Simple Vanilla cake

Its Christmas Season !!! and I thought of baking this easy and simple cake. I tried this for the first time when I bought my new microwave oven and it came out reasonably well. I know plum cakes are the season's favorite, but this vanilla cake was really my baby step in cake making.

Vanilla cake is a very popular cake. Even though egg is not added this cake is soft and fluffy.


  1. All purpose flour- 120gms
  2. Vanilla essence- 1tsp
  3. Butter- 40gms
  4. Baking powder- 1tsp
  5. Milkmaid- 130gms
  6. Milk- 1/4cup
  7. Baking soda- 1/4tsp


  1. Preheat the oven to 170 degrees C
  2. Sieve the flour, baking powder and soda in a bowl.
  3. Beat butter, vanilla essence and milkmaid well. Add the flour and beat well.
  4. Add milk and mix.
  5. Grease the baking bowl and pour the cake batter into it.Pat the bowl containing batter so that the batter settles well inside the bowl and becomes free of air particles inside the batter.
  6. Bake the cake in pre heated oven for 30 minutes.The baking may take less or more time and hence be watchful.
  7. Once the cooking is done, allow the cake to cool completely.
  8. Decorate the cake as you wish. Garnishing with whipping cream, icing sugar etc. goes well with the texture of this cake.
