About Grandma Style Stovetop Ghee Cake Recipe

My grandma use to make cake on stovetop in wonder pot...Wondering what wonder pot is??? Wonder pot as you can see in the picture below is nothing but age old stove top bakeware. This is an age old bakeware which is getting rolling over generations in our kitchens. I really like the texture of the cake which is made in this wonder pot. The cake which is made in this wonder pot will look like pound cake and tastes like sponge cake.

Ingredients to make Grandma Style Stovetop Ghee Cake

  • 1 ½ cups Maida/all purpose flour
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tbsp. Vanilla essence
  • ¾ cup Milk, at room temperature
  • ¾ tsp. Baking powder
  • ¼ tbsp. baking soda
  • ¾ cup + 1 tbsp. ghee

How to make Grandma Style Stovetop Ghee Cake

  1. Grease the mold with table spoon of ghee and set aside. Add sand to the bottom plate and set this on stove on low flame.
  2. In the meantime take a bowl and sieve flour, baking powder and baking soda for 2-3 times and set aside. This is our dry ingredient mixture.
  3. In another bowl beat eggs until creamy and add vanilla essence along with milk. Beat for few more minutes. You can even use electrical beater or you can do the work in mixer jar.
  4. Now add ghee to this mixture and combine well. Make a well in the dry ingredients and very slowly fold in the wet ingredients.
  5. Pour this into the pre greased wonder pot oven and tap gently to spread the mixture evenly. Cover with a lid and gently place this over the bottom plate (filled with sand) which we have already kept on the stove to pre heat.
  6. On the low flame, let the cake bake for at least 35-40 minutes. Start checking with a skewer after 30 minutes. If it runs clean then our cake is ready.
  7. If the skewer runs clean, turn off the flame and leave it to sit on hot stove for another 5 minutes.
  8. Remove the wonder pot from the stove and leave to cool for 10-15 minutes on the kitchen counter.
  9. Gently flip onto a plate and after 5-8 minutes, cut into pieces. Our wonder pot cake is ready to serve and indulge.
