Tea cake (Vanilla cake)


Baking is a fun. It gives me little happiness to see my cake rising inside the oven & soft when baked. Only during weekends, myself & pravin have tea together and spend more time in talking & having fun with our son. Tea with a piece of cake is the perfect combination to spend our best part of the day.

Ingredients :
  1. All purpose flour - 200 gms
  2. Sugar - 250 gms
  3. Butter - 125 gms
  4. Eggs- 6 nos
  5. A pinch of salt
  6. Baking powder - 2 tsp

Method :

  • Grease & dust the 26cm baking pan with butter & flour. Preheat the oven at 175 C.
  • Seperate the eggs. Whisk the egg whites & salt till stiff. Gradually add the sugar & whisk continously.
  • Beat the egg yolks & butter till light & pale yellow.
  • Sieve the flour & baking powder. Add them to the egg yolk mixture.
  • Finally, fold the egg white mixture to the above batter very gently.
  • Bake at 175 C for 40 min or until done.

Perfect with tea.
