I made cake. In my pressure cooker!!!

Recommended Posts

I couldn't sleep last night so instead of tossing and turning or watching the tube I went into the kitchen and made something. I started to go through my old cookbooks to find any fast cake that I had all the ingredients. I had enough to make a small coffee cake but the recipe was not for baking it in the oven. The original recipe says to steam over water for two hours. Nope, I didn't do that, Instead I steamed it in my pressure cooker for an hour--half the time it would take on the stove. I never made a steamed bread or cake before so this certainly qualifies for my neurotherapy--I did something I've not done before. Yeah. I'm having a slice now with a mug of coffee. Steamed Date and Nut Cake is an excellent breakfast.

Let me cut you a slice :-) The china is pretty, it belonged to my MILs best friend, Arlene. She was a piece of work--nine types of attitude and sassy all the way to her end. I loved her dearly. When Arlene passed her china came to live in my home and when I need a smile her plates are on the table.

It was not complicated to make one bit; I cannot handle a complicated recipe. I like this--making new things--it's satisfying. And this is healthy too, a little sweet, but still healthy.

That’s a smart adjustment strategy!
