All purpose flour  or maida – 1cup
Baking powder – ¾ tsp
Salt – ¼ tsp
Egg  - 2
Powdered sugar – ¾ cup
Butter – 50 gram [Melted]
Milk – 75ml
Vanilla essence – 1 tsp

Note : Butter and egg should be at room temperature


Preheat your oven to 220 degree Celsius for 10 minutes.
Brush your baking pan with butter and dust some flour all around. This helps to take out your baked cake easily from baking pan.keep it aside.
Take a mixing bowl, place sieve over it and add all purpose flour,baking soda,salt and shift it to avoid any lumps. If you see any lumps in it just break them down using spatula.

Keep the shifted flour aside.

Take another mixing bowl and break egg into it. Using electric whisk, beat the egg for few minutes till they fluffy.
Now add sugar and beat again for few minutes. Beating helps to make your cake really soft and spongy.

Once your egg and sugar mixture is fluffy, add milk, melted butter [at room temperature ], vanilla essence and ix it well until all ingredients are well combined.

Now add the shifted dry ingredients [ All purpose flour,baking powder and salt] into the egg mixture and mix them slowly using spatula until well combined.

Dont mix the batter too much as it may form large holes like texture in your cake.

Once you are done with cake batter, pour  them into the greased baking pan, level it and tap gently to make it even.

Place the baking pan into your preheated oven and bake for 15 minutes.

To check whether the cake is done or not, insert knife or tooth pick into the cake and if it comes out clean, then your cake is done. Other wise bake for few more minutes until it is done.

Transfer the baked cake into cooling rack to cool it down. Serve and enjoy with family or friends.

As this recipe carries 1 cup flour you will get 1 inch cake while using 20 inch round baking pan. Increase the measurment of ingredients if you want to ake big size cake or use small inch size baking pan.

You could also use your favourite frosting over it.
