The reason behind being interested about baking is, my sectet affair with cake. Lol 😛 I really am crazy about those creamy cakes you see in the pastry shops. After moving here, I had to stop my habits of trying out new restaurant because of being a halal eater. But in case of cakes and pastries, you don’t have such facts to be worried about. The more I try, the more I want to know how to make them by myself in home. Few days ago, we bought a halogen oven. And I keep trying on learning new baking stuff with that. As for today, I tried a Butter Vanilla Cake with Vanilla Cream Cheese Frosting. So, here’s the recipe for it:-

  1. Two large eggs
  2. A little less than half cup butter
  3. Quarter cup sugar 
  4. Quarter cup flour
  5. Two tbsp vegetable oil
  6. Two tbsp liquid milk
  7. Baking soda: a pinch
  8. Baking powder: 1/2 tsp
  9. Little bit of lemon juice
  10. Vanilla powder: two tbsp

Procedure: Separate egg yolk. Beat the egg whites until it becomes foam. Now take egg yolks, vegetable oil, butter, liquid milk, sugar and lemon juice in a separate deep round pan and beat them until smoothes. Take all the dry ingredients and add them with egg yolk mixture in little amounts. Keep beating. At last add the foam of the egg whites. Preheat your halogen oven for 5 minutes at 180°C. And bake your cake for 30 minutes at the same temperature. Time may vary for different ovens, you should keep checking. 🙂


  1. Half pound cream cheese 
  2. Half cup butter 
  3. Two tbsp vanilla powder 
  4. 300 grams icing sugar 

Beat them all until smooth and creamy for at least 10 minutes and keep it in the for refrigerator for 15 minutes.

Decorate as you like. I also put some ganache over mine. 😀

Enjoy your weekend!!
