    Just came to your blog by chance. Really liked your blog. Great recipes and pictures.

    I have a question regarding the sugar you have specified in the ingredients. Did you mean 1 cup powdered sugar or 1 cup sugar granules? Also, would it be fine if I replace vegetable oil with butter?

    I have recenlty started a blog called Tummy Times ( ). Would love to hear your comments and suggestions on the blog.


    Thanks Ashima.I’ve used granulated sugar in the recipe.
    I’m not sure how it’ll be if you replace oil with butter..haven’t tried it like that…so i’m sorry, I cannot help you with this question.
    Will surely visit your blog..Thanks for letting me know abt it.

    I am MAnya, a 13 year old girl who found this sight, made the cake and it was delicious. i and everyone loved it. Thanks for the recipe very much.


  20. of course like your web-site however you have to take a look at the spelling on quite a few of your posts.
    Many of them are rife with spelling problems and I to find it very troublesome to inform the
    reality then again I’ll surely come back again.
