Cooking Instructions:
The first step in production a plain cake batter is to beat butter so that it becomes smooth. It is best to use softened butter as it requires less time and attempt to make it smooth. While beating, gently increase the speed of beater in this process. Keep beating butter with sugar until it gets a creamy texture. Now gently add egg yolks and beat well to mix evenly. In a cut off bowl, beat egg whites on high speed for 2-3 minutes to form a foamy texture . All the time beat egg whites just before adding in the batter otherwise it separates itself into liquid and foam and your cake might become hard. Mix egg whites into the combination and make fine plane batter. Add few drops of vanilla essence as it will take off any unpleasant smell of egg. Mix separately, all the dry ingredients i.e flour, baking powder, salt and sift them together so that all the air escapes from the combination and they mix evenly. Using spatula, add and mix dry combination to the batter. You can also use a beater for this purpose but you will have to keep its speed very low because we just want the ingredients to be mixed together. Now add half cup of milk, raisins and mix using any flat spatula. In a convenient size baking pan, pour the batter and bake in preheated oven for 30-40 minutes at 180 degree centigrade. It is not indispensable that the baking time remains same as mentioned above. It may be more or less because depending upon the working of your oven. The best way to check the cake is when you start sensing its smell. At this point, insert a knife from top till deep down the lowest of your cake.
