5-ingredient cake with berries by Mama Steph


2 1/2 cups self-rising flour 3/4 cups sugar 1 egg 3/4 cup milk 1/2 cup oil

Plus, your favorite add-ins. I used one cup of fresh cranberries and added the juice of one orange, just for extra flavor.


In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour and sugar. Make a well in the center, and add the remaining ingredients, and stir until you have a batter with no flour clumps left.

Pour your add-ins into the batter; one cup of cranberries, or blueberries, etc. Stir just until incorporated.

Spread into an 8x8" baking dish you have sprayed with cooking spray.

Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes; check with toothpick.
