Homemade Cake Without Oven | Sponge Cake

Sponge cake is easy to prepare and tasty to eat. Many of us want to prepare cake at home, but find it difficult because of the unavailability of an oven. But with a simple technique, we can prepare cake quickly at home without needing a regular oven or a microwave oven. All we need is a washed sand (sand without mud in it). The sand is placed in a flat tawa or a pan or a large wok, which in turn is placed over the stove. The batter for the cake will be placed in a baking tin (round wide stainless steel bowl) on top of this sand. The sand will slow down the cooking process and also spread heat evenly. For this sponge cake, I used cooking butter, eggs, sugar and maida. If we want to make an egg less cake, just add one more cup of butter. We can also prepare the batter using a blender or a hand mixer whichever is available. I'm sharing three methods of making the batter. Here are the step by step instructions.
