Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Butter Cake


This is the second attempt of baking an almond butter cake. I used the normal pound cake recipe and added 125gm ground almond.It received good comments from my colleagues who tasted it. It is delicious when eaten warm. This cake reminds me of the kind of plain butter cake that we used to eat when we were young.

250 gm butter
210 castor sugar
4 eggs - slightly whisk
230 gm self raising flour  -  sieve
125 gm ground almond
8-9 tabsp milk
1 1/2 tsp vanilla essence

1)   Cream butter and sugar until fluffy.
2)  Add in eggs one at a time and continue to beat at a low speed.  Add in vanilla essence
3)  Add in flour, ground almond and milk alternately.  Pour mixture into a 8" buttered pan.
4)  Bake at 180 deg C for about 50 mins.    Check with a skewer and if it comes out clean, it is done.
