Milk Cake

I have googled "Milk Cake" for over a year, and what I find is a kind of Indian sweet, sticky n gooey instead of the recipe of a sponge cake which has a flavour of milk. There is this bakery "Cake Walk", in Bangalore from where we get this cake. My hubby goes crazy over this cake. I'm more like a chocolate cake person so I really can't understand this addiction. Recently I found my BFF too likes this cake. So finally, I got down to try out my own recipe.

1st attempt: Since I'm not a fan of just a plain white cake, I added powdered Cinnamon, more than required. End result was a really good looking but bitter tasting cake. I had to throw it away. lesson learnt, never add too much Cinnamon.

2nd attempt: It was very close to the milk cake but not quite there. This time I did not have condensed milk so I just managed with normal milk and sugar.

3rd attempt: Exactly the same recipe as the 1st one minus the Cinnamon lead to success. Why on earth do I stray from my original plan ever?

I baked and it turned out so great that R has been dreaming about the cake and asking me to bake more. I've already baked it twice and I'm sure I'll be baking many more.

Milk Cake


1cup all purpose flour/ maida
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1tsp vanilla essence
1cup sweetened condensed milk
3/4cup unsalted butter (or  flavour less vegetable oil as I did not find unsalted butter)
3 eggs


1. Grease a 9 inch cake pan. Preheat the oven to 175 degree Celsius  Sift the 1cup flour and 1tsp baking powder together. This is just to aerate the flour to get a spongy cake.

  6. Looking so yummy but Can we use white whole wheat flour instead of all purpose flour?

    1. i haven't tried it... but i think it should work, just that it will be a bit denser... for that u could increase the amount of baking powder by half teaspoon...
