Recipe sharing!

I have decided to share the recipe i used for the birthday cake.  Its quite useful especially when you want to use plastic icing or fondant to cover the cake; the cake is nice and firm to hold the weight.

For those of you who would like to share some recipes, please be my guest:) 

Basic vanilla cake

Baking time-45-60 minutes
Oven temperature- 180 degrees

-          120g (130ml) butter
-          110g (185ml) castor sugar
-          7ml vanilla essence
-          2 large eggs
-          240g (440ml) cake flour
-          10ml baking powder
-          125ml milk

Beat the butter until light.  Add the castor sugar and beat well.  Add the vanilla essence and then add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.

Sift the flour, baking powder and a pinch of salt together.  Fold into the butter mixture alternately with the milk.

Spoon the mixture into a greased and lined 22cm round baking tin.  Bake in a preheated oven for 45 minutes until a skewer comes out clean.  Cool in the tin for about ten minutes, then remove and cool completely on a wire rack.
