Whenever I go to my sister Dilek’s house, one thing you can count on in the kitchen is their ever inviting home-made cake. This is more like a sweet bread. Simple and delicious! I say simple because I know that my nephew makes this cake sometimes. I know it tastes great because I am always tempted to get a second slice.
You can add cocoa powder to some of the batter if you want to make it a marble cake.
You can also add raisins and/or pieces of walnuts to add more flavor to it. Enjoy!
3 cups flour
1½ teaspoon baking powder
1½ cup sugar
¾ cup oil (I use olive oil, but you can use vegetable oil also)
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons cocoa powder (optional)
½ cup walnut pieces (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Sift flour in a large bowl. Add baking powder and mix with a spoon.
In a separate bowl, mix the rest of the ingredients with a whisk.
Add them to the flour/baking powder mixture, stirring with a spoon until it is smooth.
Grease a tube pan with butter or oil spray. If you want the plain version, pour cake mixture evenly into the pan. But, if you want to make it a marble cake, pour 2/3 of the batter into the tube. Add the cocoa powder to the remaining batter, pour into the tube. Sprinkle the nuts over the batter. Gently stir in the nuts with a spoon.
Cook at 350 degrees Fahrenheit until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean. About 45 minutes to1 hour.
