Ingredients to make Cake Sandesh

  • For the cake:
  • All-purpose Flour - 2/3 cup (83 gm)
  • Dutch-processed unsweetened cocoa powder – 1/3 cup (39 gm)
  • Baking Powder – 3/4 tsp
  • baking soda – 1/2 tsp
  • salt – 1/4 tsp
  • Superfine castor sugar – 2/3 cup (150 gm)
  • egg, room temperature – 1, large
  • Milk – 4 tbsp (59 ml)
  • Vegetable oil – 3 tbsp
  • water – 4 tbsp
  • Vanilla extract – 1/2 tsp
  • butter – for greasing
  • For the Sandesh:
  • coconut - 1/2 cup, grated
  • Condensed milk - 1/4 cup
  • Edible gold dust

How to make Cake Sandesh

  1. Preheat oven to 180 C, and grease and line a 6 inch baking tin.
  2. In a large bowl, add the egg, oil, sugar and vanilla extract and whisk it well with a hand beater, or a wire whisk.
  3. To this, sieve in the flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, and cocoa powder.
  4. Whisk, whisk, whisk…and add the water, forming a thick, smooth batter.
  5. Pour this into the greased tin, and bake for 40 minutes, or until skewer comes out clean.
  6. Let the cake cool completely. Once cooled, crumble it up. To this, add the condensed milk and grated coconut.
  7. Mix well, kneading the cake until it becomes a smooth lump.
  8. Grease your sandesh moulds, and gently press a small lump of cake mixture in and smoothen it out with your finger.
  9. Gently remove the cake from the mould. Repeat process until you have finished your cake mixture.
  10. Now carefully dust the tops of the cake sandesh with some gold dust.
  11. Leave it to chill for a few hours, and serve.

My Tip:

You can skip the coconut and add other flavouring if you can also make this with plain vanilla cake, or other flavoured cakes as well.
