The recipe is taken from Allrecipes.com and it goes like..

Ingredients:-

All purpose Flour – 1 and 1/2 cups
Baking Powder – 2 tsp
White sugar – 3/4 cup
Eggs – 2
Vanilla extract – 1 tsp
Heavy whipping cream – 1 cup
Salt – 1/2 tsp(I’ve reduced the amount of salt from the original recipe,as mentioned in many comments)

Method:-
Preheat oven to 350 F.Take a bowl and add eggs into it,beat them well using an electric mixer.Now add sugar and the vanilla and beat them together.Combine flour,baking powder and salt in another bowl.Divide the flour mixture into 3 equal parts.Mix in each part gently into the egg mixture alternatively with whipping cream,beginning and ending with the flour mixture.Use a wooden spatula for mixing.

Grease a 9″ cake pan and pour this prepared cake mixture into it.Bake at 350 F for 30 – 40 mts,or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Allow it to cool ,and carefull remove from the pan.

    Hi Annita

    I was baking for the first time with this recipe. Needless to say it came out gr8 :) far beyond our expectation. Would like ur advice on how to fold the cake batter…with flour n whip cream. Couldn’t really do tht so just ended up mixin it with the beater. Will foldin make the cake softer?Tried to fold the batter initially but didn’t turn smooth. So had add a little milk to make it loose n then mixed with beater.

    Also tried the fish packets,palak paneer n the bittergourd curry. N we all thouroughly njoyed it.Thnx to ur blog..now i really njoy cooking :)

    Folding means gently stirring the batter using a wooden spatula.Yeah,the cake will be more soft if you fold it rather than beating it.
    Here’s a description about folding adapted from the site JoyOfBaking.com
    “Fold – A simple but crucial technique used when combining a light and airy ingredient into a heavier ingredient or mixture in such a way as each ingredient maintains its original volume. This technique must be done quickly but gently and stop ‘folding’ as soon as the ingredients are blended. Start by placing one quarter of the lighter mixture on top of the heavier mixture. With a rubber spatula cut down vertically through the two mixtures, sweep across the bottom, up the nearest side of the bowl, and over the top of the mixtures (go in clockwise direction). Rotate the bowl a quarter turn counter-clockwise and repeat the down-across-up-over motion. This technique is commonly used to incorporate flour into a sponge cake base and adding egg whites to a cake batter.”

    hope this helps..And many thanks for writing to me,Jocelyn
