The recipe misses out the fat that you have to ad a couple of cups of water to the pressure cooker pan. You may burn your cooker out if electric not stove top. Without the water underneath how are you to cook under pressure. Also cover cooking bowl with foil so the steam doesn't soggy up your pudding. Delicious but badly written recipe for beginners. It's not like your going to run out of paper. Being a chef people like full nstructions


WARNING TO NEW USERS. Cake did not cook in 30 minutes as suggested. As new to using pressure cooker, I didn't think to check water level before cooking longer. I have now ruined my silicon rack and pressure cooker. NOT HAPPY.

Made this today, was very well received by the guys at work, whipped it up in no time flat, I would reduce the sauce to 1 1/2 cups water as it was a little bit too runny. I've found with my stove top I need to add approx 5-10mins to anything I'm cooking as my cook top is quite old and a little on the slow side. Was still delicious!!!

Is the small mixing bowl not covered during the cooking process???
