Who doesn't love cakes!!

This is what I answer when anyone asks if the reason behind not experimenting with cakes is my distaste for it. But the reason of course is something else.

I still remember my first experiment with 'cake' and gosh, how disastrous was it!! It was some 10 years ago and till a month back, I could hardly gather the courage to take it over again, but then a very simple recipe suggested by my bhabhi did wonders and to my surprise, I made a super-hit biscuit cake!



I'm sharing this extremely simple recipe with all of you and hope you'll give me a positive feedback after trying it yourself. It's a perfect 'paisa vasool' one!!



HIDE AND SEEK CAKE:



Preparation + Cooking Time: 20-25 minutes

Servings: Depends on how big cake freak you are! ;)



Health Meter: This is an eggless cake for all those vegetarians who love brownies and chocolate cakes but are aversive to eggs. Here comes the goodness of carbohydrates, protein and minerals packed in a low fat cake which is super-tasty and equally healthy. You could try this simple cake on your fussy little eater if he/she says 'No No' for everything. I'm sure she'll be tempted! :)



Ingredients:

1 packet Hide and Seek Biscuits (100gms), 1 packet Parle -G Biscuits (100gms), 1 teaspoon Eno fruit salt (non flavoured), a pinch of salt, 3 tablespoons sugar, milk, ghee(for greasing).



Method:

Take the biscuits and sugar and grind them well in a grinder/mixer. Now add a pinch of salt to it and mix well. Add little milk to form a smooth batter (like that of jalebi/idli). Add Eno to it and see it is mixed well. This cake mixture has to be immediately baked; do not keep it for sometime. Keep the mould/baking dish ready after greasing it with ghee and you could also dust some maida over it.

You could add cherries or nuts to this mixture for added taste.

This mixture can be baked in several ways:



1. Electric Oven: Pre-heat the oven on 150 degrees Centigrade for 5 minutes. Take a pre-greased aluminium/tin mould and fill it with this mixture. Remember, it should be filled less than half. Transfer this dish to the oven and bake for 20-30 minutes on 150-180 degrees Centigrade. Check if its cooked well by pricking it with a tooth-pick and see that the batter doesn't stick to it anymore. Also, you'll see that the margins of the cake have left the sides. If it is not cooked, keep it for some more time. Once made, take the dish out carefully, cool it and then transfer the cake into a plate. Decorate with chocolate syrup, chocolate curls, grated chocolate, grated coconut, fruit syrup, nuts or cherries.



2. Gas Oven(the one used for making 'baati'):

Pre-heat the oven on low flame for 5 minutes. Take a pre-greased aluminium/tin mould and fill it with this mixture. Remember, it should be filled less than half. Transfer this dish to the oven and bake for 20-30 minutes on low flame. Check if its cooked well by pricking it with a tooth-pick and see that the batter doesn't stick to it anymore. Also, you'll see that the margins of the cake have left the sides. If it is not cooked, keep it for some more time. Once made, take the dish out carefully, cool it and then transfer the cake into a plate. Decorate with chocolate syrup, chocolate curls, grated chocolate, grated coconut, fruit syrup, nuts or cherries.



3. Pressure Cooker (I found this one the easiest of all!):

Pre-heat the cooker on low flame for 5 minutes. Take a pre-greased aluminium/tin/steel mould and fill it with this mixture. Remember, it should be filled less than half. Transfer this dish to the cooker and close the lid without the whistle on it. Do not add water to it. Heat it on low flame for 20-25 minutes. Check if its cooked well by pricking it with a tooth-pick and see that the batter doesn't stick to it anymore. Also, you'll see that the margins of the cake have left the sides. If it is not cooked, keep it for some more time. Once made, take the dish out carefully, cool it and then transfer the cake into a plate. Decorate with chocolate syrup, chocolate curls, grated chocolate, grated coconut, fruit syrup, nuts or cherries.





You could also make other flavours by picking the biscuits of your choice. You could use cream biscuits, bourbon biscuits, chocolate cookies, coconut cookies or just any variety that you love. Remember not to reveal the ingredients or the recipe to the person who's eating; let him/her take the effort of guessing it right!! ;)



Biscuits could be fun to experiment with; I never knew this till this came!! :))



I'd like to send this recipe to Priya's Fast Food Not Fat Food Event.
