Egg free Parsi Mawa Cake | Egg free Bakery Style Mawa Cake is made without eggs as the name suggests, I had no plans to make this immediately after the Parsi mawa cake recipe that I posted yesterday. But it so happened that I received many messages and some emails asking for an eggless/ egg free version of the same. I felt it was necessary to do soon so that my readers can try if they so wish to, hence today I’m posting an egg free version here.

I saw a few videos on YouTube long back on egg free mawa cake and it is pretty much like my Egg free Ribbon Cake recipe with a few modifications here and there. The texture, to my surprise has turned out well and the taste is really caramel like, which I loved!!

Let’s move on to the recipe.

Preheat the oven @180’c.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together condensed milk and butter until they are fluffy. I whisked for about 5 minutes using an electric whisk.

Add 1/4 cup of milk and whisk again.

Whisk well.

Add grated khoya/ mawa.

Gently mix this mawa into the batter. Do not over mix. The batter is thick and a bit lumpy.

Grease a 9″ loaf pan, line the base with a piece of parchment.

Pour the batter into the pan, sprinkle some sliced pistachio on the top.

Tap the pan a few times on the work surface to release air bubbles.

Bake for 40-45 minutes @180’c. Once baked, do a toothpick test, the toothpick inserted in the center of the cake should come out clean or with a few soft crumbs.

If the cake is under cooked, bake for another 5-10 minutes.

Cool the cake on a cooling rack for an hour before de moulding it and slicing.

I’ll update the shelf life of the cake in the next 2-3 days as I need to see how well it keeps fresh.
