Microwave Milk Cake

This is a recipe from my mom’s friend Sharmishta who lives in Buffalo (NY). It's not exactly like milk cake in texture, but very close to it in look and flavour. The best part is it requires very few basic ingredients that are always at hand - milk powder, sugar, cream and ghee.
