  • Before making cake; Make sure that all the ingredients ( the eggs, butter and milk) are at room temperature .
  • Keep ready the pressure cooker; remove its whistle and rubber gasket.
  • Pat it dry with a towel.
  • Add a  packet of salt on the pressure cooker. Above that put a stand and put a greased baking tray on top of the stand. (grease the tray with butter and dust flour).
  • Heat the cooker on low flame just before start beating. (to get pre-heated).
  • Sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda and cocoa powder together in a bowl for three times. 
  • In a large mixing bowl add butter softened and powdered sugar, beat it well using an electric beater until creamy and light.
  • Add eggs one by one by mixing in 30 seconds of intervals, 
  • Add vanilla essence.
  • Now add the flour and milk alternatively by folding (mixing) with a ladle ( start with adding milk and ends up the mixing by adding flour  (in two or three additions)). 
  • Add the mixture quickly in to the greased baking tray.
  • Cover the lid and cooks on low flame for about 40 minutes or until a tooth pick is inserted in its center and check whether it comes out clean.
  • Remold the cake only after cools down completely.
  • Carefully cut the cake in to 3 equal circles.
  • Now add sugar syrup evenly on top of each pieces. let it rest for 15 minutes to absorb all the syrup.
  • Beat whipping cream with icing sugar and vanilla essence until fluffy and creamy (in a chilled bowl).
  • Refrigerate the cream for one hour in fridge before applying on cake.
  • In the icing tray add a tablespoon of cream.
  • Put a layer of cake on top, add some pieces of cherry on top and apply cream evenly on top.
  • Above that add another layer of cake; Repeat the process and lastly apply the remaining cream evenly all over the cake.
  • Refrigerate the cake for 45 minutes for further garnishing.
  • After that garnish on sides of the cake by carefully spreading cake crumbs or chocolate shavings (or by mixing two).
  • Garnish on top with whip cream; chocolate shavings and cherries.
  • Refrigerate the cake for three hours to set.
  • Slice it and enjoy!!!!

I used to make two cakes by dividing the above ingredients (and cut each cake in to two; use three layers for making and crumb the other one and used for garnishing on sides of cake.).  You can Bake in this way or make a large cake depends on the size of your baking tray.
