Mava Cake

Baking is really fun and these days I am enjoying it a lot.Mava cake is an Indian cake  and in this cake mava (Khoya) and cardamom plays an important roles along with butter which gives beautiful texture and pleasant smell to the cake.

Plain flour-11/4 cup
Cardamom powder-1/2tsp
Baking powder-1/2tsp


  1. Mix plain flour, cardamom powder and baking powder and keep it aside.
  2. Beat together mava,sugar and butter at medium speed until light and fluffy.
  3. Now add eggs one at a time and beat at medium speed.
  4. Now add flour mixture and milk and mix thoroughly and gently with the help of a spatula.
  5. Preheat oven to 180 degree centigrade(Nearly for 15 minutes)
  6. Grease the cup cake moulds and pour the batter evenly into the moulds.
  7. Bake for 20-25 minutes.
To prepare khoya boil 1 liter milk in heavy bottomed sauce pan. Reduce the heat and simmer it. Keep stirring frequently so that the milk does not stick to the pan.
As the milk gets thicker stir more vigorously till you get thick,dry lump.
Remove from the pan and cool it completely before use.
This whole process takes 11/2 to 2 hours and one liter milk yields nearly 1/2 cup of khoya.
