Bake Your Own Cake

Updated on March 20, 2013

Cake is a delicious and healthy food. It is popular in almost all part of the world. If you have a oven then try it now!


  1. Flour 1 cup
  2. Powdered sugar 1 cup
  3. Egg 3 no
  4. Backing powder 1½ tsp
  5. Backing soda ½ tsp
  6. Butter 100 gm
  7. Vanilla essence 1 tsp


  1. Take the butter (melted) in a mixing bowl
  2. Add sugar and mix well
  3. Add egg (one at atime) and mix it.
  4. Add baking soda and backing powder and mix well
  5. Add flour and mix well (Don’t add all the flour at a time, take small quantity, mix it and then add more).
  6. Add vanilla and mix again
  7. When the batter is prepared, grease the backing bowl and pour the batter in to it.
  8. Preheat the oven
  9. Set the temperature to 1800 C
  10. Bake till the top layer become brown. You can also inspect the cake to see whether it is done or not by inserting the oven stick into the cake. If the batter sticks to the stick it means the cake is not yet done properly.
  11. Once the cake is done, leave it for some time to allow cooling.
  12. Remove from the backing bowl
  13. You can have an icing on it, otherwise cut it into pieces and serve.
