Milk Cake

I was talking to one of my friends yesterday, and she mentioned she was tired of baking cakes and craving some real Indian sweets. With a promise to post an easy recipe by tonight, I ended the conversation with her. Here's my version of the "desi" milk cake... Have Fun Dimple!! 


1 cup ricotta cheese
1 cup milk powder (I prefer Nestle Carnation, but anything works)

3/4 Cup Sugar
1 stick unsalted butter (1 stick is around
½ cup)
2 pinches Cardamom powder for flavor
1 pinch Saffron for garnish

Parchment Paper (Wax paper)
A flat glass dish or a small cookie tray.


Microwave and melt the butter. In a glass bowl, mix sugar and milk powder. [Use a big bowl, as batter will rise when cooked]. Add the ricotta cheese and butter and mix well with a spatula (don't use hand mixer), until you get cake batter like consistency. Sprinkle the cardamom powder and mix it in the batter.

Microwave (on high) for 2-3 minutes, and stir the batter. Repeat the process, stirring the batter at the end of every 2-3 minute cycle. Total microwave cooking time should be around 9-10 minutes, or until it is crumbly and a bit browner.

Line the glass dish with parchment paper (or a little butter); pour the cooked batter in it and smoothen it. Garnish with saffron. Let it set and cool for 2-3 hours in room temperature. Cut in desired shape/size once set.
