lazy cooks butter cake

I seriously need to meet Mr. Kapil Sibal and tell him his idea of making education stress free for the children has worked.................my kids are in a school which has adopted the system proposed by him and they are completely STRESS FREE.They have their exams.............their finals if you please..but looking at them you aren't going to think that....heck ..even right now..they are out playing with their other stress free friends.....I in the meantime(I belong to the old school...of studying..when there are exams)am going "greyer" by the second,my blood pressure is up and MY stress levels are through the roof!...........but not the kids...they are happy..not to worry!
I decided that the only thing that's going to help me is to find a new recipe for butter cake....so after looking through the recipes on the net...this particular one seemed just right.this is the easy butter cake recipe by Bella on bestrecipes.Its a really good recipe......the taste is simply super,the only thing that went wrong (in my case )was that it was a little crumbly...but that was probably because I did not have self raising flour..and used baking pdr..get self raising flour and make this cake.you wont regret it.
INGRDS
2 eggs
125 gms butter
1 cup sugar
2 cups self raising flour
2/3 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla essence
METHOD
eggs,butter,flour,sugar,milk and essence
going into the oven
1.Couldn't be easier......simply put everything(yes..yes..everything)in a bowl....beat with an electric beater...pour into a prepared tin(greased and floured)..bake in a pre heated oven (180deg C)..till a skewer comes out clean..........about 30 mins.







oh!the aroma.....yum!so close..yet so far!

given up waiting! there's no hope when the lady is busy clicking snaps instead of feeding us cake.
2.Cut and serve with tea,or coffee.....or simply have it plain...the buttery taste is just heavenly.
