💕NOTES BY FOODEVA MARSAY 💕
📍 Castor Sugar(fine granulated sugar) may be upped to 1 CUP, and the same applies for Regular White sugar.
📍 I have used Unsalted Butter, but using a regular salted butter works just as well, USE ONLY BUTTER NOT MAGARINE 😉
📍 This recipe works well with a 2% less fat milk, as well as the Long Life varieties. Here I used a full cream milk.
📍 Cardamom Powder may be eliminated.
📍 Regular All-Purpose or Cake Flour may also be used, add in 1⁄2 teaspoon more of baking powder.
📍This bake doesn’t contain any eggs, so it will be safe to store at room temperature, however if you living in very hot climates, and think it best to keep in the refrigerator, do remember to bring the bake back to room temperature before serving.
📍 I have successfully served this as a dessert>>> TO SERVE AS A DESSERT… simply serve warm straight from the oven, with custard or dessert cream, it is DIVINE 😍. Works well Even if you have ones that are sliced into squares, warm slightly in the microwave before serving. NOW TEA-TIME TREAT AND DESSERT… SORTED!!!
