I'm one of those that goes to a bake shop and hardly mess around in the kitchen, this time, since my mom was baking a cake, so i thought might as well bake another one, while the oven is still hot.
While fumbling around google to look for last-minute recipes, I referenced one of the recipes I found, which I thought, it's fairly simple enough to follow. I never bake a cake with flour before. The most I did was from the premix where I only added oil and eggs.
I brought back some dates from work since it's the month of Ramadhan, we were given small packets of dates daily to break 'fast'.
Here it is, my improvised recipe:
250 g Butter
150 g Brown Sugar
250 g Self rising flour
6 g Baking Powder - i made a mistake by adding the baking powder since I'm already using a self rising flour
More than 10 chopped dates
10 g Sodium Bicarbonate
150 ml Hot Milk
2 tsp pink/white sugar powder(for dusting on top)
