This cake is used as a snack item in our place and served with tea.Some eat this dipping in tea,the pieces get real soaked(just like a sponge)The cake is very soft and spongy even without adding baking powder/soda. Traditionally the cake is flavored with cardamom but I use this cake in some of my puddings and there I flavor it using vanilla essence.So if you want you can use vanilla essence.Now lets come to the recipe:
Eggs 5 (large at room temperature)
Sugar 160 g
Salt a pinch
APF/Maida 125 g
Cardamom 4 crushed or Vanilla essence 1 tsp
Ghee 2 tbsp
-In a large bowl add the eggs,Sugar,Salt and the crushed cardamom.Beat this on med-high(knob at 4),using an electric beater for 10 minutes(the volume of the egg mix will increase and will be creamy.
-Now add the flour and mix on very low speed(at 1)or you can use a spoon and fold in the flour.
-Heat a non stick cake pan and add ghee.Spread the ghee well on the bottom and sides of the pan.
-Pour the cake batter ,cover and cook on a low flame for about 30 to 35 minutes or till done.
*You can check the cake by pressing it with your fingers, if it springs back then it's cooked or insert a skewer and check if it comes out clean.
*While adding the flour don't over mix, the flour has just to incorporate with the egg mixture.
