Mawa Cake

This cake is “Indianised” as it it is made with Khoya/Mawa and is so deliciously light,flavorful and tasty.Best enjoyed with a hot cup of Masala Chai on Sunday afternoons!

6 eggs

2 tsp Vanilla essence

300 gms All Purpose Flour(Maida)

2 tsp Baking Powder

Milk as required


Preheat oven to 200 deg C.Line a square 4 inch cake pan or cake molds with parchment paper.In a clean bowl beat butter and sugar till creamy.In another bowl beat the eggs till frothy.Add vanilla essence.

Now add the mawa to the butter and sugar mix and beat well with a spoon or fork till the mawa is nicely amalgamated into the mixture.

Sieve the flour and baking powder twice.Fold into the butter mix and add the frothy egg mix as well.Fold in an up and down motion till everything is mixed.Add milk as required to form a very light and aerated batter.

  • Jayashree I would say be cautious of the microwave as the recipe contains 6 eggs and is quite delicate..there is a possibility of the bottom burnt and top undercooked in a microwave..however u can try once with half the recipe and tell me..:)
    Try steaming the cake in a pressure cooker.A friend of mine did that and came up with superb results..:)
