Instructions:

  • Grease the baking pan,(I used 8 inch round pan) with margarine and dust it lightly with flour.
  • Cream the sugar and margarine till it becomes lighter, fluffy and creamy.
  • Preheat Oven at 180 degree Celsius for at least 15 minutes.
  • Add the egg, one at a time, and mix at medium speed.
  • Add the vanilla flavour.
  • Mix all the dry ingredients and whisk or sieve together to ensure all the ingredients are well incorporated. (If you are using mixed fruit, add it into the flour )
  • Mix in the milk and flour in four intervals. if your mixer is small then use a big spatula to fold it in (milk, flour, milk, flour,….). (try not to over mix your batter as it will make the cake tough)
  • Put batter in baking pan and bake at 180 degree Celsius at the middle section of your oven for one hour.
  • The cake is done when a skewer comes out clean when inserted into the cake.
  • turn off the oven and let the cake cool in pan before transferring it to a cooling rack
  • Decorate or serve with fresh juice or ice cream, once it’s cooled.
