Instructions

  1. Preparing the cake batter

    • To make the guava puree, take 3-4 fresh guavas, remove the seeds, and puree them in a blender until smooth. 
    • In a bowl, add the vegetable oil to the brown sugar, whisk them well.
    • To the bowl, add guava puree, vanilla essence, curd, and vinegar. Mix well.
    • Into another bowl, sieve jowar or sorghum flour.
    • To the flour, add baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, red chili powder. Whisk well to combine.
    • Using a spatula, mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients gently, add a little at a time to avoid splatter. 
    • Then add milk little by little to the batter. Your cake batter is now ready!

    If the cake batter looks thick and lumpy, and you’re not able to move a spoon or spatula in it easily, you can add a few teaspoons of milk, and mix it well to get a smooth batter.

  2. Coloring the cake batter

    • Divide the cake batter into 3 equal batches or parts. 
    • To the 1st part, add 5 – 6 drops of red food coloring, mix well to get a deep pink color.
    • To the 2nd part, add 3 – 4 drops of red food coloring, mix well to get a medium pink color.
    • To the 3rd part, add 1 – 2 drops of red food coloring, mix well to get a light pink color


  3. Baking the cake

    • Preheat the oven with both rods and convection/ fan on, at 180 degrees Celsius for 15 – 20 minutes.

    • Grease your cake moulds with vegetable oil, using a brush, or your fingers.

    • Pour the 3 cake batters into individual greased and lined cake moulds, and make them at 180 degrees Celsius for 40 – 45 minutes.  

    • After taking the cake from the oven, check with a toothpick that the cake has baked through. 

    • If the toothpick comes out clean, that means your cake is ready. If not, then allow it to bake for another 5 minutes, then test it again with the toothpick.
