Pin It



"A new year is unfolding – like a blossom with petals curled tightly concealing the beauty within."

Goodbye 2011 … Welcome 2012! Happy New Year, everyone! Wishing you all a New Year filled with peace, prosperity and happiness :)

How about a fun new recipe to celebrate the beginning of the new year? Have you ever thought of making a cake in a sandwich maker? It is so easy & quick that just takes a few minutes to cook. A perfect delicious treat to satisfy your sweet cravings without spending too much time in the kitchen :)

Vanilla Triangle Cake 
************************
Source : Masala Mornings

Makes : 12

Ingredients :
  •  1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp.  baking powder
  • 1/2 cup butter ( I used cooking oil )
  • 1/2 cup caster sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp.  vanilla essence
Method :
  • Sieve flour and baking powder in a bowl, keep aside.
  • In a separate bowl, combine butter and sugar. Beat till creamy.
  • Add in eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  • Add essence and beat again.
  • Fold in flour mixture.
  • Prepare Sandwich Maker by brushing both sides of the sandwich maker ( cooking surface ) with cooking oil. Close and preheat until the light turns red.
  • Spoon your cake batter in each well until full but not overflowing. 
  • Close the lid of the sandwich maker and cook for approximately 3 - 4 minutes or until golden brown. 
  • Take out the cakes, sprinkle with Icing sugar & serve right away.
My Notes :
  • Check after 3 minutes with a toothpick, if the tooth pick comes out clean, it's ready. If not, cook a little longer, checking after every minute. 
  • They are best eaten right away. But you can make them in advance too, just microwave for a minute or so until warm.
