Apart from ofcourse my “bakeholism”, my son is the only motive for me to bake a cake. And as you know, these toddlers need variety and taste! I must say ,my little one is the best critic for whatever I cook! Children have a very sharp sense of smell and taste..Perhaps that explains their fuss about food , and their unique choices. This was well demonstrated by my toddler a few days ago ,when we had been out on a vacation at Himachal , and decided to carry cakes and biscuits for snacking on the way. I had already baked a regular sponge for him. But by the time it was time to leave,we were left with a few pieces, after my in laws happily feasted on those! My mother in law and I decided to replace those with a similar cake bought from the local bakery. And they seamlessly merged with the ones I made. But when the time came for Ayush , my fussy little one, he selectively ate only the pieces i baked ,leaving behind the ones bought from bakery! It was indeed a compliment , my son unknowingly gave me! Keeping in mind his choosy side and his exceptional tasting skills, I decided to make this rich Butter Cake ..I richer version of a regular vanilla cake.. though.a bit dense, but moist and yummily buttery!




  1. Grease the baking tin and lightly dust with flour. Preheat oven at 180 deg C.
  2. Beat softened butter with sugar till light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla essence and beat for 1-2
  3. Add the sifted flour to it ,alternately with the milk,beating continuously to form a smooth batter.
  4. Pour this batter in the cake tin and bake in the preheated oven for 25-35 mins ,or till the knife inserted at the center comes out clean and the cake when touched at the center springs back. Cool and demould.

Hi! I am Sonali, mom to a fast growing teenager and a homemaker.I love to cook, read and travel ( and in that order). I believe that travel keeps the cook ever so innovative. Each time I travel, I scourge the market places and eateries for some new ingredient or recipies. I believe that every type of cuisine has its own story to relate……One that’s fascinating.Being born and brought up in Mumbai which is often called “a melting pot of culinary delights” helped me explore and experiment with a wide range of cuisines.So come share with me the tang of lime, the bite of chilli, the fresh herbs, the crunch of raw veggies and experience the wide spectrum of textures and sharp flavours of different cusines.
