Today I would like to share something very cute and funny about my son. He is 2 years old and a very naughty guy. He likes to imitate others especially his parents. He always observes and of-course disturbs me while I click pictures of food for my blog. Now he has started aping me by taking his toy camera and clicking snaps. Then he would take his toy laptop, press the blog button in it and he would shake his camera on the top of laptop. Then he would say he is putting the pictures in his blog :). We can't just stop laughing at his cute actions !!
Now coming to recipe...this is one of Nita Mehta's cookbook recipe which I had jotted down in my book. It's a basic sponge cake which is eggless version. The cake is so soft, moist and delicious. This is one cake recipe I guess you can never go wrong and it's so simple. You should try this and I am sure you will make this often.
What you need?
1.5 cups All Purpose flour
1 cup thick Yoghurt
3/4 - 1 cup Sugar
1/2 tsp Baking soda
1 1/4 tsp Baking powder
1/2 cup Oil
1.5 tsp Vanilla essence
1/4 - 1/2 cup Tutti Fruity mix (optional)
1 tbsp Milk (for brushing the top)
How to prepare?
Sieve flour and keep aside. Mix yoghurt and sugar until sugar gets dissolved completely. Add baking powder and baking soda to this, mix well. Leave it aside for 5 minutes. You can see bubbles appearing. Add vanilla essence and oil to this and mix thoroughly.
Now slowly add the flour in portions at a time to the above mixture. Whisk well until creamy and thick. Finally add the tutti fruity and mix well. The cake mix is ready now.
Preheat the oven to 400F. Grease a cake pan with oil. Pour the cake mix to this. Bake at 400F for 10 minutes and then lower the temperature to 350F, then bake for about 25-30 minutes or until a knife inserted at the centre of the cake comes out clean. Brush the milk on the top for nice polishing glaze about 10 minutes before the end time.
Allow the cake to cool for 10 minutes. Then cut into slices and enjoy this fabulous cake.
