Its Diwali and my recipe is a bit late but i have been so busy! My daughter does not like mithais (indian traditional sweetmeats) so i made this for her…a simple recipe ….with a “twist”.
150 grams of softened butter
1 cup of sugar (250 grams)
1.5 cups of flour (use the same cup as you did to measure the sugar)
1 cup of whole fat milk powder
1 teaspoon of vanilla essence or any essence of your choice
1 tablespoon of lemon juice
a pinch of salt
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1 cup of whole milk
food coloring to make it decorative
Preheat the oven to 200 and grease a cake pan
Cream the butter till fluffy and then add the sugar and cream it again till its nice and fluffy.
Mix the flour with the milk powder and sift it.
Add it slowly to the butter/sugar mixture alternating with the milk.
Add the salt, lemon juice and the flavoring.
Lastly add the baking soda and baking powder and mix well.
Divide the batter equally into 3 parts and color each part with food color
Pour into the cake pan in different layers or if using a square pan pour each colored batter into a line and bake for about 30-40 minutes till done.
Cut and serve and bite into a lovely cake with a different flavor
