  • Now add the milk & vanilla essence and mix them well using a whisk in one direction.Make sure there are no lumps.Do not beat the mixture.Fold it gently.Add the chopped cashew nuts.Check the consistency of batter.If it is very thick,add 2 tbsp milk.The batter should fall like a ribbon.That’s the correct consistency.

  • Now take a baking pan and line it with a butter paper or grease the pan with oil & sprinkle maida all over the pan to coat it. I used a non-stick pan for baking.So i din’t grease it.I used the pan as such.Fill the pan with batter and pat it well to break the air bubbles.

  • Preheat the oven in convection mode at 180c and bake the cake at 180c for 25-30 minutes.First keep the time for 20 minutes & brush the top of cake with milk.Again bake it for 3 minutes.Check the cake by inserting a tooth pick.If the tooth pick comes out with uncooked batter,u have to bake for another 2 minutes.Again remove & check with the tooth pick.If the cake is not done,bake for 2 minutes more.Mine took exactly 28 minutes.Once the cake is done,the tooth pick will come out clean little crumbs.Hope u can see the crumb in the picture below.

  • Allow the cake to cool down for 20 minutes.Now run a knife all through the sides of cake and invert the pan over a plate.It will come off easily.Cut them into slices & enjoy with your coffee/tea !

  • Add more milk(few tbsp) to adjust the consistency of cake batter.But make sure u bake for more time because cake takes more time to bake based on the consistency of batter.
  • You should bake it until the tooth pick comes out clean or with little crumbs.Over baking makes the cake hard & chewy sometimes burnt too.
  • Under baking gives you a sticky tasting cake.So please adjust the baking time as per your oven.


Enjoy this yummy cake with coffee or tea ! It tastes yum!
