1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp soda bi-carb
3/4 cup condensed milk
4 tbsp melted butter
1 tsp vanilla essence
melted butter for greasing
plain flour (maida) for dusting
  1. Sieve the plain flour, baking powder and soda bi-carb together. Keep aside.
  2. Grease a 175 mm. (7”) cake tin with melted butter, dust it with plain flour and sift to ensure uniform distribution of the flour. Shake and remove the excess flour.
  3. Combine the condensed milk, melted butter and vanilla essence in a deep bowl and mix well using a spatula.
  4. Add the sieved flour mixture and 5 tbsp of water mix gently with help of a spatula. The batter should be of dropping consistency.

  8. Invert the tin over a rack and tap sharply to unmould the cake.
  9. Keep aside to cool and use as required.
