Cook Time
  • 3/4cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4cup powdered sugar
  • 1/4cup yogurt
  • 1/4cup oil
  • 1/3cup mango puree
  • 1/4tsp baking soda
  • 1/2tsp baking powder+ 1/8 teapsoon
  • 1/8tsp salt
  • 1/4tsp turmeric powder
  • 1/4tsp cardamom powder
  • 2-3feet aluminium foil
  1. If using store bought mango puree, then set aside 1/2 cup of mango puree. If using fresh mangoes, peel the skin and chop the pulp and puree. I used the Manila variety mango.
  2. Sieve the APF and set aside.
  3. Grease a cake pan or the bake ware and set aside.
  1. Add the yogurt and sugar in a bowl and whisk them together. Make sure the sugar all dissolved.
  2. Now add the baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Mix them and let it sit for 5 minutes.
  3. The mixture will be emulsified now. Add the oil and mango puree and whisk again.
  4. Now add the turmeric powder and cardamom powder and mix it well. Add the APF to this wet mixture and combine gently.
  5. Make sure there aren’t any lumps. Pour this cake batter into the cake pan and spread it evenly. Tap it twice, so that the mixture settles.
  6. Fold the Aluminium foil and place the cake pan on top and wrap it to form the sling.
  7. Now add the 2 cups water in the Instant Pot and place the trivet. Carefully place the cake pan with the sling into the Instant Pot.
  8. For units that have the cake button press ‘Cake’.
  9. If you don’t have a cake setting, cook the cake in the Low-Pressure manual mode for 25 minutes.
  10. Allow the pressure to release naturally and then carefully remove the cake. Allow it to cool for 20 to 30 minutes before decorating. I did not decorate the cake. I simply served it with fresh fruits.
Recipe Notes

Adjust the sugar depending upon the sweetness of the mango. Also, instead of powdered sugar you can use regular sugar, and in that case, increase the quantity to 1/3 or 1/2 cup.
I did not cover my bake ware with aluminium foil. You can wrap it thoroughly before putting it on the sling.
You can either let the pressure release naturally or wait at least for 10 minutes before doing QPR. But do not release the pressure quickly right after the pressure cooking ends.
