The Badam Cake is a mildly-sweet treat with the delectable crunch of almonds. Made with yeast, this cake has a unique loaf-like texture, which gets even better with the almond flakes that regale every bite.
While almond by itself has a very nice and soothing flavour, we have used cardamom powder and vanilla essence to enhance the flavour further without ruining the characteristic taste of almonds.
Serve this soul-warming treat warm with Vanilla ice cream or whipped cream .
- Combine the plain flour and baking powder in a deep bowl, make a well in the centre, and add the 1 tsp of castor sugar, yeast and 5 to 7 tsp of milk in the depression.
- Mix all the ingredients in the depression. Keep aside for 5 minutes.
- Add the remaining castor sugar, butter, vanilla essence and cardamom powder, mix well and knead into a soft dough using approx. ¼ cup milk. Cover with a lid or damp muslin cloth and keep aside for 10 minutes.
- Dust the hands with little plain flour and knead again to make it smooth.
