A Light, mildly sweet Flavourful cake that will remind you of ‘Meetha Paan Beeda'( Sweet Paan). I had baked this cake for my sister-in-law’s birthday as she and her family are very fond of paan flavour and it was so much enjoyed by her and all of us.
The recipe is quite simple with no fancy ingredients.
I am so happy and excited to share this special’ Paan Cake ‘ recipe with all of you. A treat for all paan lovers !!
