Rainbow Cake


1 1/2 cup all purpose flour / plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
1- 1  1/4 cup sugar
115 gm unsalted butter
3 eggs
1/3 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt
food colours – red, orange, yellow, green and blue


  1. Preheat oven to 190 degree celcius. Grease 9 inch cake pan with butter and dust it with flour.
  2. Sift together plain flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl and keep it aside.
  3. In another large bowl, add butter and sugar and beat well till the mixture becomes creamy.
  4. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add milk and vanilla extract and mix well.
  5. Gradually add the flour mixture and gently fold with a spatula.
  6. Divide the batter in different bowls, depending on number of colours ( Here I used five colours – blue, green, yellow, orange and red). Add few drops of each colour in each bowl and mix well.
  7. Drop the coloured batter, one by one, into the middle of the prepared cake pan – blue , green, yellow, orange and red.
  8. Bake it for 30-40 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean.
  9. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely. For frosting,I used Buttercream Icing and garnished with M &M’s and sugar sprinkles.
  10. Cut the cake into slices and serve….
