White Cake

Ingredients

  • All Purpose Flour(Maida) or Cake Flour - 1 1/2 cup
  • Butter(room temp) - 1/2 stick (1/4 cup)
  • Sugar - 1 cup
  • Egg Whites - 2
  • Baking Powder - 1/2 tblsp
  • Vanilla Essence - 1/2 tsp
  • Cold Soda/Water/Milk - 3/4 cup

For Frosting

  • Mandarin Oranges - 1 tin
  • Cream - 200gms (7 oz)
  • Jam - 2tbsp (optional)
  • Powdered sugar - 4 tbsp
  • Almonds - 1 cup (sliced)

Method

  1. Beat the egg whites until it is stiff.
  2. Beat the butter and the sugar together.
  3. Sift the flour and baking powder in a separate bowl.
  4. Mix the dry and the wet ingredients.(butter, sugar, flour and baking soda).
  5. Add the soda/water/milk and vanilla essence and mix everything well.
  6. Fold in the beaten egg whites gently with the above batter.
  7. Grease a cake pan and add the batter to it.
  8. Bake it in a 350 degree F oven for 30 minutes.
  9. Prick the cake using a toothpick to see if the cake is ready. If the cake is ready the toothpick will come out clean.
  10. If done take it out of the oven and cool it nicely before applying the frosting. (I made 2 cakes to layer and apply frosting)

For Frosting

  1. Whisk together the cream using a whisk or using a hand blender until stiff peaks are formed.
  2. Mix the icing sugar and vanilla essence to this to make the frosting.
  3. Place one cake on a cake stand or a tray.
  4. Sprinkle few drops of the liquid from the mandarin orange can.
  5. Apply some frosting all over the cake then sprinkle some orange pieces and almond pieces.
  6. Now place the second cake on top.
  7. Optionally, apply some jam on the outer section of the whole cake.
  8. Apply rest of the frosting on the top and sides of the cake.
  9. Decorate the sides of the cake with sliced almonds and the top of the cake with fruits.
