For this delicious cake, you would need:

  • 240 grams of all-purpose flour
  • 8 to 10 finely crushed green cardamoms, for flavor
  • One whole cup of powdered sugar
  • 150 grams of unsalted butter, melted at room temperature
  • Half a teaspoon of baking soda

  • 4 big tablespoons of light cream
  • 2 tablespoons of heavy whipping cream, you can add the two creams together for your convenience, if you like
  • One cup of full cream milk

        Lastly, the main ingredient of the cake

  • 140 to 150 grams of crumbled khoya or mawa.

After gathering all the necessary ingredients, put them all out to use and get to work right away!

  • First of all, prepare your pan for baking. Grease the pan completely with some melted butter or spray vegetable oil on it. After covering the internal surface of the pan, sprinkle some flour on it. Make sure that a light misty layer of flour is cover the pan surface, you can even tap it lightly on your kitchen counter to even it out.
  • After that take your mawa to start crumbling it as much as you can with your bare hands, remember do not use any electric device for this or you may make it too fine. Next, preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius or 356 degrees Fahrenheit, for about 15 to 20 minutes. Meanwhile, take some butter papers and grease those as well. Now, keep both the crumbled mawa and greased butter papers aside.
  • Next, take a big bowl, pour melted butter and sugar into it, and get to mixing. As the sugar is powdered it will not take you much time however keep mixing until you achieve a fluffy consistency for the mix. Then add the pre-crumbled mawa into the mix and get to beating again. This mixture needs to be as smooth as you can do so take your time with the batter.
  • After you are done mixing, pour both, baking powder and baking soda directly into the batter. Once you start mixing you will see that the fluff of the batter is increasing, that is normal, so don’t be scared and keep mixing.
  • Next, add milk, whipping cream, and cardamom powder into the mixing bowl and try to mix the batter as much as you can. We know that this cake requires a lot of mixing but well the taste is worth it so be brave and keep beating.
  • Keep beating until all the ingredients are incorporated together. Once you are satisfied with the consistency of the batter, transfer it into the prepared cake pan.
  • Now bake the cake at 180 degrees Celsius or 356 degrees Fahrenheit for around 45 mins to one hour. To check if the cake is baked properly or not, poke the cake with a toothpick or bamboo skewer, if it comes out clean that means the cake is done. 
  • Now bring the cake out and let it cool down properly. After it’s cold enough to touch, you can either garnish it with some whipped cream to give it a more cakey look or you can serve it raw with some black coffee. But if you ask us, we would always prefer this desi style cake with the traditional love of the entire nation- Chai!
