I like gardening. I planted lotz of flower seeds & this is my first flower in my garden for this season. I am excited to see this cute looking tiny sunflower especially during my morning hrs. With this excitment, I made this cake which taste both vanilla & chocolatish in every single bite. Simple to bake, yet taste yummy :)

- 175 gms softened butter
- 200 gms sugar
- 3 eggs, lightly beaten
- 1/3 cup milk
- 1/2 tsp vanilla essence
- 175 gms self-raising flour
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- Icing sugar, for dusting
Directions to bake :
£ Preheat the oven to 180 C. Lightly grease the baking pan & line the base with non-stick backing paper.
£ Melt the chocola in a bowl over hot water and keep warm. Cream the butter and sugar until soft and fulffy.
£ Add the eggs little at a time until well combined. Add milk, vanilla essence and stir until combined.
£ Stir in the sifted flour and baking powder. Remove half of the mixture and stir in th emelted chocolate until well combined.
£ Drop spoonfuls of the cake mixture into the prepared tin, alternating between mixtures and starting with the light mixture. Bake for 60 to 75 min or until cooked through. Once cool, dust some icing sugar & serve with tea.
