Milk Cake

Yes, there is something called milk cakes, and my older cousins loved to make these for me and my smaller cousins and friends, whenever they had to babysit us or whenever we get hungry and no fruit trees like mangoes, oranges and plums and more are in season.  It was delicious.


120g flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
120ml milk (or water)
pinch of salt
100g sugar
110g butter
sugar to dip


Sift together the flour, baking powder and salt into a bowl. Meanwhile, combine the milk and sugar in a pan and heat gently until the sugar has dissolved. Add the butter and stir gently until molten (do not allow to boil).  Form a well in the dry ingredients then pour in the milk mixture. Mix gently by hand to form a dough then take small pieces and shape into balls. Dip the tops of these in sugar then place on a lightly-greased baking tray and place in an oven pre-heated to 180°C. Bake for about 12 minutes, or until cooked through and golden brown. Allow to cool on the baking tray before serving or storing.
