Happy Bday 'G'....with a Sponge Cake

This week G turned another year younger! So we the ladies, E, R n myself turned ourselves into bakers, icers and sprinklers! (no points for guessing who came up with those terms) LOL.

So for the cake:
1 cup self raising flour
1 cup melted butter at room temperature
3/4 cup powdered sugar
3 eggs
1 tspn vanilla essense
1 small sachet cinnamon choclate icing

Making it:
In a big bowl blend together the butter and sugar. Add the eggs and essense and beat till mixed well. To this slowly add the flour. Beat with an electric beater on low for 30 secs and then on medium for 2 mins.
Preheat oven to 325F and bake for 20-24mins.(till toothpick pricked in middle comes out clean).

Let cool for 10mins before removing from pan.
Then cool completely before icing. Add sprinkles and candles.

E turned expert icer while R ruled with her overdose of sprinkles!

Vola! Happy Bday!

Ps: You can use a little more sugar in the cake.Its just that when we use icing it all ends up too sweet for us! If not for the icing I would have used upto 1 cup of sugar.
Also substitute vanilla essense for any flavour of your choice.

Preheat oven upto 350F if using regular baking pans. I used a non-stick 9" pan.

This is a time tested recipe in my house as one can vary it with chocolate chips, nuts, fruits....

From our kitchen to yours....Celebrate!
