  • Beat in the eggs one at a time ( Add a tablespoon of flour, if the mixture curdles ).
  • Beat in vanilla essence.
  • Fold in the flour mixture using a spatula or beat in, on a very low speed until just mixed  ( Do not over-mix it) .
  • The mixture should be of a dropping consistency; if it is not, add a little milk.

  38. Salaams Ambreen! I just had a quick question and wanted your opinion on something. I'm planning on make a cake and custard trifle tommorow and wanted to use one of your recipes for the cake. Now my question is that do you think that this cake or the recipe you have for plain cake will be best? Which of the two do you think will hold better with custard? My plan is to make this soon inshAllah :) I love your recipes and I know that I will always get amazing results anytime I use them :)

    1. Henna, I think any one of them would work fine for trifle. This one is more rich and buttery while plain cake is slightly spongy. Personally, I would use plain cake, soaked with fruit syrup. You're always so kind about my recipes, hope this will turn out well too :)

  39. I might be trying this one out very soon! I'm a huge fan of butter cake, and this looks easy enough to tackle!
