This is a melt in the mouth Malai Cake that you can make using a pan and whole milk alone. No oven needed. No cream, milk powder, or condensed milk needed.


    Cake ingredients

  • Rabri


    Making the cake batter

  1. In a large bowl whisk together yogurt and baking soda till the yogurt looks frothy
  2. Add cooking oil, sugar, vanilla extract, salt, and whisk
  3. Place a strainer over the bowl and to that add all purpose flour and baking powder. Sift this in. We are sifting this so that the cake turns out airy and there are no clumps
  4. Combine the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients using the cut and fold method.
  5. Once the dry ingredients are incorporated, give it a quick brief whisk to get a nice and smooth batter
  6. Baking the cake on a pan

  7. I am using a 12 inch pan for this recipe
  8. Line it with a parchment paper
  9. Spread the batter evenly on the parchment paper
  10. Place a lid on and turn on the heat on low
  11. Bake till you see small bubbles on the surface of the cake
  12. Check if the batter feels dry on the surface and a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake should come out clean
  13. Turn off the heat and let the cake cool down
  14. Making Rabri

  15. Heat up whole milk in a pot along with cardamoms (cracked) and a pinch of kesar (saffron)
  16. Boil the milk while scraping the bottom and the edges of the pan
  17. Add 1/4 cup of granulated sugar (or to taste)
  18. Boil till the milk reaches half its original volume
  19. Take out half of the milk in a boil and set it aside
  20. Boil the remaining milk till it reaches a thick paste like consistency. Be sure to scrape the bottom of the pit and lower the heat so the rabri doesn’t burn
  21. Take out the rabri in a bowl and set it aside
  22. Making Malai Cake

  23. Using a cookie cutter or a glass cut out circular pieces from the cake
  24. Soak the cake with 3-4 tbsp. of the thin rabri
  25. Top with the thick rabri
  26. Garnish with slivered almonds, pistachios and kesar
