The vivid variety of desserts in Indian culture has its own unique flavor and taste. Ghee or clarified butter is a major ingredient of all of them that solidifies the mixture. Seven cup cake is almost similar to the dessert 'Mysorepak' except for some ingredients. My sister is well-versed in cooking and she comes up making a lot of sweets and cakes. I try to learn from her even if I stand much farther from her in the matter of cooking.

Seven cup cake is a delicious Indian dessert easier to make. All the ingredients are common and easily available in the market. The name ‘seven cup’ is derived from the fact that this dessert is prepared out of seven cups of ingredients exactly. Let’s have a look at this recipe.

      I like how you photographed the seven cups of ingredients and then proceeded to show us the mixing of ingredients and the final result in photos. This sounds interesting and very sweet with the sugar and the coconut. Up, interesting and will share.
