Mawa or Khoa Cup Cake (Mumbai's Irani Cafe special Mewa Cup Cake) Cup Cake made using evaporated milk




Mawa cakes are a very popular item sold in Iranian cafes or  bakeries in Mumbai and Pune.These mawa cakes are soft and buttery infused with cardamom flavour.

Mawa (also known as Khoya/ Khoa) is a evaporated milk, made by slowly reducing  full fat milk until all that remain is a mass of slightly milk solids.
You  would love to have  a mawa cupcake with a hot cup of tea or coffee.

You can either you make them home or purchase from store. Here I made mawa at home.

Tips
___________

If you bake in OTG,then always  make sure both the rods are on.

Place the cake pan in the middle rack.

If you bake in microwave,always bake at CONVECTION mode and use the lower grilling rack for baking.

Do not increase or decrease the temperature during baking.

Once baking is complete,then remove the pan from the oven as soon as possible.

Do not open the door of the oven while baking,otherwise moisture will get into the oven and it will harm your cake.

    1. Hi dear,electric beater or whish anything you can use..even if you not have both ,can beat with fork.After adding flour mixture to the wet mixture,do noy beat,just fold or mix with spatula very slowly,then you will get fluffy and spongy cake and cake would not be flat on top

    2. It may happen that it is eggless,eggs help to rise cake,but if the texture is fluffy and soft that means your cake is perfect..a perfect cake means soft,fluffy and no cracks on top.If you mix wet ingredients with hand whisk then do one thing before adding mawa to wet ingredients, grind it in a mixer then mix...then follow the steps. .then it would not be curdled and if is is curdled little bit,its because of mawa..it will not make any difference. ..

  18. Hi Moumita, when you condense the milk down does it caramelize a little? looks very delicious and moist, I know I would love this.
