This cake extremely light, soft and moist cake is flavored with cloves & cinnamon . I used demerara sugar infused with real Madagascar vanilla for deep rich golden brown color.This makes a lovely dessert if paired with orange flavored ice cream .

  • Prep: 20 mins
  • Cook: 40 mins


1 cup All purpose flour

1/2 tsp Baking powder

1/2 tsp Baking soda

1/4 tsp Salt

3/4 cup Demerara sugar

1 Egg

1/4 cup Butter

1/4 cup Thick curd

1/3 cup Banana pureed

3 tbsp Cashew nut chopped

1 tsp Cinnamon powder

2 Cloves


1Pre heat the oven at 180 degree C . Grease and dust a 8" round cake tin . Powder the sugar along with cloves . Sift flour,baking powder,soda powder,salt and cinnamon powder . Cream butter and sugar . Add beaten egg and mix well . Add curd and mix gently . The mixture may curdle while adding curd . Using a spatula ,fold in rest of the dry ingredients very gently . Add chopped cashew nuts . Transfer the batter into prepared cake tin . Bake for 35-40 minutes or until done .

All the ingredients including curd must be room temperature .
White sugar can be used instead of demerara sugar .
Use thick curd .
If salted butter is used do not add extra salt .
It is always advisable to weigh eggs .
Egg in this recipe weighs 57gms with shell .
Temperature vary in each oven .
