Now once all these are poured in the bowl, mix them properly with the wooden spoon. This is what we call the batter and often there are special batter mixers or cake mixers available that would help you fix the batter properly. You have to make sure the batter is mixed properly to avoid clumping of the ingredients. Smooth and fine consistency should be maintained to efficiently evaluate the cake. In case of an eggless cake, remove the egg from the equation and continue with the rest.
Midway to mixing the batter, add one teaspoon of vegetable oil along with the flavors which can be vanilla pod or powder or liquid. In case of chocolate, add cocoa powder along with the vanilla and then mix it again.

Now bring out the cake baking pan and grease and flour it well. Doing so will help the cake from sticking to the bottom of the pan so that at the end of the baking you can simply slide it out of the pan. Often in cases, we grease the pan and then cover the inner side along with the walls with butter paper. Now evenly pour out the consistency into the pan. Sift it to equalize the mixture.
Prior to this you can pre heat the oven if needed. This initiates the process. Turn the oven to 350F for five minutes and then insert the cake mix.
Now continue baking at 350F for the next half an hour and by that time you will see your cake fluffing up and gaining consistency.
Bring out the cake and then turn over the pan to let it slide into the decoration plate.
