How To Make Ghee Cake
Simply put, it’s a regular tea cake made with plenty of ghee instead of butter. Believe me, the aroma of this cake is out of this world.
To make this cake, start with whisking eggs and sugar. Make sure eggs are at room temperature and sugar dissolves completely to form a foamy texture. Add in ghee and vanilla extract, and whisk until everything is well combined.
Now, adding the dry ingredients for this ghee cake. Sift in all the dry ingredients including flour, baking powder and a pinch of salt. At this stage, you’ll need to fold in all the ingredients gently. Remember no overmixing.
And now your batter is ready to go into the preheated oven. Bake for about 40-45 minutes. The baking time may vary depending on the your oven. Make sure a skewer inserted into the center of the ghee cake comes out clean.
Once cooked, slice and serve with berries and whipped cream.
