dear ayaz,you can bake a cake using a patilla(cooking vessel).It should be of alumuniium and having a thick base.Pour the cake mixture in it and put it on a tava on low heat on the gas. Cover this patilla and if possible put another tava on the cover or a heavy thing to prevent the heat from escaping.Rememberr the gas should be completely low. you can easily bake a cake like this.try and then let me know.

It was a good recipe. The cake was really soft. There were some flaws though. This recipe serves 12-15 and not 4. In the ingredients you have written Baking soda and in the recipe u have written baking powder. It was confusing for me to figure out. I used Baking powder though. It was very time consuming too. But the results were good.
