Recipe adapted from:Nita mehta’s cook book

Fresh cream-1 cup
Maida(all purpose flour)-1 ½ tbsp less than 2 cups
Sugar-1 cup(150 gm)
Milk-1/2 cup
Soda bicarb(baking soda)-1 tsp

Baking powder-1/2 tsp
Vanilla essence-1 tsp

  1. Sieve baking powder,maida and baking soda.
  2. Mix sugar and fresh cream  in a pan,leave it for 5- 10 minutes,mix well until sugar dissolves.
  3. Do not over beat,mix maida and essence.
  4. Add milk as much as needed to obtain a dropping consistency,beat well.
  5. Pout into a pre prepared 7” *4” or 7”  round tin ,preheat the oven at 210 deg C .
  6. Bake at 210 deg C for 10 minutes and then lower the temperature  to 150 deg C and bake for 30 to 35 minutes or till the cake is done.

My notes:

The recipe called  for ½ to ¾ cup of milk,I used nearly half cup,don’t add all the milk at once,add it as you want,little by little.
Baking time and temperature varies in every oven.
Insert a toothpick at the centre of the cake after the given time of baking ,if it comes out clean the cake is done.
The cake will raise and will be fluffy.
I used a heart shaped baking tin.
I used Amul fresh cream.
I did not use the electric beater while mixing the batter,just a spatula would be fine.
Don’t overbeat the cream as it may curdle.

  1. Dear Sangeetha,
    Thanks for posting very good recipes. I am planning to try today the eggless vanilla cake. I have a bajaj otg. Hopefully it will come ok. will message you. BTW do you use electric blender to mix the cake. Can you help me in step by step mixing of cake – Thanks
    With love Mangala

    • Hi Mangala!Sorry for the late reply.Even I use Bajaj OTG. Don’t worry it will come okay.Well for most of the cakes especially cakes with eggs I do use an electric beater or else a cake spatula and a normal whisk is more than enough.Always sieve the dry ingredients and add it little at a time so that it doesn’t form lumps and fly away.Once you add in the flour you should not overbeat it,you should lightly fold in the flour.Always grease a pan and lay a butter paper so that you get a clean base of the cake.Hope this will be of your help.Please message me in my Geeths dawath Fb page if you have any doubts.Thanks.
