This cake turns out perfect with these measurements. A lot of trial and error has gone into this perfection. The number of eggs can be reduced ... just increase the amount of baking powder by half a teaspoon.
Need : 2 cups maida, 4 eggs, 1 cup cooking oil, 1/2 cup milk, 2 teaspoon baking powder, 1&1/2 cup sugar, 1 pinch salt, 6-8 drops of vannila essence, coffee powder (don't use the fine powder ... the granules are better) .
How to :Grind the sugar into powder.
Churn the milk, eggs and vanilla in a blender.
Mix maida, baking powder, sugar, salt and oil in a bowl. (Oily dough)
Add the eggs mixture. Mix well. (Liquid consistency)
Warm oven. Pour mixture into an oven proof bowl greased with a little butter.
Sprinkle 2 tablespoonful coffee granules on the mixture. Just give a swirl , don't mix too well ... that way the taste of coffee comes with every biteful .
Bake at 150-190 degrees. Keep checking and switching off oven in between to get even cooking and browning.
(The cracks in the above coffee cake mean a little more baking powder ...I make this mistake some times. However the measurements above are correct.)
