All purpose flour- 1.25 cups
Sugar- 3/4 cup
Baking powder- 1.25tsp
Baking soda- 1/2 tsp
Salt- a pinch or 1/4 tsp
Curd/yogurt- 1cup beaten
Cooking oil- 1/2 cup
Vanilla extract- 2tsp
In a big bowl, mix powdered sugar with the curd.
Add Baking powder and Baking soda and stir lightly.
Keep aside for 5 minutes till it gets frothy.
Add oil to it and mix gently.
Slowly add(don’t dump in at once) in sieved flour( while sieving maida add salt to it). Mix gently.
Preheat oven at 350 F. Place parchment paper, grease your cake tin.
Now pour batter., and bake for 15-20 minutes. Cover it with foil, this will prevent from cracks, also you get flat top cake.
Bake further for 20-25 mins.
Keep looking for brown spots on the cake and check with toothpick if it comes out clean means your cake is done.
Take it out. Don’t unmold right away. Let it cool for 10 minutes and then unmold your cake. That’s the way I do and I get perfect cake every time I bake.
Tip- use room temperature curd. Make sure it’s not sour though
