If you are a beginner in baking and want to surprise your family or loved ones with minimal time and simple ingredients, then this recipe is for you!

I had a long time wish to bake a simple cake with fuss free steps, and this was my first ever tried recipe which worked out like a magic! As I was a beginner with baking I had a whole lot of doubts about cookware to use, and was so hesitated to start.

But, don’t worry I have sorted out some tips for you! Just skip them all if you aren’t the beginner and knows well about baking! So here is something for you which I learnt in the due process,

  • An Oven and microwave are always different.
  • I used a Circular glass baking try for this recipe, you may also try baking tins.
  • Read your instruction manual carefully before using the cookware, because most of us don’t have that habit and Each microwave differs from the other.
  • Always don’t fill the cake batter till the brim because as the flour rises during baking it will cause it to spill and make a mess inside.
  • Always grease the bottom of the baking try.
  • Baking Powder and Baking sodas are different.
  • Caster sugar and Powdered sugars are different. Powdered sugars are very fine form of sugar.

* Remember that vegetable oil or any other oil use for baking will leave its flavor in your baked product. If you want a flavor, use flavored oil or else just use butter or unflavored ones.
