So, I was craving some homemade cake. And what better way to enjoy it than for a double celebration- B&P’s second wedding anniversary and Superman Sachin’s first double century in ODI cricket.
I had to celebrate it with the perfect ingredients for happiness: flour, eggs, vanilla, and sugar. The result: phenomenal! This cake tastes of vanilla and is studded with walnuts and raisins.
Here are the ingredients and the recipe:
1 cup flour
1 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups castor sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 extra large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
50 gms coarsely chopped walnuts
50 gms raisins
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease and flour a 12-cup Bundt pan. In a bowl, sift the flour, baking powder and salt and set aside.
In a mixing bowl, beat eggs till they are fluffy. Add the flour and mix well. Alternate mixing dry and wet ingredients. Next to add is the vegetable oil followed by sugar. You can also use a regular blender or cake mixer. Add the vanilla extract. Mix well. Scrape the cake batter into the prepared pan. Dust the walnuts and raisins with some dry flour. Top them on the cake batter. Bake for approximately one hour.
To check if its done, insert a knife or a toothpick in the cake. If the center comes out clean you know its done.
There is nothing better that the aroma of fresh baked cake filling up your kitchen and house…and your tummy!
On that note, I hear a little voice inside me saying- Give me another slice! I guess that voice is only going to get louder and louder from here…
