Do you buy a rasmalai cake from the cake shop? Do you want to bake one at home? An average rasmalai cake price (1 kg) is Rs. 1,800 INR. I’m sure this rasmalai cake recipe wouldn’t cost you this much!

What is the easiest cake to bake at home? That’s the question of every beginner, and I’m a beginner too. This recipe is tried and tested at home. I’ve used store-bought rasmalai and very basic ingredients that are readily available at home. This is a simple and one of the best cakes to bake at home. Moreover, this is a non-cream cake! This is a simple eggless sponge cake or tea cake enriched with rasmalai flavor.

Wheat flour - ½ cup
Maida - ½ cup
Sugar- ½ cup
Baking powder - 1 Tsp
Saffron - few strands

I didn't add eggs; if you want, you can include 1 egg and reduce the amount of rasmalai milk.

Method of preparation

Add butter (room temperature - not melted) in a large mixing bowl
Add 1 egg (skip this step, if you want eggless rasmalai cake)
Add sugar and beat until creamy
Add rasmalai milk, saffron strands and mix the ingredients
Now, add the rasmalai pieces and blend it properly
Sieve baking powder, wheat flour, and maida and mix it without lumps

It will be creamy and not watery
Grease the baking pan and pour the batter


To bake

Preheat the Microwave in convection mode 180 degree
Bake the cake for 40 minutes
When done, insert a toothpick, and it has to come out clean.
