Mini sweet spongy eggless cakes in my Ebelskiver pan...when you dont want to bother baking in an oven , when you need small portion sized treats, when you dont want to feel guilty!! Kids will love this, great way of making small mini cake pops , to send with school snack box...there are a zillion ways to decorate, I just dusted with powdered cinnamon sugar .
Basic cake batter ( reduce the qty if making a small trial batch..) You can halve the recipe for a small batch.
I think I am going to be doing this more often whenever I feel like having small portions of cake and there is no wastage too.
1 1/4 cup all purpose flour
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
3/4 cup condensed milk
4 tbsp melted butter /or oil
1 tsp vanilla essence
4 -5 tbsp milk
Sift the dry ingredients well. Keep aside. In a bowl, mix the wet ingredients..oil/melted butter, milk, condensed milk, whisk well. Then add the wet ingredients to the dry and fold like usual cake batter. Batter consistency to be of a thick pouring consistency. so adjust batter with little more milk till you get the right consistency.
Then heat the Ebelskiver pan reduce flame, quickly pour the batter in each of the greased well about 3/4 full as batter will rise, cover and cook/bake till done...should take less than 10 minutes.check for colour of cake by turning over with a skewer, if it is browned and inside cooked , remove.
You can also place a heavy tava on the bottom and keep the appe pan/ebelskiver pan on top, let it heat up and proceed. This reduces the chances of cakes getting darkened quickly.
After removing, turn on other side with white portion face up, as it tends to stick on the plate while cooling as it is very moist when hot..just a tip .
