- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 1/2 cup milk powder (The milk powder makes it extra special, so do not skip it)
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/3 cup sugar – add less if you want, but i love it sweet
- 1 tsp salt
All the ingredients has to be room temperature
- 1 tin condensed milk – 400 gm
- 1/2 cup oil
- 1 tsp vinegar
- 1 tsp yogurt
- 1 tsp pink colour
- 1 tsp yellow colour
Preheat the oven at 180 degrees Celsius
Sieve all the dry ingredients and keep aside, then mix all the wet ingredients together and mix in little at a time into the dry mix..Its really easy, just be gentle and mix in slowly till you have a smooth batter. In case your mix is very thick, you can dilute the batter with water.
- Now divide the batter into 2 parts and add in the colour of your choice used pink and yellow. Add a little of each to a cake tin and make a marble effect.
- Bake the cake at 180 c for 25 min,then after cooling cut and re-bake for 30 min at 150 degrees Celsius,15 min on each side.
- After the cake is baked, allow to cool and then cut.
Now is time to make the rusk. Re-bake at 150 degrees Celsius for 15 min on each side.
It’s ready now.
You can store these up to 2 weeks in an airtight tin. Adding vinegar and yogurt makes the cake get a lift, and for rusks airy cakes are perfect. For the loaf do not mix in the colored cake batter. Add one layer and add the other layer on top and tap 2-3 times.
