  19. @sayantani,If u r using convectional oven then steaming optional will be there.so for that u can use normal tin.But mine is not convectional,so i used steaming pan or u can try this method also for steaming,Heat a pressure cooker with 10 cups of water inside. Place a metal mesh and keep the cake tin on it. Cover the pressure cooker without the weight. Let the cake cook for 2 hours on slow fire or till a knife inserted in it comes out clean.Hope this will helps you...

  32. This really is inspiring! I have never tried to steam bake a cake before, but the texture of this cake tells me that it may be a good method to try. Most of the fruit cakes in the US are a lot denser than this one, but I do like your lighter version. I am so glad you posted this, I have saved the recipe. It does look delicious.
