April 3rd was my MIL’s birthday and I baked this cake for her. This was the first time I was baking a cake with eggs and I was glad to see the end result – it was soft, fluffy and tasted just great. (Please overlook the cracks on the cake. No matter what I always get it.). It just took 15 minutes of preparation time. We polished off half the cake in less than 5 minutes 🙂
There are many blogs that have this cake recipe, but I followed Divya’s blog. She has put step by step images to assemble the cake. Thanks Divya!!
2 cups All Purpose Flour,
1 tbsp baking powder,
3 large eggs,
1 cup sugar,
1 cup milk,
1 cup oil,
1 tsp vanilla essence,
2 tbsp coco powder
Mix All Purpose Flour and baking powder together, sieve and keep aside.
Beat 3 eggs and sugar till fluffy. (It took me approx 6 to 7 minutes).
Mix in the milk, oil and essence.
Pre heat the oven at 175 degree C for 10 minutes.
Now start mixing the flour in the above mixture. Mix well and break all the lumps.
Divide the mixture into 2 halves.
In one mixture add coco powder and mix well. Keep the other mixture as is.
Take a greased baking pan and pour one ladle of white cake batter in the center. Let it spread on its own. Do not tilt the pan to spread it.
Now put one ladle of coco cake batter on top of the white batter and let it spread on its own.
Again put white cake batter and coco batter alternately till all the batter is over.
Bake the cake till a knife inserted in the cake comes out clean (In my oven it took approx 25 minutes)
