VANILLA CREAM CHEESE CAKE

INGREDIENTS-

For vanilla sponge cake:
1/2 cup of milk at room temperature
1/2 cup of condensed milk at room temperature
1/2 cup butter at room temperature
2-3 tbsp of sugar
1 tsp vinegar
1 tsp vanilla essence
1 to 1& 1/4 cup of all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda

For the cream cheese frosting:
2 cup cream cheese
1/2 to 3/4 cup icing sugar (depending on the sweetness you like)
1 tsp vanilla extract

For topping and decoration:
chocolate wafers/sticks
fondent articles

METHOD
Preheat oven to 350F. Take a baking dish (Ive used two round 6 inch baking dishes for this post) & spray some cooking oil or butter & line it with parchment paper. Spray some cooking oil again on top too. This helps the cake to come out clean & prevents the cake from sticking to the baking dish.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the butter,sugar & condensed milk. Then add rest of the wet ingredients like milk, vinegar, vanilla essence and mix until smooth.
Now in another bowl, sift all the dry ingredients (flour, baking soda and baking powder) together. Now add some flour at a time to the wet mixture & whisk. Continue doing this till you have mixed all the flour & you have a lump free batter. Do not over mix as that will result in hard cake.
Divide the batter into two equal portions (roughly) Pour it into into previously greased baking dishes, spread evenly & bake in the oven for about 25-30 mins. At 30 mins mark, insert a toothpick or knife at the center of the cake, if it comes out clean (i.e. no batter stuck to it) that means our cake is done. Remove it from the oven & let it cool for around 10-15 mins in the pan after which transfer it to a wire rack.
Allow to cool completely before you begin to frost. You can bake this at night and leave it on counter top to cool completely or store it in refrigerator until ready to frost.
Now mix the cream cheese and icing sugar along with vanilla until it get mixed properly and having smooth consistency.
cut the cake in half and spread the frosting and then put the second layer and do the icing of the cake.
decorate with garnishes or topping of your choice
