"I like recipes that meet 3 main requirements: 1) no waiting time for butter to thaw and quick to whip up using oil, 2) doesn't require electric mixer and a hand whisk will do, and 3) would be great if it didn't need fancy ingredients as well. My schoolmate Najla, a self-employed baker in Calicut, who has turned out hundreds of cakes by now, graciously shared with me this easy recipe. Please adjust the baking time as per your pan size."
