Vanilla Cake

Though my parents were not here with us on their 35th Anniversary, I decided to bake this Vanilla Cake to keep my boys happy and in a celebratory mood. My 6 year old boys helped me, so we had a bit of fun doing this.

Maida/Refined Flour: 100gms
Powdered Sugar: 100gms
Vanilla Essence: 2 tsp
Baking Powder: 1tsp
Milk: 1/4 to 1/2 cup
Butter: 100gms
Egg whites: of 3 eggs


  • Pre-heat the oven to 175 degrees C
  • Sieve together the flour and baking powder.
  • Combine the butter and the powdered sugar till it becomes soft and creamy.
  • Next add the egg whites to it, and beat well.
  • Then, alternately, add the flour and the milk into the egg mixture. Start by adding the flour, and end by adding the flour. Mix well with a wooden spoon
  • Mix in the vanilla essence.
  • Pour the batter in a greased cake dish and bake at 175 degrees C for 45 minutes.
  • Prick a fork or a knife in when it is baking to see if it is done. If the fork or knife comes out clean, then the cake is done.
  • Transfer the cake on a wire rack to cool it.
