Simple Cake Recipe

Today I thought I would kind of carry on with my cake theme. I have shared some of my decorating tips, and now I am passing on my favourite cake recipe. Its so easy to cook and comes out fab every time.

2  1/2 cups of self raising flour
2  1/2 cups of sugar
3/4 cup of vegetable oil
2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 eggs
1 cup of milk

Put all the things into a bowl and either mix with your mixer or by hand. There is no messing so it is dead easy. Don't over work it !
I just grease and dust with flour my tin or you can line with paper.

This amount will make either two 9 inch cakes or 24 cup cakes.
cook on around 150 for about 1 -1 1/2 hr fir bigger cake and 20 mins for cupcakes but test and make sure your knife comes out clean.

You can leave it like this or add fruit as you want, it always comes out fab.

These are just a couple of cakes I have made with this same cake recipe. I would love to see what you make so please share
