Today it is a cake after a long time – a not too fancy cake – quite easy recipe if you have all the ingredients at home.
1 tin condensed milk,
100 gms softened butter,
300 gms refined flour,
2 tbsp cocoa powder,
2 ½ tsp baking powder,
1 tsp vanilla essence,
1 cup warm water
Sieve the refined flour and the baking powder thrice together.
Pour the condensed milk into a shallow vessel. Add the refined flour and baking powder mixture into the condensed milk bit by bit and mix well. Also add in the softened butter, vanilla essence and the warm water. Mix well to form a non-lumpy batter.
Pour out half the batter into another vessel and add the cocoa powder into this. Mix well.
Grease and flour a cake tin. Pour a layer of the cocoa-infused cake batter into the cake tin. Carefully pour a layer of the white cake batter. Follow up with the cocoa-infused cake batter. Follow this up with the white batter. Continue till all the batter is used up.
Pre heat the oven. Bake at 190oC for 40 minutes. Demould and cool. Slice and enjoy the fruit of your labour.
