Rosy condensed milk cake

Happy New Year friends! Welcome to a  New Year of cooking, creating and sharing.

Teatime is my favourite time of the day.  When in Maldives I look forward to catching up with friends and family for teatime. Teatime is filled with lots of spicy snacks or short eats and a little something sweet is a must for me always. I have a sweet tooth so I need to satisfy it.
This rosy condensed milk cake is quick and easy to make and one of my favourites to make for tea time. The addition of rose syrup or sherbet gives a beautiful colour and you will get hints of rose syrup flavour as well.  So go on give this recipe a try and make it for your next tea time.

      Hi Lindi, rose water is different from rose syrup or sherbet. It’s usually available in Sri Lankan or Indian shops. This is the one we use to make Faloodha too. If you can’t get rose syrup then you can use your home made rose water flavour sugar syrup. Give it a try, and thank you for your comments, hope this helps.

    Hi Nattu-ji,

    Just confirming that it is a 1/4 cup flour and not 1 and 1/4 cups? It seems so less!

      1. Thank you so much for your prompt response, that too on a Sunday night.

        The only modification to your recipe was one less tablespoon of sherbet, as I don’t like rose flavouring too much. It ended up being just subtle enough for my liking.

        The cake turned out well, except for the fact that my oven is temperamental and so even 20 minutes at 180 burnt the outsides a bit.

        Thank you for sharing these yummy treats from the Maldives. We follow your Instagram account (@noworriescurries) and are Melbourne-based too 🙂

        All the best xo
