Eggless cake - Niki's Baking Attempt

This is a Nestle recipe. Back in India, some one from Nestle visited my sister's home and demonstrated this recipe using Milkmaid. Ever since she bakes this often. It is very simple and very delectable.

So, when she goes back to Kansas, Niki wanted to bake this for a friend whose birthday is sometime in June, as this friend is a very strict vegetarian and does not eat eggs. She wanted a practice attempt at home.

Inspite of having a Nestle plant in Tema, I did not find their condensed milk on the shelves of the super markets. Suddenly, three days ago, we spotted just a few cans tucked behind the evaporated milk cans and we swept them all into our trolley. So yesterday she baked the cake and is happy to have done a good job.

Maida - 200 grams
Sweetened condensed milk - 1 tin (385 grams/13.6 oz.)
Butter - 100 grams
Baking powder - 1 tsp
Bi Carbonate of Soda - 1 tsp
Aerated Soda - 150 ml
Vanilla Essence - 1/2 tsp

Grease the baking tin and set the oven at 180°C/350°F.
Soften the butter. Add milkmaid and beat well. Add the vanilla essence.
Sieve together the maida, baking powder and soda bicarbonate.
Add maida mixture and aerated soda alternatively to the batter until all the maida and soda are used up.
Pour the batter into the baking tray and bake in the preheated oven for 45 - 50 minutes or until the toothpick inserted in the centre of the cake comes out clean.

Remove from oven and cool for a while. Turnout over a wire rack or a plate lined with cloth (to absorb the moisture)
