Milk cake Barfi Recipes

Milk Cake is a delicious, mouthwatering dessert. This is a unique “cake” made with just a few ingredients, primarily milk and sugar and has a touch of sourness to it.

Recipe will make approximately 12 pieces


  • 6 cups of whole milk
  • Approximately 3 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon crushed cardamom
  • 2 tablespoons ghee or unsalted butter
  • Approximately 1 table sliced pistachios for garnish


  1. Grease a 6-inch plate and set aside.
  2. In a large, wide and heavy saucepan bring the milk to a boil over medium high heat. And let it boil for 2-3 minutes.
  3. Add lemon juice to the milk, it will begin to curdle. Use minimum amount of lemon juice to just start the curdling process and prevent the whey (milky water) from completely separating immediately.
  4. Boil for 5 minutes and remove approx. 1 ½ cups of the whey. This will help reduce the tartness from the cake.
  5. Continue to cook and stir occasionally until the milk is a grainy consistency and the whey is evaporated. This will take an additional 15-20 minutes.
  6. Add sugar and cardamom and keep stirring until the mixture starts coming together. This should take approximately 5 minutes.
  7. Lower the heat to medium and cook for another 4-5 minutes until mixture changes to a slightly golden brown color.
  8. Transfer mixture to the greased plate and press firmly into a square shape, approximately 1 inch high. As an option, sprinkle sliced pistachios on top.
  9. Let sit for at least an hour before slicing into individual pieces.


this wonderful dessert can be prepared ahead of time and stored at room temperature for a few days.

It is generally a few inches tall and has different shades of color throughout. However, this recipe will make an even colored cake that is approximately 1 inch thick. The taste of this Milk Cake is identical to what I have grown up enjoying as a delicacy in our home.

Popular Q&A

Looking for recipe of very specific Indian milk cake(kind of Burfi) made with milk and Evaporated cane sugar? | Yahoo Answers

The one I'm thinking of is basically dulce de leche cooked up a little thicker than usual. Put sweetened milk on stovetop and reduce, reduce, reduce. Don't raise above a simmer and stir frequently. Takes about four hours if I recall corectly. Then pour onto sheet pan, cool, and cut into 2x3 rectangles. Top each piece with pecan or pistachio. Nut dust can be added to the mix, and coconut sugar is a tasty variation on sugar or turbinado. Hope thats what you had in mind, sorry I forgot what they were called.
