  • 198g All-Purpose Flour
  • 2tsp Baking powder
  • 1/4tsp Baking soda
  • 1tbsp dalandan zest
  • 150g Granulated sugar
  • 1/4tsp Salt
  • 113g Buttercubed and softened
  • 2pcs medium-sized eggs
  • 1/4cup whole milk
  • 1/4cup dalandan juice
  • 1 1/2tsp vanilla extract

  • 2 1/2cups confectioners sugar
  • 3tbsp whole milk
  • 2tbsp dalandan juice
  • Parchment Paper
  • Aluminum foil
  • Twine
  • 9”-in cake pan
  1. Cut a round shape on the parchment paper and place this at the bottom of the cake pan. Grease the pan with a portion of the softened butter. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and dalandan zest. Then, in another bowl combine the milk and dalandan juice.
  3. Whisk in the butter into the bowl of flour mixture then mix in the sugar. Add the milk with the dalandan juice, vanilla, and eggs. Whisk until well-combined.
  4. Pour the batter into the cake pan. Cover the pan with aluminum foil and secure tightly. Tie the twine from its top to bottom. This would help lift up the pan off the pot later.
  5. Place the steam rack in the Instant Pot® and pour in 2 cups of water.
  6. Next, place the cake pan inside. Close the lid and set the steam release handle to the Sealing Position. Select [Pressure Cook] and [Pressure Level] to High then use the [+] or [-] buttons to set the time to 45 mins.
  7. Once done cooking, open the lid and carefully lift out the cake by the string. Remove the foil and the cake from the pan. Peel off the parchment paper and let the cake rest for 30 mins.
  8. For the glaze, whisk all the ingredients listed and pour over the dalandan cake.
  9. Garnish with candied dalandan slices on top.
