Vanilla Cake Recipe


 

Ingredients:

  • All purpose flour – 2 cups
  • Baking powder – 1 ¼ tsp
  • Baking Soda – ¾ tsp
  • Salt – ½ tsp
  • Sugar – 1 ½ cups
  • Oil – 1 cup ( I used sunflower oil)
  • Eggs – 2
  • Vanilla essence – 1 ½ tsp
  • Butter Milk/ Curd – 2/3 cup
  • Milk – 1/2 cup

 

(Note: 1 Cup = 250 ml.

When ever you are mixing for the cake with hand or hand mixer, you should mix in one direction only to get soft cakes.

The consistency of butter milk should be same as that of dosa batter. It should not be thin

All Ingredients should be at room temperature. Make sure egg, buttermilk/curd etc to be kept out of fridge so that it comes to room temperature

Make sure your oven settings are correct, else cakes wont come proper even though recipe is correct)
