Simple cake (Microwave)

This is a very simple cake recipe.This is best for beginners in baking just as I started :-)
I have mentioned 2 ways of baking here.One is in microwave and one is using a cake pan.
So go ahead and bake your first cake if you have not baked till now :-)

Ingredients -
all purpose flour -maida (2 cups)
baking powder (1 tspn)
eggs (2)
sugar (1.5 cups)
oil (1/2 cup)
vanilla essence

Method -
Beat the eggs together.Add sugar to the eggs and mix well.Powdered sugar is preferrable since it will take less time.Or else you can blend the egg-sugar mixture.
Mix the flour and baking powder.
Start adding oil little by little and knead the dough simultaneously.
Now add this dough to the egg-sugar mix.
Mix it well so that the batter is consistent and smooth.

For baking - I have baked in a cake pan and in microwave.
Cake pan baking procedure -
See the pic of the cake pan.Grease the cake pan with oil.
Put the cake batter in the pan and close its lid.
Since I did not have an oven,I used this simple way of baking.
Put some sand in the plate which you see at the bottom.
Place this plate on the burner.Now keep the cake pan over this plate.Keep it on very low flame.
Thats it..that is all you have to do and your cake will be ready in 25-30 min :-)

Microwave oven procedure - 
I made cup cakes in microwave.
Grease the cups with oil.Put the cake batter in them.
Preheat the oven.
Place the cups in convection option in microwave for about 25-30 min.
Fluffy cup cakes are ready :-)
