In a saucepan,heat the milk and butter together to boiling. Add to the ingredients in bowl and beat to combine. Pour the batter into the prepared tin and bake for 25- 30 mins or until the top is springy to touch.Let it cool on a rack for 5-10 mins.

Turn on the broiler in the oven.

Nice video Ria.. Just had a doubt, as to how to brown the topping in a microwave. I use the convection mode in a microwave for baking.

Ria Mathew said...

Hi Priya, thanks! I use an oven for all my baking so cannot comment on how to bake it in a microwave oven. Sorry!

Hi, thanks for the recipe. I have one doubt, we add the milk and butter mixture after cooling or after taking from the stove directly.

Hi ria
Can we use this sponge cake recipe for swiss roll? Does it roll well?

Ria Mathew said...

Ramya, I haven't tried it so cannot comment on how well it will roll up. This cake is unbelievably soft and moist. If you happen to roll it, please let me know! One thing is for sure, it will be delicious!

dear Ria
Since I will be using freshly grated coconut, must I increase the quantity of coconut or the amount of brown sugar.
Thank you

Ria Mathew said...

Hi Susan! You won't have to. However, taste and see if it's sweet enough for you. Adjust accordingly. There's nothing to go wrong here. I hope you enjoy the cake. It's a mighty good one!

Ria Mathew said...
