Ghee Cake

Homemade cakes are the best! The cakes available in the market contains essence and preservative which I personally don't like. However, local bakery made cakes are better than the packed cakes (if you buy fresh bakery made cakes). I feel the packed cakes have artificial flavours and due to the use of preservative cakes have a typical taste.


I always like to bake my own cake however sometimes I have to buy those packed cakes when time do not permit to bake a fresh cake. This time I decided to incorporate desi flavours in my cake. Instead of butter I used clarified butter or what we normally call is ghee. Last few months a vendor comes from Tumkur to sell nati (desi) anda (egg). We purchase eggs in bulk for a month! That vendor got a bottle of desi ghee too. We purchased it but use one or two teaspoon in some of our curries. So the bottle is not getting over soon as we control our portion while eating ghee. This is another reason thought of making a ghee cake. While I was baking this cake a lovely aroma was surrounding me and through out the house.

Condensed Milk Pound Cake / Condensed Milk Cake

Who doesn't like condensed milk??

Very few will say no to it. I believe everyone has licked it while opening the tin. How many of you agree with me?? Condensed milk itself tastes so good, think about the recipe which calls for condensed milk must be so delicious. I know most of the yummy recipes increases our calorie meter. So in this condensed milk cake which calls for a cup of butter, I had used half cup butter and half cup refined oil. I have used only egg whites to keep white color of the cake. I have added 2/3 cup of sugar, even you can use little less than that as condensed milk itself will add sweetness to the cake. You can add vanilla essence after adding the egg whites or else you can avoid this step. Try this simple super yummy Condensed Milk Pound Cake with minimal ingredients.
