One of the most aromatic, moist and delicious cakes by light years. All thanks to the mighty Ghee.


For the Batter:

200 g Granulated Sugar

200 ml Ghee (I used Lato)

250 g All Purpose Flour

1 tbsp Baking Powder

1 tsp Salt

3 Eggs

1 tbsp Vanilla Paste / Vanilla Extract

200 ml Strawberry Jam (leave some to serve with)


The Batter

  1. Preheat the fan oven to 170Ā°Cā€Š.
  2. Beat the sugar, eggs & vanilla paste or vanilla extract in a mixer on a medium speed.
  3. Add the ghee to batter & continue mixing until it increases in volume.
  4. Sift the flour, baking powder & salt into a bowl.
  5. Reduce the mixer speed to low & add the flour mixture 1/3ā€Š at a time.
  6. Pour the cake batter into two prepared oiled (I used vegetable oil) & floured or lined loaf tins. You can use one tin for a taller loaf.
  7. Dollop the strawberry jam on to the middle of the batter.
  8. Use a toothpick to gently swirl the batter & strawberry jam together.
  9. Put the cake batter into the oven for 45 – 50 minutes.
  10. Poke the cake with a toothpick or skewer in the middle at 40 -45 minutes. It is ready when the toothpick/skewer comes out clean.

Serve with vanilla ice-cream & the left over strawberry jam.

Happy Baking! šŸ°šŸ°šŸ°šŸ°šŸ°
