Homemade Jiko Vanilla Cake


2 cups of flour
1 small cup of sugar
250 grams margarine
4 eggs
1/2 litre of milk

How to make it:

Light your jiko, with enough charcoal (not too much, not too little)
Grease your sufuria with a little oil all round, this way,  the cake will not stick to the sufuria once its done.
Once you put your cake mix in a sufuria, you will need to divide your charcoal in the jiko in two.
You will put half of the coal in the jiko, and the other half on a lid that you will use to cover your sufuria with the cake mix.
Now, the charcoal needs to be red enough but very little on both sides. If you put a lot of charcoal the cake will get burnt and will not full cook in the middle.
Once you have covered your cake, you will need to check your coal every so often to ensure that it’s still producing heat, if not, you will have to fan the coal until it is red and producing heat.
You will continue to check on your cake to ensure that it bakes properly. To know that it is fully baked, you take a fork and insert into the cake and if it comes out clean the cake is ready.
Once the cake is ready, let it cool and serve. Depending on your preference, you can ice the cake, make custard or eat it plain as it is.
You should definitely give it a try and share how the experience was.
