April 3rd was hubby's birthday and i baked this cake before the day as i had to work on April 3rd and i come home quite late. So we celebrated his birthday a day before.
Maida/all purpose flour 3 cup
Butter 1 1/2 cup
Sugar 2 cup
Baking powder 1tsp
Milk 1/4 cup
Vanilla essence 1 tsp
Orange juice fresh 1/4 cup
Mixed fruit jam 5 tbsp
Mix the dry ingredients. Divide the dry ingredients into two parts.
Take half of the butter and two eggs and beat until fluffy. Add vanilla essence.
Now slowly add the mixture into the one part of the flour. Add milk and mix well.
Grease a baking pan and pour the batter and keep aside for a while. In the mean while preheat the oven at 190 C.
Then take the second part of the dry ingredients. Take the remaining butter and add the two eggs and beat until fluffy. Add orange juice.
Now add the above mixture into the remaining flour and mix thoroughly.
Grease a banking pan and pour the batter.
Now bake both the cake for 35-40 minutes until tooth pick comes out clean.
Let the cake cool down.
Spread jam on the cake which has vanilla. Sprinkle coconut on top.
Place the cake which is in orange colour on top of the above cake. Spread jam and sprinkle desiccated coconut.
My kids wanted to decorate the cake more and they sprinkled those fancy things which we brought from a cake store here. I am not sure what they are called, excuse me for that.
