Take Wheat Flour & Maida.  At this time itself, preheat the oven at 350f (180 c) 

Sieve all dry ingredients including baking soda, baking powder and powdered sugar

Add Vanilla Extract and vegetable oil at this time. 

Homemade butter milk is ready to go to form the perfect batter

Pouring the buttermilk to make the batter ready. Now add flax seeds mixture and mix it well! 

Batter is ready 

Voila !!!! Cake is amazingly ready with no cracks at all :) :)

This is the best cake recipe I ever tried and made it successful. This will be always in my mind all the time :) :)

And Chocolate Cake - just add 2 tbsp of cocoa powder rest all process is same to make the batter. 

Now comes the real stuff! 

Grease the Pan. Pour Vanilla batter and then Chocolate Batter

Repeat the process until the batter spreads evenly in the pan. 

Garnish it with nuts if you want! ( It is completely optional)

Make any kind of design with fork if you want! 
Grease the pan, preheat the oven on 350f 

Now put one spoon of vanilla batter in the centre of the pan. On top of it, add one spoon of chocolate batter. Repeat the process until the pan is half filled. It will spread automatically. Once its done, you can just with the help of toothpick give the design with light handed. Bake it for 30 minutes. I would have shared pictures but didn't took it as was not sure how it will come up. 

Let me know how it worked out.

Happy Baking and share your feedback with me :)


  1. Can all wheat flour be used?

    1. I am so very sorry that I missed your comment! I would not suggest to ise the Whole Wheat Flour as it won't give you the perfect texture :)
