Everybody loves cakes. Now a day, cakes are not only tasty but our beloved bakers have found different ways to decorate it too. Fondant, cream cakes, buttercream frosting and what not. But I still remember the plain cakes which I used to eat straight away from my mom’s kitchen. Plain, simple yet delicious.
If you are fan of plain cake too, I have got a just a perfect recipe for you. Simple plain cake, a hot cup of tea, favorite book and beautiful rains. The best combination ever. So, let’s start baking.
First here is the list of ingredients:
- Oil: 50 grams
- Butter: 45 grams
- Milk: 250 grams (Room temperature)
- Vinegar: 2 tsp
- Condensed milk: 250 grams
- Vanilla essence: 2 tsp
- Plain flour: 200 grams
- Baking soda: ½ tsp
- Baking powder: 2 tsp
- Powdered sugar: 40 grams (As I do not like too sweet cake, I don’t add it. I find the sweetness obtained by condensed milk is enough)
I have deliberately given all measurements in grams (even for liquid ingredients).
It is very easy to make this cake.
As I promised you all, this time I have managed to take photos of each step.
Take Butter and Oil in a ball. Mix it together until well combined. You can make use of electric beater but it’s not compulsory. I used wire whisk.
Add condensed milk. and mix it for at least 4-5 minutes with wire whisk. If you want to add powdered sugar for additional sweetness, you can add it in this step.
Add Vinegar and vanilla essence into the milk and keep it aside. Also sift your dry ingredients together (Flour + Baking Powder + baking Soda).
Now mix dry ingredients and milk mixture into your Oil, butter and condensed milk mixture into 3 batches. Do not over mix.
Take a cake tin and line it with butter.
Now put the cake batter in the tin. Tap the tin twice.
Bake on 165 degrees for 30 minutes (I use convection mode for baking). If you are using regular over, bake it for 170 degrees for 35-40 minutes.
My final product was this:
Isn’t it amazing?
I will be posting another plain cake recipe in coming days. Till then Keep BAKING!
