Eggless strawberry custard powder snack cake
The most important thing I liked about this cake is the beautiful aroma. It smells heavenly all the while, right from when you add the custard powder ,when the cake is getting baked and served. I really loved the bubble gum like smell. Yumm.
This is a very simple one,very easy to put together the ingredients, an one bowl recipe. The cake was really soft and spongy and it tasted really delicious.

- Combine the butter and sugar and mix using a wooden spoon until creamy.
- Now combine the dry ingredients. Mix well. Finally add the milk and mix to form a uniform batter. Pour the batter in a greased and 8' floured cake tin.
- Bake in a preheated oven at 180c for 40 minutes or till the cake is done.
- Cool and invert the cake on a plate. Slice and serve.
When I inverted the cake, it was completely perfect, but cracked slightly after a while.But it wasn't crumbly. It could be easily cut into perfect slices.
You can use any other flavored or plain vanilla custard powder too.
You can replace custard powder with corn starch. Add a teaspoon of vanilla essence if you use corn starch.
If you don't have self raising flour, use plain flour (1 1/2 cup) with baking powder (2 1/4tsp) ,the rest of the ingredients as listed.
Serve with strawberry sauce on the top if you prefer.
