I was checking out some blogs today, when I stumbled upon this recipe over at Linda's blog. I figured what the heck, I may as well give it a try.
Easy Plain Cake
1 1/2 cups self raising flour
3/4 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
5oz butter, melted
Sift flour and salt into a mixing bowl. Add all other ingredients. Using a fork for mixing (I actually used a wire whisk, it was easier), combine all ingredients well.
Grease and line with greaseproof paper, a 22-23 cm (9") ring microwave safe container. Now the only dish I had was this silicone container I bought when we were in the States, its a bit big, but figured it would do. Pour batter into dish.
Microwave on HIGH 4 minutes. Stand 5 minutes. Turn out remove paper and cool.
Ice with your favourite icing. I used icing/confectioners sugar and flavoured coffee creamer, couldn't think of anything to use???
Now have to admit, I have had better cakes, however I have had a lot worse over the years. For the speediness and convenience, this one wins hands down. I will be making this again and again.
So thanks again Linda, pop over and see her here.
Just had a thought, to make a chocolate cake, substitute a couple of tablespoons of flour for cocoa.........haven't tried that, but it should work.
