Easy Marble Cake with Chocolate Ganache Frosting | How to make Chocolate Cake without an Oven

Easy Marble Cake with Chocolate Ganache Frosting | Chocolate Cake without an Oven is an old-fashioned fusion cake loaded with vanilla and chocolate flavors.

This is a simple, eggless pastry that is baked without an oven and is full of delectable flavors that explode in one’s mouth.

Tender vanilla and fudgy chocolate swirls make this dessert a flavor-packed one. We produce two flavors in one cake with a single batter; there is no need to prepare separate batters.

It is an eggless version where we use a mixture of curd and baking soda instead of eggs to give the batter its structure and solidity.

I enjoy preparing cakes, especially in a pressure cooker, since the aroma permeates the entire kitchen and makes it seem wonderful and real. Baking on a stovetop is the most traditional way of making a cake. Wherein we first coat the cooker with a layer of salt or sand approximately 250 gms thick, then set the tin on the stand and bake.

Baking is such an art that even a newbie learns to enjoy the process of it. There are three steps to making this pastry: To begin, combine all of the wet ingredients with the dry components in a mixing bowl. Then we split them in half and add chocolate powder to one and vanilla extract to the other.

Secondly, we bake it in the pressure cooker for 25-30 minutes on low heat, or until it is fully cooked and elevated.

Finally, we make the ganache and frosting by pouring hot cream over the chocolate and letting it cool. The cake is then iced and embellished with additions such as choco chips, chopped chocolate, gems, or sprinkles.
