Recipe type: From the Oven
Cuisine: Indian
Serves: 25
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 3 eggs (room Temp)
  • ½ cup butter (room temp)
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • ¾ tsp vanilla essence
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 pinches salt
  • ¼ cup milk (room temp)
  1. Using your electric mixer or using whisk, cream butter and sugar. Now add eggs one by one and run the mixer or whisk it after adding each egg. Make sure everything is mixed well.
  2. Add vanilla essence and yellow food color to it and mix it. In a big strainer or a sifter, put all purpose flour, baking powder, and salt. Sift it directly into the mixing bowl with butter and sugar.
  3. Mix it using the electric mixer or hand whisker until all combined. Do not over mix it. Now add the last ingredient in the list which is milk and mix it one last time. Pre heat the oven at 350F. Take a 8x8 baking pan. Cover the pan with cooking spray or butter and place parchment paper on the bottom of the pan. And apply butter or cooking spray on top again.
  4. Pour the batter into it and tap it to make sure its all evenly distributed in the baking pan. Once the oven is pre heated, place it in the oven and let it bake for 20-22 mins or until the tooth pick comes out clean when you do check it.
  5. Once done, take it out of the oven and let it sit for about 10 mins. Then turn the pan upside down to tap it to get the cake out of the baking pan. Pull off the parchment paper slowly and let it cool down completely on the wire rack. After it cools down, cut all edges on all 4 sides so you have a cleaner look when we cut them into slices. Now cut the cake into half and cut that 2 halves into ½ inch slices.
  6. Place them on to the baking tray on the parchment paper. Bake it at 300F for 20 mins on one side and turn them to bake on the other 20 mins on the other side. Once they are baked, pull it out and let it sit for a couple of mins and then place them on the wire rack to cool down.
