  • Eggs - 4
  • Sugar - 2 cups
  • Oil - 1/2 cup (canola or similar)
  • Cornmeal - 1 cup
  • Milk - 1cup
  • All purpose flour or cake flour - 1 cup
  • baking powder - 1 tbsp
  • Vannila Essence - 1 tbsp

Preheat oven at 350degreesF. Butter a non-stick 30cm cake pan well and set aside.
Whisk together Eggs, sugar and oil. Make sure you beat the ingredients well to a mix. Then mix cornmeal with warm milk in another separate bowl. Mix the two beaten ingredients (eggs mixture and the cornmeal mixture) together now. Sift the all purpose flour and baking powder and add it to the batter at this stage. Whisk well. To this add some vannila essence and mix well with the cake batter. Pour this to the already butter spread cake pan. Make sure you fill only 2/3 rds of the pan. Bake it for 15 minutes. After 30 minutes, check if the cake is done by inserting a toothpick in the center of the cake. If the toothpick comes out clean, then the cake is ready. Else bake the cake till it passes the toothpick test. Once the cake is ready, take it out from the oven and cool it at room temperature for 10 minutes. Then remove the cake from the pan and serve it topping it with some fresh cream.
