Maize Flour Cake

maize flour cake

One basic maize flour cake always goes well, either in the breakfast or in the afternoon, this cake is never too much. I was searching a simple recipe, without too much work and above all tasty, I found several that seemed appetizing, but finished using this one, but I modified the sugar and the oil, because I don’t like cakes that taste too much oil. Recipe tested and approved, delicious!

Maize Flour Cake


4 eggs
2 cups sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup maize flour
1 cup hot milk
1 tbsp baking powder


Preheat the oven to 180ºC/350ºF. Lightly oil and flour a cake pan.
In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder and maize flour.
In a separeted large bowl, whisk the eggs. Then gradually add the sugar while whisking and whisk for a couple of minutes. Slowly add the oil, and wisk until well blended. Sift the dry ingredients one more time, add to the eggs misture and whisk gently to combine. Fold in the milk and whisk until it is incorporated.
Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan, and bake for 20 minutes. Reduce the heat for 160ºC/320ºF and bake for more 20 to 30 minutes until a cake tester or wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
*In my opinion eat while it is still hot…hehe 🙂

    1. Hi Abhi, yes you can, but the cake will have a different texture. You can replace 1/2 cup of oil for 1/2 + 1/8 cup of melted butter.
