Making of Milk Cake

March 23rd, 2011 filed under News and Updates

One of my favorites sweet is called Milk Cake. This is an exotic and traditional dessert. Milk Cake is made with a few ingredients: milk, sugar and lightly flavored with cardamom. With so few ingredients it sounds like an easy recipe. There are many short cuts that I have tried for this recipe but none of them work to my satisfaction. One good thing about Milk Cake is that the ingredients should be easily available where ever you are.

I was quite happy with my original recipe, as it tastes great but it doesn’t have the right color. Milk Cake has three color sections: the top third is a creamy color, the bottom third is a light brown color, and the center is darker than the bottom. In the market the cake is about 3 to 4 inch thick so it can be sliced as cake. Normally, I will only make the cake an inch thick since I am not preparing it in large quantities. Alex for first time is saying that I should forget about the color and let’s shoot the video. In mean time, I found a recipe on Google which looked really good because it has solution to the color problem. I tried the recipe but it didn’t work. I want to give it one more try as I hope it will work.

    After making milk cake put it a stainless container (old fashioned Roti Dabba) 4-5 inch thick layer and very hot, and then keep it warm. As it cools the outer layers cool first and the inner layers while cooling are still cooking and get browner than the outer layers. That way the outer layers stay lighter while inner layers become darker in color.

    Milk cake reminds me of my childhood days….every Sunday morning, my dad used to bring home from a neighborhood sweet and farsan mart – Khaman, Patra, Samosa, Fafda-Jalebi and Milk Cake. We sisters would hog up on it…and Mom would be making special Sunday meal, which we would consume in smaller (namesake) quantity since we were so full with all these goodies.

    Never thought Milk cake can be made at home. Eagerly waiting to see and try your recipe.
