2 packets of Bourbon biscuits
1 packet ENO
1 cup of milk

Recipe For The Cake

Firstly take Bourbon biscuits and grind them in the mixer, to prepare a fine powder. Since you will be using Bourbon biscuits which are chocolate biscuits with chocolate cream, sprinkled with sugar, you don’t need to add any more sugar. The biscuits will be sweet by itself. Once the biscuits are crushed into a fine powder, empty it into a bowl.

Add half cup of milk in the Bourbon biscuit mixture, and stir it for a while. Follow it up by adding the rest of the milk and mix it well. Then take a vessel, and add me fourth of it with water. Keep a ring cutter in the vessel, and make sure that the level of water is below the ring cutter. If you don’t have a ring cutter then use any similar container that can elevate the cake tin.

Empty a full packet of ENO into the cake batter. Use ENO without any flavourings, it’s a blue coloured packet. Once you have added one packet of ENO in the mixture, then stir it only in one direction. Make sure the batter does not have lumps, and the consistency is smooth. Now, take a cake tin and grease it with oil, so the cake doesn’t stick to it. Grease the entire cake tin with oil, including the sides.

Once you’re done greasing the cake tin, pour the cake batter in it. You can either prepare the cake in a plain manner, or you can even top it with chopped nuts like walnuts, almonds, raisins and cashews. Place the cake tin in the vessel with water, when it’s boiling. Then place a lid on it. For the cake to cook, keep it for 25 minutes on a low flame in your gas stove. If you want to bake it in an oven, then you can also do that at 180 degrees.
