Cakes do not require an expert to make them perfectly. Try out this simple recipe. It never fails!
1 cup All Purpose Flour
1 cup White Sugar (Powder it in a grinder)
1 cup Melted Butter
2 tbsp Vanilla Essence
3 tbsp baking powder
Sieve all purpose flour with baking powder. Beat eggs with sugar and butter till the mixture becomes fluffy. Now slowly mix flour in it taking care that no lumps are formed. Beat with a hand blender or spoon as much as you can! Add vanilla essence and beat more.
Now grease a baking dish and sprinkle some flour along the sides. Pour the mixture and bake for 4 minutes in a microwave and for 20-25 minutes in a conventional oven at 180-200 degrees. Keep checking in between.
When done, remove from oven and allow it to cool. Cut in desired pieces. You can add orange rind and 2-3 tbsp orange juice to make it an orange cake, or coffee, or chocolate to have your desired flavour.
