Preheat the oven to 350 f.
Grease a 8 or 9 inch pan . Don't use small pan .I have seen disaster in the oven .
In a big bowl,sieve all purpose flour,baking powder,baking soda and cardamom powder. Add salt and mix it nicely.
Use a hand mixer or any type of mixer to beat butter and sugar till it is light and creamy . Ingredients need to be on room temp . otherwise you won't be able to make a creamy texture .
Add our mawa powder /grated mawa.
Add eggs one by one. there is a science behind adding one egg at a time . So please follow this rule
Now add half of the flour mixture to it . Mix it nicely .
Add milk to it and mix .
Then add rest of the flour .Mix it properly .
Important thing is not to overmix it .
Transfer the batter to a baking tin.
Always bake the cakes in the middle rack until unless its written otherwise.
It will take around 35 to 40 minutes. It depends on your oven .
Please check with a toothpick.you need to be cautious.Dont overbake ,otherwise it will be dry .
Cool it over the rack for 10-15 minutes.Slice it and serve .
You can store it on the counter in an air tight container .Though it will not last because your kids will finish it before reaching the air night container.
