Busy Day Snack Cake Made From Scratch Step By Step

I have always loved yellow cake. Ever since I was little I would pick the yellow, or the vanilla cake over chocolate or any other flavor.. And now its the same for my kids they will pick yellow cakes or muffins over chocolate ( not saying I don't like chocolate because I cant live without that either lol)
So anyways I'm baking my Famous Busy Day Snack Cake out of scratch today.
Its 9.00 pm and the kids are off to bed, and I'm Baking for tomorrow mornings breakfast, and so the kids can take the cake as a snack for lunch. ( I even sent some to the Principal hope he likes it)

 The reason why its called a busy cake is because its the type of cake you would make when your really busy it takes only about 10 min to get the batter ready and off to the oven! plus The Busy snack cake is so scrumptious, moist tasty and made out of just a few basic ingredients. Im sure all the moms out there can understand that you don't always want those very sugary, sweet, oily, full of egg with heavy toppings cakes, or desserts for their kids all the time. So Im telling you Mommy's These are the simplest little treats ever!

Stop paying so much at grocery stores for snacks and muffins cakes when you can bake your own Homemade, fresh and healthy sweet treats. "YOUR KIDS WILL LOVE YOU"

Naz's Notes:
1. Please be real precise with measuring the ingredients using the correct measuring utensil's.
2. Dip your knife in water, before cutting this or any particular cake, so the cake wont break or crack.
3. You can be creative, and use any toppings of your choice, like nuts, almonds, glaze, or nutella..

Ingredients makes 8-10 servings depending on how big you cut the pieces
Prep time 10 minutes
Bake Time 25 minutes
Cool 15 minutes

1 1/3 cups all purpose flour
2/3 cup sugar
Sprinkles ( any choice)
2 teaspoons baking powder
2/3 cup milk
1/4 cup butter or margarine (softened)
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Took The Pics at 6:00 Am, The Sun was Just Rising It was so Beautiful

Step by Step Method:

Grease a 8-1 1/2 inch round baking pan, and set to aside.
 In a mixing bowl combine flour, sugar, and baking powder. put to aside
In a separate bowl combine, milk, eggs, butter, and vanilla mix well. add wet mixture to dry mixture.
Now add in your confetti sprinkles( this is optional, but my kids tend to love it) Mix well with a hand whisk, for about 2 minutes.
Pour batter into your prepared pan( I used a heart shaped pan my mom got me as a gift) and place in a 350 oven for 15-20 minutes, depending on your oven.. some ovens will take more time like 25-30 min.
after 10-12 minutes, when the cake is rising, add the sprinkles ( If you add them to the batter when its not half way done, your cake will sink, or overlap the sprinkles when rising)
Insert a toothpick, when it comes out clean remove the cake from your oven..
cool in pan for 10-15 min and serve, warm or cold.. ( what I do in a hurry I let the cake cool for 10 min on a wire rack, and them place it in the top of my freezer/refrigerator with the door open for 5-10 min and its cold in a jiffy)
You can top  the cake with nuts, raisins, oreos, even a glaze, or nutella its up to you, have fun and be creative.  I just do it the real simple way  because remember its my busy day cake..
