Ran out of snacks at home, checked what I had in my fridge and cabinets and decided to look for simple cake recipes on recipezaar.com
Found a few pound cake recipes and made my own rendition.
Al's Basic Cake Recipe
1 mug sugar
A little more than half cup softened/ almost melted butter
1 tsp vanilla essence or in my case a little tubey thing of vanilla powder
(mix all the above by hand in a plastic Tupperware)
(then alternate, flour and milk)
2 mugs flour + 1 tsp baking powder
Half mug milk
Add 3 pinches of salt
Preheat oven to 350F/ 180C
Bake for about 1 hour, depending on your cake tin. I used 2 small containers (which our takeaway came in - so i only needed about 45 mins)
When baked drizzle some lemon juice mixed with honey on top (juice of less than half a lemon + 1 tsp honey). Serve slightly warm with whipped cream in the side... or whatever you have handy, blueberry jam, fruit preserves, vanilla ice cream...
Serves about 10 large servings or 14 smaller servings
