you can get lots of gr8 recepies on the net... just reduce 20-25 degrees off the temperature given in the recepies if u r baking in a convection oven ,.

for cakes, depending on the size of ur pan...equal amts of flour,sugar,butter and eggs do the trick. Add in diff natural flavours, like orangejuice+ rind/ or caramel syrup/ carrot+ dates/ chocolate+ a bit of coffee pwd for a amazing chocolate cake..... just increase the butter by a tbspn or so as the cocoa pwd tends to dry the cake.

havent tried cookies yet... will let u know once i've tried.

Nxt on my list  r gingerbread and fruit cakes for christmas . Hope they turn out well

Hi Prics,

here is your receipe for tea cake

maida 100gms ,butter100gms,powdered sugar 100gm, baking powder pinch, eggs3-4, vannilla essence 1tsp.

keep butter in room temp atleast for couple of hrs. let it become soft. Beat the eggs nicely and keep. sieve maida and baking powder 3times. add butter and sugar to the eggs and beat nicely (always using a hand blender for this and not the mixer) finally add the maida and essence.

preheat the over at 160 c for 10 mts. then keep the mixture for 25 to 30 mts depending upon your oven. always use the bake the dough immediately don't keep it out for long. if you feel the batter is thick you can add 2-3 tbs of cool water. the final batter should not be too thick. check with a fork or a knife in the middle of the cake.  

try this and let me know your comment.
