hi all..someone told me a great cake recipe yesterday..it sounded so simple that i couldnt wait to try it..and voila!! it came out so nice..so, sharing with you all.

parle g biscuits- 6-7

hide n seek biscuits- 4-5

milk- 1 cup

sugar- 2 tsp

eno- half satchet

butter- enough to grease the bowl

make a smooth batter of biscuits, sugar and milk. add eno and mix well. gease the baking bowl and pour the batter. microwave for 7 minutes on high. cake is ready!!

you can use chocolates/gems/dryfruits for icing. today i baked it again and put some dryfruits in the batter too..just loving it :)

  Dear Aanchal, 

Yesterday my little one wanted to bake a cake and I found the recipe given by u too simple to try else it becomes quite messy affair when we bake a  regular cake...

However, I made a few variations as i didn't have hide n seek biscuits and Eno.
I substitued Good Day Biscuits and used  4 small pieces  of Cadbury's  Dairy milk, some dry fruits and used 1/2 tsp of baking powder instead of Eno and baked it in OTG instead of microwave. 

It really came out very well and my 4.3 yr old daughter called two of her friends for a cake party in the afternoon and Lo ! the cake was consumed within 5 minutes !!!!!! 

A recipe with a twist....................................

Parle G biscuits- 6-7

Good Day biscuits- 4-5

Milk- 1 cup

Sugar- 2 tsp

Baking powder 1/2 tsp

Small piece of dairy milk (grated)

Dry fruits

Butter- enough to grease the bowl

Baked in OTG ..........coz i have the basic model Microwave

I am sharing few of the compressed pics from my kitchen ...........

She was crushing the biscuits.........

..........wanted to make it more fine by putting it in a mixer/grinder...


Grated  half of cadbury dairy milk  in the batter  and guess where was the other half.............. yes, it was in her tummy..........

 within 7 -8  minutes, the BISCUIT CAKE was ready  in OTG....


She enjoyed serving her two friends ..............

Had a wonderful time baking the Biscuit Cake !!!!!!!!!! 

Cheers !

tiyu 2011-09-06 17:05:14


try in the cooker........my MIL has done many times in cooker.............I did the above cake in microwave 1st....since I tried small qty n I think I overdid it....it became a cookie....hehehe.......but the big portion I did in oven as I did'nt want to take any more chances......I made more qty so v can consume for 2-3 dys n we also hv big fly.

Hi guys,

Such an interesting post. I dont have microwave. Can I use cooker, if so could you eloborate the process. My son loves cakes( all kids do:) and need to give him a surprise.


Cherri 2011-09-14 20:24:32


Hi Mickey,

Nice post. what is temparature you have set the OTG to bake the biscuit cake.

wanna try this for my little kid.

hey, how old is your daughter? looks pretty.  :)


mickey 2011-09-15 08:59:46


 Hi Cherry,
It was around 180. My daughter is now 4.4yrs....

Cheers !


mickey 2011-09-15 09:04:37


 Hi BrillAdith,
You need to put it in heavy bottom cooker without putting the weight. Don't pour water and keep it in sim for 10 to 15 min. I think it should bake. I have never tried but heard from my friends who usually bake this way.

You could also use sand in the cooker to bake it.

Do let us know after you bake in cooker .....

Happy Baking........

 Hi Mickey,

I tried in oven but it didn't become fluffy . Actually I experimented by adding in a bakery biscuit (just aise hi  ;) ) which had some coconut in it. 

After cooking for 7 min in Microwave, it didn't  become fluffy as it should be and was really hard from corners.

Any ideas 


mickey 2011-09-15 10:28:38


 Hi Jyoti, What did u use ? Eno / Baking powder or nothing ??????.......


 Former member 2011-09-15 10:43:56


 hi jyoti,

i think u must have put it in oven thats  the reason now try out it in microwave as told by aanchal.... if u want to put it in oven put at 180 degree. for say 4 to five minutes not more then that other wise ur cake will turn into a big cookie....... try it it really turns out yummy... cake .....u can also crushed milk chocolate for white colour in cake or dairy milk chocolate also.


Jyotisna 2011-09-15 11:45:46


 Mickey, I put half packet eno in it.


krishna..I put it in microwave for 7-8 minutes


mickey 2011-09-15 12:35:57


  Hi Jyoti, I think you need to set the temp in microwave too. This time reduce a bit and bake. I don't think it is bcoz  of coconut cookies...


tiyu 2011-09-15 16:02:40


yes jyoti its cause of overcooking....hehehe I tried a small portion in m/wave n it  became cookie then I did the big portion in oven.


Cherri 2011-09-15 18:11:31

thanks in advance


mickey 2011-09-15 18:52:52


  Hi Cherri,
There is a  very famous wholesale shop in General Bazaar ( Secunderabad) called Chawla's where u get all the things related to baking including  fresh butter meant for cakes. You need to walk inside a bit. It is opposite  Bommana Brothers, General Bazaar. 

You get all kinds of choclates including dark choclate bars required for cakes n icecreams......   040- 27812061

Happy Baking !
