How to Make Custard Powder Snack Cake

  • Add milk in a bowl, then add butter and mix well.
  • Next add vanilla essence and mix again with a whisk.
  • Then add the sugar and mix till it completely dissolves. Alternatively you can powder the sugar and then add so that it dissolves quickly.
  • Sieve maida, custard powder and baking powder, then add them to the mixture. Sieving is done to avoid any dust particles and also to ensure even spread of the baking powder.
  • Mix until a creamy batter is formed. Then grease a baking pan with butter paper and pour the batter into it.
  • Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C for 10 minutes and bake the cake for 35-40 minutes. Test by inserting a toothpick in the middle of the cake before you switch off.
  • Cool it completely for at least 20 minutes, then cut into pieces.
