recipeIngredient (used american measuring cup, 1 cup = 250 ml)
  • 400 gms flour ( I took 1:1 proportion of wheat flour and refined flour)
  • 1 t/s baking powder
  • 1 t/s salt
  • 1 tbsp corn flour
  • 125 gms chilled cream cheese ( I used homemade cream cheese)
  • 100 ml chilled fresh cream Or whipped cream
  • 4 tbsp oil ( use any vegetable oil)
  • 200 gms organic sugar (use any kind of sugar)
  • 1.5 t/s cardamom powder
  • 1 t/s cinnamon powder
  • ½ t/s clove powder
  • ½ t/s nutmeg powder
  • ½ t/s dried ginger powder
  • 3 tbsp charoli
  • 8 to 10 crushed almonds
  • 10 pistachio flakes Or crushed mixed with ½ t/s flour
  • 2 tbsp water + 1 t/s baking soda
How to make the recipe?
  1. Preheat oven at 180°C for ten minutes before baking. Grease a round detachable pan with oil place a parchment paper at the bottom.
  2. Sift flour, salt, baking powder and corn flour.
  3. With the help of beater beat cream cheese and and whipped cream on high speed for 2 mins.
  4. Add oil to the above wet mixture and beat again for a minute more.
  5. It's time to add sugar and beat on medium speed until sugar is dissolved.
  6. Fold sifted flour gradually into batches of 3.
  7. Lastly add all spices powder (cardamom powder, nutmeg powder, dried ginger powder, clove powder and cinnamon powder). Also combine charoli and almonds.
  8. Mix baking soda with water. Add this mixture into cake batter and fold gently. Pour the batter into the greased detachable pan. Top the cake with chopped pistachios.
  9. Bake at 180°C for the first ten mins then reduce the temperature to 160°C and bake for another 45 mins Or until the skewer comes out clean. Allow the cake to cool in the pan. Once cools down gently umould and remove the baking paper. Serve warm Or chilled with a dollop of cream Or icecream.
Notes
1. It's better to mix some flour with the nuts as this process helps them not to sink in the cake batter.
2. If the cake is browning you could cover the cake with foil.
3. If you like butter use it in replacement of oil.
4. I haven't used any frosting you could use chantilly cream for frosting this cake.
5. Please don't underbake Or overbake this cake.
6. Also you could use an allspice powder for this cake Or you preferred spice powder.
7. I used homemade creamcheese you could use of any brand.
