You will need:
4 eggs 2 cups plain flour
2 cups sugar 1 tsp. baking powder
3/4 cup milk 1/4 cup butter
Beat the eggs. Add the sugar; beat. Bring to a boil the milk and butter. Remove 1/3 cup of flour and add the baking powder. Mix well. Set aside. Add the rest of the flour and the boiled mixture alternately to the eggs and sugar. Finish with the baking powder and flour.
Bake at 160C (150C Fan) for 1 hour in an ungreased tube pan.
Do the old knitting needle test and then cool 1 hour upside down.
Goes deliciously with a chocolate sour cream frosting.
