Bakery Style Ghee Cake

Bakery Style Ghee Cake

One of the easiest cakes to prepare at home with no advanced equipments, not even an oven. Ghee Cake is so soft and melt in mouth with the aroma filling your house, that no one will be able to resist to wait till the cake cools, well that is always here in my case. Well, my brother even mistakes it for store/ bakery-bought, as it's that perfect and luscious, just like the ones you get from bakery. 

My girl literally did not even spare the crumbs of this delicious aromatic Ghee cake. Unlike usual recipes I not only use ghee, but use a little amount of vegetable oil, so that the cake stays tender and moist far longer that cakes that only use Ghee. You may completely use only ghee, it is completely upto you.

Ghee cakes makes a great pair with tea or coffee, perfect for evening snacking. The recipe is so simple that even little kids can prepare this cake without any difficulty. Once you add your flour, just make sure to mix well and that there are no lumps in the cake batter. Use powdered sugar, so that it's easier to cream the sugar and Ghee and combines well. I have demonstrated how to bake the cake in a pan, using a stand, you just need to preheat your wide pan, place a trivet or a small steel bowl and place the loaf pan or cake pan lined with butter paper and the Ghee Cake batter. Allow to cook for 35-45 minutes until toothpick inserted comes out clean.

Let's prepare this easy-peasy Ghee cake!


  • 1/3 cup Clarified Butter/ Ghee*
  • 1 cup Powdered Sugar
  • 1/4 Cup Vegetable oil*
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Essence
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1 Cup All Purpose Flour
  • 1 tsp Baking powder 
  • 1/4 Cup Milk


  1. In a bowl, add Ghee, vegetable oil and powdered sugar and mix well to form a creamy paste.

  2. Next add in vanilla essence and add 1 egg at a time and mix well.

  3. Next, place a sieve and add flour and baking powder and sieve carefully, mix well.
  4. Finally, pour the milk and combine .
  5. Now grease a loaf pan, or a cake pan with some cooking oil and place the butter pan and pour in your Ghee Cake batter.

  6. Give the pan a couple of taps and bake in a wide pan (by placing a small steel bowl or trivet, preheated for 5- 10 minutes ) or in oven, (for oven 180 deg C). Bake for 35- 45 minutes, until skewer inserted comes out clean. 

  7. After around 20 minutes of cooling, scrape the sides using a butter knife, and flip onto a board and remove the butter paper and flip, allow to cool completely.
  8. Once the Ghee Cake cools down, slice the Ghee Cake into desired shape and enjoy with a cup of tea or coffee.


You may completely avoid the vegetable oil and use only ghee if that case, use 1/2 cup ghee.
I used a portion of vegetable oil, so that the ghee cake stays moist for longer.
