  • One Measure of White-Butter – Full scoop
  • Two Measures of Powdered-sugar
  • Three Measures of Flour (Maida)
  • Three Eggs for soft-cake and Four eggs for spongy-cake
    (if you want slightly thick, use only TWO Eggs)
  • Half Measure of fruit (Tuty-fruity) mixed with Two Tea-spoon full Almond Essence
  • One Tea Spoon Baking powder


1.     ADD butter and sugar in a round-vessel and mix them well using a wooden spoon for three to four minutes till you see a bubble. (Electric-Blender also can be used)

2.     ADD Egg and mix them well for five minutes, till you see the bubble

3.     ADD chocolate-powder or/and sugar-syrup mix them well till you are satisfied.

4.     Now add the flour, cup by cup and stir it well and ADD Baking-Powder and Almond Essence mixed fruit also. Stir it for 5 to 6 minutes

5.     Pour them in the cake-Mould and place them in the center of the baking-oven and bake it for 50 to 55 minutes in the conventional oven at the standard temperature like 325-350 F.

  • ” The strong smell of the cake is an indication of the baked cake”

6.     Pierce the cake with the thin stick or metal piercing and check the inside portion of the cake whether it is fully cooked.

  • If the tip of the pierced stick is sticky, then bake it for another 10 minutes.
  • Otherwise, tip of the pierced stick is not sticky and then switch-off the OVEN.
  • After two or three minutes open the oven and take the bake-mould with the clean cloth.

7.    Leave the cake for 5 minutes and then cut them into pieces to serve. (It is tasty to eat it hot but not advisable. Ha! Ha!! Ha!!!)

Cake Made @ Home


  • If you use aluminium-mould, first spread oil or fat or butter inside the cake-mould container with fingers, then put some flour and turn and shake the mould to make the flour spread all around cake-mould container. Then, turn upside-down the cake-mould container to remove the loose flour out of the container before you pour the cake-mix. This helps to remove the baked cake easily out of the container.
  • If you use cooker for Baking in the GAS-Burner (Stove),

¨     Please do it in MINIMUM flame.

¨     First, HEAT the Cooker in the full flame and the SAND inside it, then bring-down the flame to minimum.

¨      Then place any aluminium PLATE, smaller than the cake mould.

¨      Then place the cake mould and bake it in MINIMUM flame.

¨      Cover the cooker, but  “DO NOT PUT THE COOKER WHISTLE”.

All the Best & Please tell me the result of your baking . ! !
