Method

 
Pre-heat your oven to 180°C. Cream the butter until it is light and fluffy, then add the sugar and
beat again. Then add the eggs in one at a time, beating in between each one.

Sift the dry ingredients and add to the butter mixture. Slowly beat in the milk and vanilla essence.

Line two cake pans with grease-proof paper and divide the mixture evenly between the two.

Bake the cake for 25-30 minutes or until the cake is cooked – if pierced with a knife, the blade should run clear, if any batter sticks to the knife place back into the oven.

Place cakes on a cooling rack and once cooled, ice your cake with whatever you feel to be the best.

Tip of the day

 
Baobab leaves
African cooks use leaves from the massive baobab tree to thicken their stews. Like okra, the leaves give the dish a congealing texture that's characteristic of West African stews. Okra will give a similar effect if you can't find baobab leaves.
