1 Cup Butter (226 grams)
2 Cups Granulated Sugar (400 grams)
3 Cups All-purpose flour/Maida (384 grams)
4 large Eggs
Milk – 1 cup
Baking powder – 3 teaspoon
Vanilla Essence – 2 teaspoon
Salt – 1 teaspoon
Nutmeg – 1/4 teaspoon powdered (optional)
Ensure all the ingredients are at room temperature.
Prepare 8 inch baking tins with parchment paper.
Add salt, baking powder and nutmeg powder to the flour and sieve the mix few times and set aside.
Pre heat the oven at 180° C
In a mixing bowl, add the softened butter and powdered granulated sugar.
Mix the butter and sugar till soft and fluffy.
Add eggs, one at a time, and continue with the creaming process. Repeat adding all the eggs. Scrape down the side of the mixing bowl in between and mix until all the eggs are totally incorporated and you have a very soft and fluffy mix. Add vanilla essence and mix well.
Start adding the flour mix and milk , little at a time, say in 4 turns. Gently fold the mix, till the flour is fully incorporated.
In case the batter is too thick, add 1 table spoon of milk (at room temperature) at a time and fold the mix.
Pour the cake batter into the prepared baking tin.
Bake in the pre heated oven for 35 to 45 minutes, or till a wooden skewer inserted in the center comes out clean and dry.
Remove the cake from the oven and let it rest for 5 to 10 Minutes. Unmould the cake and let it cool completely on a wire rack. Slice with a serrated bread knife and enjoy.
