Kidz Korner – Milo Cake (back to school treat!)

Milo is a very popular drink in Singapore. It’s chocolate and malt powder mix and can be mixed with hot or cold water or milk. It’s very popular mostly in the neighbourhood roti prata joints, where you can order Milo tower, which is about 2 liters!

My little nephew likes Milo a lot. He turned 12 last month and he requested for Milo cake for his birthday. As he was not in town for his birthday, I baked this cake just before he got back, so that he could enjoy his belated birthday cake baked by his aunt, moi! 😊
