Milo Cake With Milo Glaze (Eggless)

Finally akin a major break through. Unlike the previous cakes (Lemon CakeSujee Cake and Butter Cake), this one is the most precious. Beautifully baked, beautifully glazed and beautifully decorated with store bought sugar flowers. Quite a task actually, first is baking, next is glazing, then carefully placing the flowers and lastly, what goes on behind the scene. I mean the prop for picture beautiful perfect. Well, as a blogger, it's all about practice, especially on getting it right with picturesque (Orange Cheesecake & Nestum Lemon Meringue Pie). Built over time and with creative imagination (Thin Apple Pie & Coconut Mango Jelly). As for the recipe, I am utmost thankful to instructables because cake didn't fail me at all. Seldom is the case. I know better. Previous attempts in replicating cake and biscuit recipes from blogs and others sites failed massively. I can't tell exactly why. Maybe its me or something is not right with the recipes. Any way, let bygones be bygones. Perhaps its about time I come up with my own recipes since I can now confidently bake. I hope so, keeping my fingers crossed. 

Are you now asking me what's with Milo? Well, replicating recipes is not about "blind leading the blind". You can actually make do with ingredients you already have, for me, I couldn't think of any other except Milo for replacing cocoa. Wise thought. I am sure you will agree. Who ever said you can't? Of course you can. This Milo Cake With Milo Glaze evidently is the Milo result.   

For the cake
1 1/4 cup all rising flour
1/2 cup icing sugar
1/3 cup Milo
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup warm water
1 tsp vanilla essence
1/3 cup vegetable oil (no smell)
1 tsp apple cider vinegar

For the Milo glaze
1 tbsp sugar (any type)
4 tbsp butter/margarine
2 tbsp milk
2 tbsp Milo
2 tbsp vanilla extract/essence  
For the cake
Sift flour, sugar, milo, salt and soda.
Keep aside.
Stir together warm water, vegetable oil, essence and vinegar
Fold in sifted flour mixture.
Turn out mixture onto baking pan lined with non-stick baking paper.
Bake at preheated oven (10 mins) for about 1 hour or till cake is baked.

For the glaze.
Add all ingredients into a pan.
Stir till melted and mixture comes together.
Pour over the cake as soon as it's baked.
Decorate as you like once cake is cool down.
