While condensed milk enhances the richness of this cake, a dash of coffee powder adds to its flavour, bringing the overall experience to an incomparably high level!

Hi, can you please mention the quantity by weight so that it would be easy for beginners to start with minimal failure. Also, when you say one cup... how much does it measure by weight/size/quantity. This will be really helpful ??. Help with the quantity by weight.

   Hi tej, Measuring spoons and cups are easily available in the market and come handy instead of a weighing scale. One cup is approx 250gms

Is there any substitute for condensed milk? What would be the measurements for the same?

   Hi Anuradha, since this is eggless cake recipe, condensed milk gives it a good volume and makes the cake soft, since you requested you can substitute it with 1/2 cup milk powder 1 tbsp powdered sugar 2 tsp melted butter 3 to 4 tbsp of hot water, mix these ingredients well and make a pouring mixture and use it instead of condensed milk. We havent tried this substitute yet in our kitchen, do try and share your feedback with us. Happy Cooking!!!

   Hi, There is a lot of condensed milk and dates for sweetness if you wish you can add more condensed milk and adjust the consistency accordingly.
