I love baking cakes, its all because of my little daughter. She is the real inspiration behind every cake that is being baked in my kitchen. She loves whatever I bake and showers her kisses n hugs for baking it for her. So this recipe is another level baking I tried for her.
Maida 1 cup
Baking powder 1 tsp
Baking Soda 1 tsp
Butter 60 ml or ¼ cup
Milk ½ cup
Lime ½ tsp
Salt a pinch
Sugar 1 cup
Vanilla essence 1 tsp
Coco powder 2 tbsp
Before starting please make sure you grease the cake tin and keep it aside and yes sieve all dry ingredients together and keep aside.
Step 1 Take warm milk and add butter to it, give it a good stir and keep aside.
Step 2 Take 4 egg whites and with the help of an electric whisker whisk well. Add lime juice and whip till stiff peaks appear as shown in the image below.
Step 3 Whisk egg yolks with vanilla essence and add sugar little by little and keep whisking till it turns off white color.
Step 4 Now in the egg yolk mixture add dry ingredients little by little. Mix with the help of a spatula using cut and fold method. Simultaneously add butter and milk mixture to it in parts.
Step 5 Add whipped egg white in parts to it using same cut and fold method.
Step 6 Divide the batter into 2 parts and in one part add coco powder.
Step 7 Take baking tin and pour the batters alternatively to form layers. Pour 1 batter little the in the center add 2nd batter a little then again ad batter 1 n the center and keep repeating till all batter is poured in the cake tin. I have sprinkled some almonds on top of the batter.
Use tooth pick to make design.
Set the microwave for 6 minutes and bake the cake to perfection. Once the cake is baked give it a good rest of 20 minutes to cool down.
I hope you will love this recipe as much as I do. Do give it a try and let me know how it worked for you.
