This was my first experiment in baking..
Rather than ordering cake for birthday like every year, tried hand at baking one at home. Turned out tasteful and made my day. And the best part is the process is pretty simple. Here is the recipe
150 gms maida
100 gms butter
100 gms sugar powder
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla essence
4-5 oreo cookies
chocolate icing (as you like)
Sieve maida with baking powder, beat butter, sugar, eggs and then maida. Add vanilla essence.
Spread a teaspoon of butter or oil over the surface of cake pan. Sprinkle some flour all over, and tap out the excess. Pour the cake batter into the prepared cake pan. Top it with oreo cookies in the end. Pre-heat the oven first. Bake for about 25-30 minutes on 180c, or till a tooth pick inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean.
