I have fond memories associated with this cake, my grandmother and mother used to bake this one when we were kids and we used to love the simplicity of this cake. No baking in the oven or microwaves (of course we didn't have one at that time), Simple but yet very tasty and delicious. My grandmother baked these a few times on our birthday and used to decorate this with icing sugar and butter and she did a great job then. She also added a lot of candid fruits (home-made dried orange peels) and some times gave it a marble effect just by adding some cocoa powder into it while baking.We used to have this cake with cold milk and relish it! Now a days microwave/oven has become skeleton of our kitchen. At least I cannot think my life without one. Here's the recipes for baking on both oven /gas stove! Enjoy
Preheat oven to 180 degrees C and place a rack in center of oven.
