Hi Sara, I want to try this today, but i donot have milk powder, what can i substitute ? Can i add more liquid milk?


swapna rachapalli said...

Hi Sara,

I donot have milk powder, can i add more milk to substitute it ? If yes how much more milk i should add.


Saraswathi Tharagaram said...

Hi Swapna, Milk powder is main ingredient in this recipe to achieve fluffiness and taste. I hope extra milk wont work here for this recipe instead of milk powder.

Or you can follow the recipe in below link by replacing cocoa powder with same amount of flour and mango pulp with strawberry puree..

Try and Please share your thought..
