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