Milk Cake

Milk Cake is one of the very famous sweets in northern India. I’ve hardly found any sweet shop not selling it, as kids we used to look forward to having it as a treat. This love and fondness for it has ever grown and I keep buying it from the market every now and then. However, this time I thought of making it myself at home and it turned out just like my favourite one from the market. They can either be topped with some dry fruits or just served plain, this is a personal choice, the basic recipe is pretty much the same. Are you also longing to have some sweets at home or going to celebrate a festival? Milk Cake is definitely a good choice and easy to make. Just use this simple Milk Cake Recipe and enjoy it with a personal touch.
