Simple White Cake

Simple White Cake
Yummy, Spongy Cake

Last Saturday, I was taking a nap after lunch. Suddenly a touch of sweet, aromatic and delicious smell awakened me.  I instantly felt hungry! I rushed downstairs to find out that my daughter made a delicious cake to surprise me as that day was my birthday. She made the cake without taking anybody’s help. It turned out so soft and moist and of course delicious. She even took snaps for my blog. Isn’t she cute?

Simple White Cake

Here is the recipe:
Recipe Source: All Recipes
Original recipe makes 12 cupcakes or 1- 9x9 inch pan but my daughter took a small heart shaped pan that didn’t hold all the batter. So she poured the remaining batter into a cupcake pan that gave her 16 small cupcakes. (See the picture above)


Ingredients:
Simple White Cake
  • 1 ½ cups All Purpose Flour
  • ½ cup Milk
  • 1 ¾ tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 cup White Sugar
  • ½ cup Butter
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • A handful of Semi-sweet Chocolate Chips (My daughter added these as her own special touch)
Preparation:
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Meanwhile, grease a 9x9 inch pan or line a muffin pan with paper liners.
  3. In a bowl, cream the sugar and butter together.
  4. Then crack the eggs, add them to the bowl, beat well and stir in the vanilla.
  5. Combine flour and baking powder, add to the above mixture and mix well.
  6. Finally stir in the milk and chocolate chips and mix well.
  7. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. If using muffin pan spoon in the batter.
  8. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes in the preheated oven.  For cupcakes, bake 20 to 25 minutes.
  9. The cake is done when a toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the cake and the cake springs back when touched.
  10. Remove the cake from the oven and leave aside until it becomes completely cold.
  11. Then cut into pieces and enjoy.
  12. Yummy!
