120g Maida
120g Salted butter
120g powdered sugar
3 eggs
¼ tsp vanilla essence
½ tsp baking powder
Milk if required

  • Sift maida and baking powder together.
  • Beat butter and sugar.
  • Add eggs and maida alternatively to the butter-sugar mixture.

  • If the mixture becomes too thick , loosen it by adding milk.

  • Keep a ring or small steel stand inside the cooker.
  • Line the cake tin with butter and sprinkle Maida to cover all sides.

  • Lower to low flame for 5 minutes.
  • Check if the cake is baked by inserting a toothpick in the middle. It should come out clean.
  • Remove cake from cooker and leave it to cool for 10 – 15 minutes. Do not place it under the fan as it may lose its moisture and make the cake dry.

Fugde Icing:

1/2 tin(200 gm) Condensed milk(I used Amul Mithaimate)
50 gms butter

  • Heat a pan. Put 3 tablespoon sugar and stir.
  • The sugar will caramelize to a dark brown colour.
  • Remove from fire and add condensed milk first and keep stirring briskly.
  • Add butter and mix well.
  • Keep on high flame first and then reduce to medium flame. Keep stirring to reach a thick consistency.
  • Make sure no lumps are formed.
