Butter Cake -RM # 2

As decided by the RM members,its got to be a sweet for the finale.I thought of making a cake and hence dropped a line jokingly saying that Sugar should be made the common ingredients for all;-).I wanted to make a butter cake after writing down the recipe a long time back.I had all the ingredients ready and I wanted to finish off the butter in the fridge after its not-so-happy-stay in nil electricity.

Its been a pleasure participating in the Recipe Marathon and I thank DK for coming up with something as spectacular as this.I wanted to prove to myself that I can accept a challenge and finish it too.Though the circumstances were not in my favour during the last few days,I have managed to tag along and willingly accept the late runner medal.I have enjoyed posting daily and it was real fun doing this as a great team.I thank all my fellow runners too…love you pals!!
This cake is my small gift for all of you!!

Recipe Marathon – Day 30-The grand Finale!!
Butter Cake


Maida – 2 cups
Baking powder – 2 tsp
Salt – ¼ tsp
Butter – ½ cup
Sugar – ½ cup
Eggs – 3
Vanilla essence – 1 tsp
Milk – 1 cup


Sift together maida,baking powder and salt twice or thrice.
Cream butter and sugar until fluffy.
Add in the eggs one by one and beat well.
Mix in the vanilla essence and beat well till it is incorporated.
Add the flour in batches alternating with milk.
Mix well till you get a smooth batter.
Preheat the oven to 180*C.
Grease a cake tin with some butter and dust with flour.
Pour the batter into the tin and bake at 180*C for 25-30 minutes,or till done.
I had some chocolate syrup in the fridge which I incorporated into the batter halway,but that is purely optional!!I loved the chocolatey taste in between..;-).I got some leftover batter with which I made some muffins,they came out well too.Overall a great cake,though it doesn’t look much pretty!!

And have a look at the final post of my dear marathon runners!!
