Chocolate Mawa Cake

Hi!!! I have already posted a recipe for a simple mawa cake. I tried this chocolate mawa cake recently and it turned out amazing. It was delicious and very simple to make. Cakes are my weakness and mawa/khoya cakes are very tasty. These cakes normally dont stay puffed and flatten out once cooked not to worry since mawa/khoya is very heavy and in this recipe I am using cocoa powder also the cake will sit down a bit once removed from oven. This cake is rich in flavors and ingredients and yet has a touch of simplicity. Let get baking this rich and flavorsome cake…



Unsalted Butter- 75 gms

Baking Powder- 1 tsp

Baking Soda/Soda Bi Carb- 1/2 tsp

All Purpose Flour/Maida- 250 gms

Vanilla Essence- 1 tsp

Mawa/Khoya- 100 gms

Tutti Frutti- 100 gms

Cocoa Powder – 2 tbsp

Chocolate Powder- 2 tbsp

Powdered Sugar – 100 gms

Curd – 75 gms

Milk- 2 cups


1) In a mixing bowl take the butter and sugar and beat it well. The butter should be at room temperature. It will become creamy and fluffy in texture.

2) Sieve the all purpose flour, cocoa powder and chocolate powder and mix it with the butter. Mix it coarsely using your hands the butter should get properly incorporated in the flour.

3) In a bowl take the curd, baking powder and baking soda and mix well. Cover the bowl and leave aside for five minutes.

4)Β Add this curd to the flour and butter mixture prepared. Now add the milk gradually and slowly in batches and keep mixing till there are no lumps and the batter is smooth and flows easily. It should be of pouring consistency. Now add the Vanilla essence and tutti frutti and mix well

5) Lastly add the mawa and mix well.

6) Take the baking tin and rub some oil in the tin. Now dust the tin using the all purpose flour.

7) Pour the batter in the tin. Take care that the batter should not be more than half of the height of the tin. The batter should be half of the tin or less then half only then it will have space to rise properly.

8) Bake in a preheated oven at 180 degree Celsius for 30 mins. Once done check by inserting pin/toothpick in the center if it comes out clean then the sponge is ready.
