Hi, Can I use normal sugar instead of brown sugar. I don’t hve fresh cream or anything. Can I make this cake without cream. Or can I use yogurt instead of cream. Plz revert back.

Tarla Dalal    Hi, You can use normal castor sugar instead of brown sugar. If you do not have fresh cream add full fat milk, but start with 1/2 cup of milk and then gradually increase to adjust the consistency.
