Eggless Sponge Cake with Mawa

Love to share this yummy soft textured Eggless Sponge Cake! I have used condensed milk, rich mawa (evaporated milk), walnuts. So I was confused whether I should call it as Eggless Sponge Cake Or Mawa Cake. But since I have used little quantity of mawa in my sponge cake so I concluded with Eggless Sponge Cake ;) ………. I made Eggless Sponge Cake as I got a request from my reader Neelima so Neelima this one is for you :) ………… I somehow wanted to try eggless sponge cake and I was quite happy with the result of it.

Eggless Sponge Cake

I am sure most of you guys wanna know what is Mawa? Mawa is also called as khoya in India and Evaporated milk abroad. Mawa is easily available in India in all Sweets Shop and Dairy shop. There are 2 kinds of Mawa one is sweet mawa other is plain Mawa. Sweet Mawa consists sugar in it and plain mawa has no sugar. If you are in India you are lucky but if you are from other countries than don’t worry. You could use sweetened (condensed milk) instead of mawa.

Replacements of mawa would be powdered milk with heavy cream Or use ricotta cheese. Just heat ricotta cheese on low heat in a pan. Let the water evaporate and you can use them now. Best part is you can make mawa at home. There are 2 ways of making mawa at home

  1. For Plain Mawa: Take 150 ml condensed milk of any good brand2 cups milk powder. Mix milk powder with condensed milk. Start kneading into dough. If its too dry add little condensed milk and if its too thin add little more milk powder.Place it in freezer. Now grate this frozen ball before using them for your desserts.
  2. For Granular Mawa: Take 2 ltr milk juice of 1/2 lime. Bring milk to boil in a heavy bottomed pan. When the milk has reached its boiling point. Squeeze lime juice. The milk will cuddle and whey will separate. Now take a linen cloth and strain this mixture once cold. Place a heavy weight stone or vessel over the cloth. Once all water comes out.Your cottage cheese Or khoya is ready. You could add  some dry fruits and sugar to enrich it

Hope the above process of making mawa Or evaporated milk help you guys!

      Nice to know that Sapna :) yes you could use unsalted butter the taste would differ as ghee has different taste it’s like when you use butter for chapati it has different taste and ghee has it’s own taste and flavor. I have used a small flower pan I am not sure about exact size should be around 4 inch wide and 4 inch in height. Hope this helps you… take care.
