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.


Ingredients :


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

Eggs                                      4

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.
