Mawa Pecan Bundt Cake

I had unsweetened khoya which I bought to make some North Indian gravies at home. Also I had some pecans at home. Though pecans resemble walnut, they can be differentiated from walnuts. Pecans are dark brown in colour and oblong shaped. I used these two ingredients and tried to make a cake. Since I had my newly bought bundt mould, I used that to make this cake.


All Purpose flour – 1 1/4 cups

Sugar – 1/2 cup+ 3 tbsp

Khoya/ Mawa(unsweetened) – 1 cup

Milk – 1 1/4 cup

Baking powder – 2 tsp

Baking soda – 1/2 tsp

Pecans – 1/2 cup

Unsalted butter – 1/2 cup

Cardamom powder- 1/4 tsp

  • Bring the khoya|mawa to room temperature.
  • Blend the khoya with milk and butter in a mixie.
  • Sieve the flour with baking soda and baking powder.
  • Add sugar, pecans, cardamom to the khoya milk mixture and blend it well.


  • Now add the blended mixture with the sifted flour .
  • The cake batter is ready to bake.


  • Pre-heat the oven at 180 degree celsius for 5 minutes.
  • Grease the bundt cake pan and transfer this cake mixture to the pan and bake it for 40 minutes or until the inserted toothpick comes out clean.
  • Allow this to cool and after 10 mins carefully invert the pan and take out the cake.


  • Cut it into pieces and serve.
