Adukku Cake does it sound different, yes it is different, you dont need an oven to bake this cake you can make this on the stove top. Adukku in Tamil means Layer. This cake has many layers thus this name. It is so spongy an has many many variations, You can add coco to make chocolate adukku cake, add nuts, tutti frutti etc, etc., You can also use it for making triffle puddings.
