Simple Butter Sponge Cake

We have bid adieu to 2009 and welcomed 2010 with open hearts. I hope you all had rocking celebrations on new years eve and wish all of you get many more reasons to celebrate in 2010.  With this new year I am giving a new refreshing look to my blog. Hoping you all like it!!

We had a small get together at friend's home on new years eve. I made this butter sponge cake for it. I am a beginner in baking. I made this cake with all the basic ingredients.It is simple to make and still it is very yummy.


Ingredients:
1 cup maida
1 cup powdered sugar
3/4 cup butter
3 eggs
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp vanilla essence

Method:
  1. Sieve maida.
  2. Melt butter in microwave. 
  3. Add powdered sugar in melted butter. Whisk it for ten mins till it mixes properly.
  4. In separate bowl beat eggs for eight-ten minutes.
  5. Add these eggs in butter-sugar mixture. Stir this again for ten-fifteen minutes till uniform mixture is formed.
  6. Add vanilla essence and baking powder.
  7. Add 2 tbsp maida and mix well. Keep adding 2 tbsp maida at a time and whisking it properly. While stirring always stir in one direction only.
  8. Apply ghee to a baking bowl. Pour cake mixture in it. Preheat oven on 190 degree celcious ( 375 degree fahrenheit). Bake cake for 30 minutes.
Preparation time :  75 minutes
