Badam Cake

I prepared Badam cake for day 2 of Blogging Marathon #22 under Diwali Special.The main thing to note while making this cake is the final consistency and I got the right texture.

Badam cake preparation

Badam Cake

  • Soak Almonds in hot water for 5-6 hrs.I usually soak it overnight.
  • Peel off the skin and grind the almonds and milk(around 3/4 cup) to a fine paste.
  • Heat a pan,add the sugar and little water enough to immerse the sugar.Stir till sugar is dissolved.
  • Grease a plate with ghee and keep it ready.Soak saffron in little warm milk.
  • Boil till the sugar syrup reaches one string consistency.(If you press little syrup between your thumb and index fingers,it should form a single thread)
  • Now add the ground almond paste,saffron milk and mix well.
  • Stir continuously.Once it starts thickening add ghee little by little and stir well.
  • Once the mixture starts leaving the sides and you get a froth like texture, immediately pour on the greased plate and level the top using a flat base.
  • After 4-5 mins draw lines to make pieces and remove after some time.
