Hello everyone
Cakes are generally loved by all sweet tooth ones but if it comes to colorful soft and moist cake, then who can deny to atleast one bite. Yesterday my daughter, after coming from her school announced that she wants to carry something yummy for her friends to share as they want to celebrate Independence Day ...😳😳.. I started to scratch my head to get any clue of Independence Day on 22nd October, but failed 😐. So to satisfy my curiosity, I asked her about the celebration and what she told was really funny and nostalgic too😊. As their exams were finished yesterday and they got independence from exams so they are celebrating πŸŽ‰πŸŽŠ πŸ˜ƒπŸ˜ƒ.
But the main problem was, what to make for her and after rejecting nearly a dozen of options she agreed for a rainbow cake. I never made this cake before but what to do, gathered all my courage and jumped in the battle field😁😁. And to my surprise and good luck the cake came out so soft, moist and most importantly eye treat to everyone. 
The step wise recipe of this cake is given below, hope you all will definitely like it.


Serves: 15-20
Time: 1:20 hrs

Ingredients        * I made big cake for sharing but if you want smaller one then half the quantity used.

4 cups all purpose flour ( maida)
2 cups powder sugar
1 cup oil ( any without flavour)
2 cup yogurt (curd)
1 cup warm milk
1 tsp baking soda
2 tsp baking powder 
2 tsp vanilla essence
Food colors 


First of all grease a big baking tray and dust some flour on it evenly. Remove extra flour by tapping and keep it aside .

Seive flour, baking powder and baking soda together so that they will get mixed uniformly. Then add powdered sugar to flour and again mix well. 

Now in another bowl mix yogurt, oil and vanilla essence together well. 

Add flour mix in yogurt mix in batches and keep folding. Now add milk and make a smooth batter neither too thick nor runny. If needed add more milk to get idli batter like consistency.

 Now divide batter in equal quantity , desired number of colors i.e. 6-7 equal parts of batter. Now add color to each batter and mix well. Don't over mix otherwise you will end up with dense cake.

 Now place a butter paper in the baking tray and pour one batter . Tap the tray to spread one batter then pour other, similarly pour all batters one by one followed by tapping every time. 

Now take a skewer and make lines on cake (optional) . 

Now bake it in a preheated oven at 180 degree C for 50 -55 mins. Keep an eye on it after 40 mins as different oven takes different time to bake. Mine took exactly 50 mins. For doneness checking, insert a tooth pick or skewer in middle of cake , if it comes out clean with some crumbles on it then it's ready otherwise bake for some more time.

After done let the cake rest in baking tray for 8-10 mins then invert on a wire rack and let it cool completely before slicing to get clean slices.

Your colorful, soft and moist cake is ready to serve on any occasion as kids will always be ready to gobble it up. Even there is no need of any frosting or icing on it as its so beautiful that you don't want to hide.

You can also make it in microwave at high for 10-12 mins. But keep checking after 10 mins as over microwaved cakes become chewy and hard.
If you want to bake a small cake then can easily half all the ingredients and don't forget to half the baking time too and keep checking for doneness 😊.

This is so simple yet delicious cake with easily available and only few ingredients. Hope you all will definitely going to give it a try and please give your suggestions and comments here so that I can improve my way of sharing recipes with you all.

Happy cooking....
