Simple Vanilla Cake


            This is a simple vanilla cake.Whoever wants to try baking for the first time,can easily start with this.simple ingredients,no hard job,less energy and no mess :)
This can be made rich with adding mixed nuts,tutty-fruity,dry fruits etc on the top or mixed with cake batter also.this is so soft and delicious to eat without frosting.
