Baking Time : 30 to 35 mins
Resting Time : 2 hours
All Purpose Flour / Maida - 1 cup+ 2 tblsp / 120 grams + 2 tblspn
Baking Powder - ¾ tsp
Salt a pinch
Eggs - 2
Sugar - ¾ cup / 150 grams
Vanilla Essence - 1 tsp
Cold Water - ⅓ cup
For the Milk:
Full Cream Milk - 1 cup boiled and cooled
Fresh Cream / Whipping Cream - 1 cup
Sweet Condensed Milk - 1 cup
Whipped Cream - as needed
Cherries as needed
(My 1 cup measures 240 ml)
Preheat oven to 160 degree C. Grease a 20 cm square cake pan with oil and set aside.
Take flour, baking powder, salt in a sifter and sieve well.
Take cold water, vanilla in a jug and mix well. Set aside.
Take eggs in a bowl and use a hand blender to whip it up. Once it is well whipped. add in sugar slowly and keep whipping.
Once the eggs turn fluffy, add in half of the flour mix and whip, add in the cold water mix and the remaining flour and mix well.
Pour this into the cake pan and bake for 30 to 35 mins. Insert a toothpick to check whether the cake is done. If it comes out clean then the cake is baked.
While the cake is cooling, take the three milk in a jug and mix well.
Take the warm cake and poke holes all over it using a fork. Now pour the milk mix over it and keep pouring and pouring. Leave it for few minutes so the cake absorbs the liquid. Now pour again, i poured ¾ of the milk mix in. Covered it with plastic wrap and popped it in fridge for couple of hours.
Now i took out and poured some more milk mix in.
Cut the cake into pieces and garnish with whipped cream and cherries.
