Recipe - Indian Milk Cake

Milk Cake (Delicious Indian Dessert)

Yield: 900-1000gm
Time: 1 Hour 30 min

Indian Milk Cake is a delicious dessert that is very famous in India. This Rakhi I made them at home and sharing it with all of you. The method to make milk cake is easy, you just need a little time and patience (there is another method using microwave which I will share soon). I like to make sweets from scratch, this is homemade and can also be used at the time of fasting.
Here is the step by step recipe, hope you will like it!


  • Milk 3 liter (Around 12 Cups)
  • 1 Lemon Juice
  • 1 tsp. Cardamom Powder
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Ghee/Clarified Butter
  • Baking tray or any tin or steel tray


  • In a Heavy bottom pan heat up the milk and bring it to boil
  • Let milk boil on high flame and keep stirring to prevent from sticking to bottom
  • Boil milk till 1/3 then turn the gas to low flame
  • Now add the lemon juice mixed with equal amount of water and do not stir for 3-4 minutes, milk will start to curdle, it will give a nice grainy texture to the milk
  • Carefully remove the whey from sides so that milk cake will not taste sour
  • Continue to boil the curdled milk in low flame for next 10-15 minutes till milk is evaporated
  • Now add sugar, ghee or clarified butter and cardamom powder to the milk and continue to stir, mixture will turn into nice golden brown color and a thick and lumpy consistency
  • Take a baking tray or any tin, aluminum or steel tray and grease with ghee/clarified butter
  • Pour the milk mix to the tray spread it well
  • Let the milk cake set for overnight
  • Heat up a knife and run around the corner take it out in a plate then cut into desired shapes and size

  • Milk cake is ready now, enjoy!


  • Be careful to keep stirring the milk to keep from sticking to bottom
  • Making milk cake takes time and patience but the method is really easy
  • Shop keepers make milk cake on large vessels on high flame so when they pour milk mix to tray it is very hot and still cooking from inside so turns into dark brown from inside
