  1. very nice...cake was so yummy that it got over in first 5 minutes..need to double the measurements next time :-)-kavita

  2. Which of the four steps did you use the milk powder as its in the ingredients list but not in the actual instructions??

    1. milk powder is a dry ingredient so it is used with flour. always remember as a thumb rule for cake making sift all dry ingredients and add to wet ingredients.
      sugar and fat is creamed or whisked to incorporate air and make cake lighter

    2. Thank you for your reply...I noticed that you have now updated step 1 with the milk powder added in when sieving the flour, bicarbonate soda and baking powder. :-)

  3. which measurements have you used .....250ml cup or 200 mlcup

  4. Does diff in use of butter show the diff in color of the cake from inside. Two of my sisters went to the same baking class but one had a whiter cake than the other. I always wonders why the diff but never bothered to ask them. It was 25 years back.
    Hope u can help me find the ans.
    ( I liked the whiter one and it was denser as far as I remember)

    1. yes it will most certainly do ... if u use white butter u will have whiter cake and if u use yellow butter u will get a yellow colored cake. also the use of too much vanilla essence, can change the color.
      h ope this helps

    2. Thanks rajul,

      Shall try white butter:)
