Butter cake

Preparation Time : 15 minutes | Cooking Time : 45 minutes

Plain flour (Maida) – 1 1/2 cups
Baking powder – 3/4 tsp
Baking soda – 1/4 tsp
Salt – a pinch
Eggs - 3
Unsalted butter – 125 grams
Milk - 1/2 cup
Caster sugar – 1 1/4 cup
Vanilla essence – 1 tsp

Preheat oven to 180 C for 10 minutes before baking. Grease a deep 8 inch round cake tin. Line base with baking paper, beat ingredients in a bowl on a low speed with electric mixer until just combined. Beat on medium speed until mixture is smooth. The batter might look curdled but it is fine. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan.

Bake the cake in the oven for 40 to 45 mins until the inserted skewer comes out clean. Let it cool for sometime and then turn it over a server plate. Do not cut until it is cooled down.
