Horlicks Cookie Cake


Now this recipe here is the one I have truly created, if there is such a thing. This woman baked some soft chewy cookies, shared the recipe with me, I baked those cookies with whole wheat flour and they turned out amazing. Next I know I am tinkering with the proportions and adding random stuff to the batter to give it the extra maltiness and crunch.

After a couple of tries comes out this Horlics cookie batter which can be baked into a thin sheet cake or baked in a pie pan or soft baked into cookies. I prefer the thin sheet cake version.

Horlicks Cookie Cake

What you will need :

  • 1 cup butter, melted (I use Amul salted butter)
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 and 1/2 cup All purpose flour (Maida)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/3 cup Horlics powder
  • 2 tsp Vanilla essence
  • 150 grams of chopped chocolate (see notes)

What to do :

  1. Take melted butter in a bowl and add the brown sugar and granulated sugar. Whisk well till it is all combined together.
  2. Add the eggs, one at a time, whisking after each addition.
  3. Add the Horlics and vanilla essence and combine.
  4. In another bowl sift together maida and baking soda.
  5. Add this to the butter and eggs mixture in batches and fold it in with a rubber spatula.
  6. Add chopped chocolate and combine well.
  7. Pre-heat oven to 170 C. Butter and line the bottoms with parchment paper of two pie pans or a brownie tray or two 9 inch cake round cake pans.
  8. Bake the batter for 15-20 mins till it is crispier on the outside and a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean.
  9. Let it cool in the tray for 10 mins before removing and then let it cool on a wire stand for 10 minutes before cutting.
  10. Top it up with some whipped cream before serving.

Notes :

  1. You can use either baking chocolate chips or chocolate chunks. I love the way Dairymilk melts into the batter while baking making it gooey and crisp at the same time.
  2. If you are using unsalted butter, add a pinch of salt to bring out the flavours.
  3. You can very well use this batter to make cookies. Freeze it for 20 mins and then make balls of 2 tablespoon batter and bake them on a tray as cookies.
