Back after a long break with Butter cake!!

Ive been in hibernation for a loooong time.. We relocated to a nearby city called Arcadia from Pasadena,the reason being my elder kid's education.
Arcadia boasts having one of the best school districts in California.

I like my  kitchen in this apartment  a lot cuz its bigger and it is well lit.Well lit means.... Brighter and better pictures for my blog:)

So coming to the recipe..It is one of the simplest tea cake.Rich,soft and moist and it tasted even better the next day.


All purpose flour - 1 1/2 cup

Baking powder - 3/4 tsp

Sugar - 1 cup(you can reduce to 3/4 cup if you want)

Melted Butter - 1/4 pound

Vanilla essence - 2tsp

Eggs - 2


Grease and flour a 9 inch round cake pan.
Preheat the oven to 350 deg F.
Mix the flour,baking powder.
In another pan mix the butter with sugar.Then add the eggs,vanilla essence.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix until just flour is incorporated into the wet ingredients.It would be lumpy.
Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and bake for about 30 to 35 minutes until a tester inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean and the cake springs up when touched.
The cake would be golden brown in color when done.
Allow it to cool completely.
