Simple basic cake recipe that even a baking novice can bake!

Perfect plain cake
I love this plain cake, as simple and unadorned as it is. It is what my taste buds knew as cake right from. It is slightly airy, sweet but not overwhelmingly sweet. It is perfect!

⏩Preheat oven to 350°F (176°C). Oil a baking pan (8 by 2 inch) and set aside.

⏩In a large bowl, mix together the margarine and sugar until light and fluffy.

⏩Beat all eggs in another bowl then add to the sugar and margarine mixture, add in vanilla and beat well.

⏩Add in half of the flour, the nutmeg and baking powder and mix until well incorporated. Add the remaining flour and mix well.
