A simple quick no-fail-cake

... and it's eggless too!

200 gms Self-raising flour (sifted)
90 gms butter (at room temperature)
1 can condensed milk
150 ml carbonated drink (7-up)
1 tsp vanilla essence

Preheat oven to 175 degrees C. Grease and dust a 8"square cake tin
Beat together butter and condensed milk. Stir in vanilla essence.
Alternately spoon in flour and soda water, starting and ending with flour.
Pour batter into prepared tin and bake for 45 minutes or till done.

What I like best about this recipe are the easy variations.

For a nice Orange cake, I've used Fanta or Mirinda orange, and orange essence instead of soda water and vanilla essence.

For an interesting chocolate version, I added 2 tablespoons of Dutch process cocoa sifted with flour. And Pepsi . Adds a nice touch.
