Milk Powder Cake

Milk Powder Cake

Milk powder has a particular taste that has enthralled me throughout my lifetime. The yummy flavour enhances anything that you add it to. I use it sometimes in my tea or coffee to give it some extra creaminess and this time I decided to use it in a cake. The Milk Powder Cake will soon become your household’s favourite tea time cake.

Serves: 6 to 8 Persons

Prep. Time: 10 Mins

Baking Time: 30 to 35 Mins


  • Maida [APF] – 135 gms
  • Salted Butter (melted) – 135 gms
  • Granulated Sugar – 135 gms
  • Milk Powder (dairy) – 45 gms
  • Baking Powder – ¾ tbsp.

Step 1:     Take the sugar and the milk powder in a bowl. Add  135 ml warm water and stir till the sugar dissolves (use a whisk).

Step 3:     Add the baking powder to the maida and mix. Then sieve it using a fine mesh sieve.

Step 4:     Add the sieved flour to the prepared milk mixture and fold in lightly using a silicon spatula using the cut and fold method (see note).
