Easy to make and very yummy. I used pineapple essence since I did not have vanilla essence at home. I made pineapple butter icing on the top of this cake which really added more taste to this cake. Tarla, Thanks for sharing such a wonderful recipe. Foodies - Use the exact measurement for ingredients. This cake receipe batter is little thick compared to other recipes.
