Vanilla Cake

What you need: 

1/2 tin condensed milk (200gms) use vegan versions
2 3/4 cups plain flour (280gms)
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda (soda bicarbonate)
2 teaspoons powdered sugar
1/2 cup margarine melted (60gms)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
100 ml milk
100 ml soda water/aerated water

What you do: 

Sieve flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, all together 2 to 3 times. Keep aside.
Pour condensed milk in a bowl. Add the margarine, and beat well till smooth. Add the flour spoon by spoon, mixing into the condensed milk mixture. In between, add milk as required if the mixture begins to get too stiff.
[Stir the mixture in one direction only all the while. This will incorporate more air and make the cake lighter].
Once all the flour is used up, beat the batter as above till light (5-7 minutes). Add the soda and mix gently till smooth.
Pour into a greased cake tin. Do not smooth with a spoon etc. If the consistency is right this will not be needed.
Pre-heat over to 300o. Place tin inside. Bake at 200o for 5-7 minutes and 150o till done. (35 to 40 minutes).
Poke with a skewer and check. Cool a little. Invert on wire rack. Cool completely before doing icing if any. Or serve warm with tea.

Hi herbgal,

I haven't tried this either but I wonder whether you could use tofu mixed with soy milk and a bit of vanilla extract and cane sugar to get the consistency and taste of condensed milk?


Haven't tried this yet but where on earth do you get vegan condensed milk? I haven't seen any in Australia. Do you have a brand that I can search for? :-\
