The texture of this choco coconut cake is a fine crumb and it is very moist. The flavor is simply wonderful, packed with coconut and cocoa, it’s a perfect cake to go with a cup of coffee. Recently, I shared vanilla coconut cake recipe with whole wheat flour. In this recipe, I just add one more ingredient that is cocoa powder and it turned out super yummy chocolate flavor cake.

Pressure Cooker Method:
Grease the baking tin with oil and dust it by sprinkling whole wheat flour over greased surface evenly. Pour the mixture into the greased baking tin.

Important Notes:

  • Use the baking tin of 6 inches in diameter, so that it can easily get into the pressure cooker.
  • Use a 5-liter pressure cooker. It should be big enough to hold the baking pan.
  • Baking Tin should be made of Aluminium.
  • If baking tin comes into direct contact with the base of the pressure cooker, it can burn ( overbake ) the cake. So use pressure cooker container which has big holes in it or any aluminum small stand.
  • No gasket and whistle are needed. Remove them before baking.
  • Don’t add water to the pressure cooker.
