2-4-6-8 Cake
 
2 large  eggs
4 oz.  margarine/butter
6 oz.  sugar
8 oz.  self-raising flour
  up to 1 cup water or milk.
 
beat the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy, add eggs 
one at a time. sift flour and add a tablespoonful at a time so that 
it can mix in properly, add water or milk as needed to make the batter 
wet enough, you usually need to add the whole cup. put in a 20-25 cm 
baking tin and bake in a moderate oven for 45 min or until a skewer 
inserted comes out clean. my mum always used to grease the pan, flour 
it lightly and then put a piece of baking paper in the bottom so cakes 
don't stick. it always works. my mum is a legend. 
 
variations: chocolate cake - add about 2 tablespoons of bitter cocoa 
with the flour. coffee cake - dissolve 2 teaspoons of coffee into a 
small amount of hot water and add to the rest of the water, or 
substitute a cup of strong cold coffee for the water. 
 
the variations are endless and are only limited by imagination. the 
cake comes out moist and delicious and can be served dusted with icing 
sugar or with any icing you like.
