Notes :

1.You can use melted butter at room temperature instead of Oil,but mix while adding sugar.
2.You can add any flavourless cooking oil,it wont affect the taste.
3.I bake 9”inch cake,if you are going to bake smaller size just reduce the preheating time to 10mins and cook for 30mins.
4.You can also use this mixture for cup cakes.
5.If you want your cake to be brown colour on top,just STOP the oven and brush the cake with 1tbsp of milk.
6.You can also use butter paper / parchment paper in the tray before pouring the cake mixture.

You can bake this cake using cooker also.
Preheating :Heat a cooker pan with a steel / aluminium plate inside,close the lid (dont use the gasket and whistle vent for this baking) with medium flame for 5mins.
Cake Baking :Then place the butter greased aluminium tray with batter inside the cooker without touching the sides.Close the lid.Heat it for 30-40mins.Its better to use 1/3 of the above recipe as a small cake.
----For the steel plate ,i used the plate which comes along with the rice cooker.If you are not having,then place dosa tawa,under the cooker and directly place the batter tray to the cooker pan.
