I normally make chocolate cake or fruit cake or some other flavoured cake and thus, this simple vanilla cake always take a back seat. And today when I baked it, first of all, my younger son Siddharth was all ga-ga for it. He liked it a lot and said was very much like Britannia Fruitcake. A compliment coming from someone who doesnâ€™t like anything except chocolateyâ€¦ be it chocolate cake or chocolate muffins or chocolate ice cream, means a lot.
Eggless and made with wheat flour but still very soft and spongy.
You can have it plain or make ice cream sundaes or puddings or Lamingtons or swiss rolls or do frosting and turn it into fresh fruit cake and many other things.

It is a very simple recipe, using ingredients easily available in your kitchen.I have used corn flour here but you can omit it if you don’t have it or add maida in place of it.
You can make this cake with all purpose flour also, in that case everything will remain same except the quantity of milk. You will be requiring approximately 2 tablespoon milk only.
This cake is oil based. I have always preferred oil-based cakes for two reasons. First of all, oil is always there in the kitchen whereas I have to arrange for butter. Secondly, oil-based cakes are more moist. Well, this is my perception, you can use butter in place of oil if you wish so.
You can bake this cake in Otg or Microwave Convection or on the gas stove.
