Eggless Vanilla Sponge Cake with Chocolate butter cream frosting

Happiness is baking a cake on your own birthday. This cake is close to me as it was first time baked by me on my birthday and loved by everyone whosoever tasted it. Its simple eggless vanilla sponge cake which can be used as basic cake for any cake baking. I had done chocolate frosting on it and topped it with white chocolate chips.

Ingredients :

1 Cup All purpose flour/Maida
4 tbsp Cornflour/Corn starch
1 tsp Baking powder
1/4 cup Thick Curd
3/4 cup Powdered Sugar
1/4 cup Milk
2 tsp Vanilla Essence
1/2 cup Butter ( i used Amul butter at room temp)

For chocolate buttercream frosting:

1/2 cup Butter ( at room temp, i used Amul butter)
2 + 1/2 cup Icing Sugar
4-5 tbsp Cocoa Powder
1 tsp Vanilla essence
1 pinch Salt
2-3 tbsp Milk
1/2 cup White chocolate chips for topping

Method : First of all sieve all the dry ingredients 2-3 times including all purpose flour, cornflour and baking powder. Take another bowl and beat the butter till its light and fluffy add powdered sugar in it and mix well. Add thick curd, milk and vanilla essence and mix well. Don't worry if mixture curdles on adding milk .
Now fold the wet ingredients with dry by adding flour mixture in 2-3 batches and folding them with help of spatula .
Grease 8 or 8.5 inch baking cake tin and transfer cake batter to it. Pre heat microwave at convection mode at 180 degree for 10 mins and place baking cake tin at lower wire rack in preheated microwave at convention mode at 180 degree for about 35-40 mins.
Check the cake by toothpick test if it comes clean its done otherwise bake for few more mins.
After it is done take it out and let it cool down completely before frosting.

For frosting take butter in mixing bowl and beat it with hand whisker or blender till its light and creamy, start adding icing sugar say about 1/2 cup each time and whisk it to avoid lump formation. After addition  of all icing sugar add salt, vanilla essence , cocoa powder and milk to it and whisk it again properly .

Apply it on ur cake and decorate it with white chocolate chips. If frosting is thick to spread add more milk and if it is thin than add more icing sugar.
This frosting can be stored in refrigerator in air tight container upto two weeks.

Enjoy yummy cake :)
