If you prefer spiced cake, then you can add cinnamon powder and nutmeg powder to the batter.
If you prefer a mild sweet taste for your cake, then reduce the quantity of sugar by 1-2 tablespoon.
We have added powdered sugar and brown sugar in equal proportions. You may replace this proportion with powdered sugar.
We have used wheat flour and maida in equal proportions; but if you want you may prepare it with maida or whole wheat flour.
