Cut the pineapple chunks up and pop on top of the syrup. 5. Pour the batter out onto the pineapple and syrup base and level off. 6. Cover with lightly greased foil and then baking paper. Secure with a piece of string. 7. Add 2 cups of cold water to the pressure cooker. Lower the cake in. Cook on high pressure for 27 minutes. Fast release the pressure. 8.
