  • Step 1 Grease and line a 20cm spring form cake tin. Place the steaming rack and 1½ cups water in the Cooking Pot.
  • Step 2 In a bowl add all ingredients, beat with an electric mixer until combined then turn speed up high and beat for 2 mins until pale in colour. Place into spring form tin. Cover the spring-form tin with aluminum foil. Fold a 30 cm long piece of foil over about 3 times lengthwise to create a sling. Set the tin onto the center of the sling, lift and set into the Cooking Pot. Fold down the edges of the foil to allow room for the lid. Put on the lid making sure the Steam Release Dial is in the “Seal” (closed) position. Press the DESSERT button, adjust the pressure to HIGH, and set the time to 1½ hours. Press START/STOP.
  • Step 3 Once cooking is complete, allow the unit to have a natural pressure release of 5 minutes. Carefully remove the sling an tin out and allow to cool. Once cool, dust with icing sugar and garnish with sprigs of fresh mint.
