Intro: Homemade Oven for Pizza and Cakes
If you do not have Oven and love to bake, then do not despair! Try this simple Homemade Oven and enjoy the treats of your baking!
Tip no 1
You can bake cakes easily in Pressure Cooker.
Tip no 2
As the diameter of Pressure cookers is small, so Pizza cannot be baked in them. That is why I have a secret to share with you!
My daughter loves baking but we did not have Oven. So I let her use Pressure Cooker to bake a cake. But after baking, the insides of cooker turned black from burning steam and I did not like this all. Although the cakes baked in cooker are excellent to eat but they can ruin your precious cookers. And this is what I taught her to do.
Step 1: How to Bake in It? - 1
Take a large Cooking Utensil/Pot made of Steel or material like that.
Put in it an iron/steel rack.
We have two sizes.
The shallow one for cakes and higher one for pizza.
As the diameter of cooking pots is much larger than pressure cooker and more likely to have in our houses, so Pizza can be baked easily in them.
Step 2: How to Bake in It? - 2
First turn on the stove and put Cooking Pot on it, covered with Lid.
Heat it on medium flame for about 10 minutes.
When Cake/Pizza is ready to bake, first put steel rack in its center and place cake mould or pizza pan in it wearing mittens.
Cover the pot with a piece of Clean Cotton Cloth (a bit larger than pot) before covering it with lid.
Then put the lid back and fold the corners of cloth up on it.
Place something heavy on lid to prevent steam going out.
The cloth will retain the moisture and will not let the hotness out.
Step 3: How to Bake in It? - 3
Bake cake/pizza according to recipe time on medium flame for first 5-10 minutes, and then on low flame.
When taking out the Ready cake/pizza, first lift the weight off it with mittens.
Then pick up the lid and cloth.
Take out the prepared Cake/Pizza using mittens and let the oven cool.
See? So easy!
And my daughter and me have peace till this day!
