Mawa cake

This is by far my favourite cake in all respects. The taste is heavenly of course but the winner for me is that you don’t need your weighing scales at all. Just a few measuring cups and viola, you are done!

This cake is so good that I made it three days in a row and still didn’t manage to get a decent picture for my blog. It was devoured after dinner, during breakfast and once when it came out of the oven, steaming hot!

Do try it out and let me know how it was…

Thanks to Savita Kulkarni from cooks forum who shared this recipe first and then to all those who trended it in the next few days.
