Grease your baking tray and dust some all purpose flour over it.
Next transfer the batter to the dusted baking tin.
Place the baking tin inside the preheated cooker and cook on a low flame for around 15- 20 minutes.

To check if it done, take a toothpick and pierce it through the cake.
If it comes out clean then cake is ready.
Remove from baking tin and let it cool .
