooker or kadhai..just put a stand for the cake and bake on low heat. Cover the cooker without the whistles and gasket. Baking in cooker and kadhai takes little longer time. Usually people add salt too but I do it without it.


      1. I am baking cake 2nd time.
        Please guide regarding baking in oven custard powder cake.
        I have Panasonic oven where we have auto menu commands.
        My question is – Can I use borosil container? Do they pose any risk in pre heating?
        And do we need low racks for baking and can the borosil containers be placed on low rack?

        Please note my first cake took 5 minues without any racks using borosil container and the result was perfect.

        Thanks for your patience.
