Bake a Cake Without Oven

Assuming you don’t have an oven, or maybe you just don’t want to use one, there are still plenty of ways to make a cake. You can make a cake without an oven by using a microwave, using a slow cooker, steaming it, or baking it in a solar oven.

Baking a cake without an oven is possible, and it can be a fun and rewarding experience. With the right ingredients and a bit of creativity, you can bake a delicious cake without even using an oven.

When it comes to cake, we all know that it is one of the most delicious desserts out there. But what we might not know is just how much we love cake. Whether it is a birthday cake, a wedding cake, or even just a simple chocolate cake, the cake has a way of making any occasion special. And that is why we believe that cake is the best dessert there is.

How To Bake A Cake Without Oven


Plain flour1 and 1/2 cup
Powdered sugar1 cup
Refined oil or plain butter1/2 cup
Baking soda1 teaspoon
Milk1 cup
Vanilla essence1 teaspoon
Baking powder1/2 teaspoon


1. Gather ingredients needed for an ordinary cake. The ingredients you are most likely to use are milk, vegetable oil and flour, butter, vanilla essence, chocolate powder (or whatever you want for your taste). But you can use egg in it if you like.

2. Mix them all up. Mix all the ingredients in a container: flour, milk, butter, chocolate powder, vanilla essence and baking powder for a simple cake.

3. Take a pan you wish to bake the cake in, dip the paper towel in vegetable oil and squeeze out the oil to grease the pan.

4. Pour the batter into the greased pan. Do not fill the container. Let the cake stand for two hours before baking.

5. Add sand to pressure cooker 1/4 full.
Put the sand in and light the flame underneath.

6. Like your oven, leave the container in the pressure cooker and let it sit for a while.

7. Keep checking the cake to see if it’s baked or not by sticking a toothpick or cake tester into the cake.

8. Carefully take out the cake and gently remove the paper from the mould using a knife. Take this cake to another container for freezing.

9. Glaze and decorate as you wish. Finally, you can share it with your friends and say that this is a cake made without an oven.

Tips To Remember

Baking a cake without an oven may seem like a daunting task, but it is quite simple. All you need is a stovetop and a few simple ingredients. Here are a few tips to remember when baking a cake without an oven:

1. Make sure your ingredients are all at room temperature before beginning to bake. Room temperature ingredients mix more easily and produce a more consistent cake.

2. Preheat your pan on the stovetop before adding any batter. This will help to prevent your cake from sticking to the pan and ensure even cooking.

3. When adding the batter to the pan, be sure to spread it evenly. Use a spatula to smooth out the top of the cake.

4. Cover the pan with a lid while the cake is baking. This will help to trap in the heat and cook the cake more evenly.

5. Check on the cake periodically to make sure it is cooking evenly. If you see any hotspots, rotate the pan to help distribute the heat more evenly.

6. Allow the cake to cool completely before removing it from the pan. This will help to prevent the cake from sticking to the pan and falling apart.

Ways To Make A Cake Without Oven

Baking a cake is a fun and rewarding experience, but it can be a bit daunting if you don’t have an oven. However, there are ways to bake a cake without an oven, and you can still enjoy the process and the result.

• One way to bake a cake without an oven is to use a microwave. You can make a cake in a microwave by using a microwave-safe mug or bowl. Simply mix your cake ingredients in the mug or bowl, and then microwave for a few minutes. The exact time will depend on your microwave and the ingredients you’re using, so start with a shorter time and then microwave in increments until the cake is cooked through.

• Another way to bake a cake without an oven is to use a slow cooker. Simply mix your cake ingredients and then place them in a slow cooker set to low. Cook for a few hours, or until the cake is cooked through. Again, the exact time will depend on your slow cooker and the ingredients you’re using.

No matter which method you choose, you can still enjoy the experience of baking a cake without an oven. These methods may take a bit longer than using an oven, but they’ll still result in a delicious cake that you can enjoy with your friends and family.


Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take for cake to bake without oven?

Place the cake tin in the centre of the preheated steam rack. Cover the steamer and bake the cake for 30 to 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the centre of the cake comes out clean. Keep the steamer on medium-high and avoid lifting the lid while the cake is cooking.

Use cleaned cans. You just need to have enough structure to keep your cupcake liners stiff enough to hold the batter but tall enough to hold the cupcake as it rises in the oven. Aluminium foil is super handy for baking and cooking.

While hand blending is very doable, if you spend enough time in the kitchen regularly, an electric blender could make a lot of sense for you. As with most things, we recommend starting small and working your way up. So start by hand blending, then switch to an electric blender when that makes sense.

Using a blender to mix cake batter can save the day if you don't have a hand mixer available. But you can't just throw all the ingredients in the blender and hit it. You can risk mixing the dough too much and activating too much gluten.

When you over-mix cake batter, the gluten in the flour can form elastic strands of gluten — resulting in a denser, chewy texture. The white batter looks more airy, while the red one looks thick and dense. You can taste the difference: the overmixed cupcakes were gummy.
