Pound Cake Recipe For The Learner

Also known as Nigerian cake

Easy pound cake well baked.

How to bake Nigerian cake:

This no stress pound cake recipe is especially for the learner who thinks that baking is difficult. This recipe doesn't ask that you mix anything separately before adding. All you have to do is measure and pour in a large bowl. Preparation takes less than 10  minutes and your cake is put in the oven. All you need is a stand mixer because the weight is going to be much for manual mixing.

4 cups all purpose flour (500 grams)
2 cups sugar (500 grams)
2 cups butter ( I used 2 sachets baking margarine) (500 grams)
6 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla essence

  1. Layer all the ingredients in a bowl, start with the flour, sugar, butter, eggs and finally vanilla.

Recipe: How to bake plantain cake that everyone will want to eat

Delicious plantain cake.
Plantain cakes can be baked with either ripe or unripe plantain or with a mixture of both blended together. This delicious cake was baked with ripe plantain. The process of baking this is a bit similar to baking with flour except that here you blend the plantain first of all, and ,there is no beating of eggs with margarine. Everything is added, whisked to mix very well and then poured into the baking pan. The ingredients are same cake baking ingredients, just that here there is no sugar added because ripe plantains are sweet. Baking plantain cakes is another great way of making use of ripe plantains before they go bad. Sometimes plantains get ripe all at once and aside making dodo, roasting and boiling, people can't think of other ways of serving them. With this method of cooking/baking ripe plantains, THAT is solved. This plantain cake is a balanced meal with all essential food nutrients.


  • 5 ripe plantains
  • 5 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt to tone down the sweetness
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  1. Peel, cut into pieces and blend the plantain with a little water.
  2. Empty into a bowl and add all other ingredients
  3. Whisk and mix very well before emptying into a greased baking pan.
  4. Put in a preheated oven and bake till skewer comes out clean. This cake baked in 4o minutes.

How to bake cake using sand in a cooking pot; No Oven

 Delicious Cake baked using sand in a cooking pot placed on a stove top.
 I have posted a cake baked without an oven earlier on the blog. However, that cake wasn't baked using sand. The baking pan was paced directly on the pot and I don't think I'll bake like that again. Using sand and foil actually maintains the pot and is neat too. This I experimented with a small sized cake and because it turned out so great, I'll bake much bigger cakes using these method in the future becaause my oven actually consumes more gas than baking in a pot on the burners. Even when one has an oven, baking in a pot with sand really saves gas because less is consumed.


  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 sachet baking margarine
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • a pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 8 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence.

First of all I accidentally added the sugar direct to flour instead of beating it with margarine first, that scared me but the cake turned out great. Because sugar had already accidentally been added to dry flour, I had to add the eggs one after the other and beat with margarine before adding the vanilla essence. 

Baking without oven procedure:
The sifted flour which already has other dry ingredients added, now begins to get folded in with the egg/margarine mixture. After all the folding in, The taste is great and by now the pot of sand has been on the stove for about 20 minutes. The baking pan is greased, some flour sprinkled inside before pouring in the batter. Foil is used to cover the sand before the baking pan is placed on the foil in the

How To Bake Biscuits Like My 8 Year Old

 Biscuits with fillings.

 I need to learn how to bake from my girls.  Only two of the four enjoy cooking. One likes to beg others to cook for her when she's hungry, the other would rather eat cereals for lunch than cook for herself. This 8 year old is one of those kitchen loving 2. She asked for biscuits, I directed her to crackers.
Said she wanted Danish cookies and I
told her to either take my crackers or bake her cookies herself. Next thing she picked up her cookbook and entered the kitchen.
In less than 20 minutes I was called to come turn on the oven and before I said JACK, these delicious cookies were staring at me.


  • 125 grams of butter
  • half cup granulated sugar
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 11/2 cups self raising flour
  • 1/4 cup custard powder
