to be honest, all my previous post for eggless cake recipes were pretty much done with oil. i was very comfortable with oil as a greasing agent and was not exploring other options. i knew butter can also be used but i had my reservations about it. my main concern was the texture of the cake especially after it is rested. basically, the butter solidifies when it is rested or cooled down, whereas the oil does not change its texture. moreover, butter can be tricky to mix the dry and wet ingredients however, all my reservations have just evaporated for now. even with so many complications, the taste of the butter cake is no match to the oil-based cake. especially the crunchy texture it forms at the top when combined with sugar is just lip-smacking. hence i would heavily recommend trying this recipe and serve it to your kids or any age group as a dessert snack.

furthermore, i would also like to add some additional tips, suggestions and variations to the tea time cake recipe. firstly, the traditional way of this recipe is to prepare it with egg yolk for extra softness and sponginess. if you are comfortable with the egg you may add it with wet ingredients and skip baking soda. secondly, this cake recipe gets an ideal shape and is efficiently made in a baking oven. if you have access to the oven you should use it to make any cake. you may have to preheat the oven at 180 degrees and later reduce it to 160 degrees while baking for 30-40 mins. lastly, this cake recipe is a plain vanilla and butter flavoured cake, but you add any flavouring agent as per your preference and choice. for instance, you may add raisins, tutti frutti, dry fruits, chocolate and even cinnamon.
