Eggless Custard Powder Cake

Custardpowdercake5

Most of you would have already known the fact that I'm a cricket freak and enjoy the sport to the fullest :)

I have been enjoying this season of IPL and yup with no doubt I support my home team Chennai Super Kings :) They have been rocking and are all set to fight in the finals this Saturday :) So doesn't that demand for a celebration by itself?? :)

Now this post of a yellow cake is a dedication to the team in yellow and I'm wishing them all the best to bag the trophy again this year :)

Let the Mighty Lions roar again!! :) Good luck CSK :)

Custard powder cake is one of the most popular cake that I have been seeing among co-bloggers and has been rated to a favorite of many.

Aparna of Diverse kitchen was the one who initially tried it out and tempted all of us too much :) She is one of my most favorite among food bloggers. I was just waiting for an occasion to try this cake and here it comes :)

The flavor of custard powder makes this cake unique and tasty too :)

Ingredients:

All purpose flour(maida) - 1 1/2 cups
Custard powder(vanilla flavor) - 3/4 cup
Powdered sugar - 3/4 cup
Baking powder - 2 1/4 tsp
Butter - 3/4 cup (150 gms)
Milk - 1 cup

Method:

Sift maida, custard powder and baking powder together.

In a bowl, beat butter and sugar until creamy. Add the sifted flours to the butter sugar mixture and mix well. Add the milk gradually and beat slowly until everything comes together.

Preheat oven to 350°F or 180°C. Line the muffin tray with liners.

Fill muffin cups with batter upto 3/4th and bake it for 15-20 mins at 375°F or 190°C. Adjust the time according to your oven settings.

I baked 6 muffins and the rest in my 4" Silicon mould which took around 50 mins to bake at 180°C.

Check if cooked by inserting a skewer in the center. Once done, allow it to cool on a wire rack for a while.

Delicious and pretty looking custard powder cake is ready :) Enjoy eating :)

Tips:

To make different flavors of cake, replace the custard powder with respective flavors and enjoy :)

You can replace the custard powder to corn flour and add few drops of vanilla essence to it to make the same cake too.
