Cakes are something I bake at least ones a week, may be more and never get bored of it. I have so many cake tins and silicone moulds that my mother tells me to open a store 😁. Fabfurnish.com is my first preferred site for buying these.
From many recipes I have for a cake, I will tell you the easiest one. My sister is fond of the cakes I bake but sadly she stays 1100 miles away from us. 😦 So whenever she comes here or we go to Kolkata, she and her friends get a treat of cakes. ;). The main problem I faced was that the cakes should stay moist, tasty and shouldn’t rot for 5-6 days without a refrigerator.( Since the climate here is hot and humid, it doesn’t last long.) That is why I went for this recipe. It is not very rich yet tasty.
3/4 cup water
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup oil
1 tbsp vinegar or lemon juice
1 tbsp vanilla extract
2 cups plain flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
A pinch of salt
1. Dissolve sugar and salt in water properly. Add vinegar and vanilla extract.
2. Fold in sieved flour, baking powder and soda and flavoring. Batter should be of ribbon consistency.
3. Pour into a greased pan less than 2/3rd. The cake will rise a lot because of soda and vinegar. Bake in a preheated oven at 180°c
Very easy, isn’t it?
Chocolate and vanilla marble cake. A trick to make your chocolate cake more rich is to boil cocoa powder in a bit of water, cool and use.
Orange cupcake with Nutella 😍. Instead of vinegar I added orange juice and zest.

Tastes heavenly when served with ice-cream or whipped cream 😀
