Making biscuit cake recipe
- Grease a cake tin with oil. Line the bottom with a parchment paper followed by greasing a few drops of oil over it.
- Spread a good amount of salt in a kadai or a large vessel or pressure cooker and cover it. Then heat it over medium to high flame for 10 minutes. If using the cooker, separate the whistle and the rubber ring before using it.
- Pour the cake mix topped with sliced almonds. Then tab slightly for 3-4 times to prevent forming any air bubbles.
- Once done put a stand or small container over the salt and place the cake tin on it.
- Cover and bake for 25-30 minutes over low to medium flame.
- If using an oven, bake it in the preheated oven at 180° C for 25 minutes.
- If steaming, then steam it in a low flame for 25 minutes.
- Insert a toothpick in the center of the cake. If it comes out clean it is done. If not it will still need to be cooked and cook for few minutes more.
- Remove from flame and allow it to cool down.
- Once done transfer it to a serving plate. The biscuit cake is ready to serve. Slice and serve immediately.
- Sifting will make the cake lighter but if your biscuits have cream inside then skip sifting.
- No extra sugar has been added here. But if you like you can add some powdered sugar depending on your taste buds.
- Add milk gradually not in one go.
- Always mix the batter in one direction.
- Do not mix the batter too much or else it will not be spongy.
