Gerikiru Boakiba with Gerikiru Cream (Condensed Milk Cake with Condensed Milk Cream)
Hello everyone since I came from holidays I have been very busy with cake orders, today I got some time so I decided to bake a yummy condensed milk cake. This recipe was given to me by one of my cousin. She told me to add half laahi flour. Laahi is an empty condensed milk can used to measure ingredients, just like a cup. I did not have a laahi so I thought 3/4cup of flour will be fine. But when I baked the cake adding 3/4 cup of flour the cake came out dryer then it should be but still yummy. This did not satisfy me, so I decided again to bake this cake. This time I used 1/2cup of flour in this cake and cake came out great, little sticky and soft, this time I baked condensed milk cake in a rectangular tray because I want make small cute cakes layering with condensed milk cream and I melted some sugar to caramelize it and sprinkled the caramel on the cute cakes. If you want you can avoid sprinkling the caramel sugar. Below is the delicious recipe.
Ingredients for cake :
1can condensed milk
1tsp vanilla essence
1tsp baking powder
6 large eggs
Ingredients for condensed milk cream
1 cup heavy cream
3tbs condensed milk
To make Condensed milk cream: Beat heavy cream until stiff peaks and fold condensed milk in to the whipped cream. Keep in fridge until use.
To make cake: Preheat oven to 140C, line an 8 to 10inch tray with parchment or just apply some butter or margarine all inside the tray and sprinkle about 1tbs of flour coating all sides well set aside. In a bowl add all ingredients other then flour and baking powder beat until well combined.
Now sift flour and baking powder in to the bowl and beat well. This mixture will be very runny, pour mixture in to the baking tray.
Bake for about 20 to 30 minutes until when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out with few crumbs or clean.
Let the cake cool completely transfer cake to your serving plate and apply generous amount of condensed milk cream and serve.........enjoy!
