Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 40 minutes
Serves: 4 servings
1½ cups All-Purpose Flour (Maida)
1 cup Curd (Plain Yogurt)
3/4 cup Granulated Sugar (or 1-2 tablespoons less)
1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
1 teaspoon Baking Powder
1/2 cup Cooking Oil (any smell-less oil like sunflower oil)
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract or Vanilla Essence
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees C (356 degrees F) for 10 minutes.
Take a baking pan. Grease entire surface of the pan with oil or melted butter using a brush.
Sprinkle some maida over it and tilt the pan in all directions so the maida covers the greased surface. Line the pan with a butter paper.
Sift 1½ cups all-purpose flour (maida) in a large bowl.
Add 1 cup plain curd and 3/4 cup sugar in another large bowl.
Whisk it properly until smooth. Add 1/ 2 tbsp baking soda and 1 tbsp baking powder.
Mix well and keep the mixture idle for 5 minutes.
Add 1/2 cup oil.
Add 1 teaspoon vanilla extract or vanilla essence and mix well.
Add previously sifted all-purpose flour( maida).
Mix well. Mix until it turns little smooth and no visible signs of white flour.
Pour batter into previously greased pan. Place it in the preheated oven and bake for 35-40 minutes at 180 C (356 F) until the top looks brown.
Remove the pan from the oven and insert a toothpick in the centre to check whether it is fully cooked or not. If it comes out clean, then it means it is cooked. If it does not, then cook for a few more minutes.
Let it cool for 15-20 minutes. Run a knife on sides of the pan. Place a plate on the pan and invert both pan and plate to remove the cake from the pan easily. Carefully remove the butter paper it will come out very easily.
The cake is ready. Either garnish with chocolate sauce or vanilla frosting and enjoy.
