Dulce de Leche Egg less Microwave Cake

This morning looking at the food events for the rest of the month, I came across Cooking 4 all season Srivalli having a MEC:Cakes for the month of April. I decided to experiment with a cake recipe I came across and had no clue as to how it was going to turn out. As for me personally, I am not a microwave person. I restrict it to warming food and liquids and so it was an adventure when I started out modifying Usha Srikumar's Eggless cake recipe. When I started out it looked just like a normal cake batter but when the cake came out of the oven it looked like a very pale cake.I got curious about the taste, it was chewy, pretty low on sugar,dry and had no flavor and to put it in the words of my mama Kittu it was"colorless, odorless, tasteless!" I was not too happy with the end result. Wondered if I must have stuck to the recipe. Since I used condensed milk in the base recipe I thought maybe by adding some evaporated milk could make it moist. The end result was something super moist and tasty. I was absolutely thrilled when my 4 year daughter said "Amma its yummy". I could not help but smile.

6. Place a wax paper in the bowl and put the cake back.

7. Mix evaporated milk and the remaining condensed milk and pour it evenly over the cake.

8. I would like to mention that the corners of the cake are more chewy than the center, so add more of the milk in the 4 corners.

9. Cover the glass bowl and place it in the fridge for sometime.

10. I placed it for 3 hours and by that time most of the milk had been absorbed.

11. To me it tasted like any Indian sweet made with condensed milk and was to my surprise pretty moist and tasty.
