hi hi hi hi hih cake
The simplest recipe is the so called "1-2-3 Teig" or "1-2-3 dough" in english.
Its 1 cup butter, 2 cups sugar, 3 cups flour.
Add flavors like vanille or choclate pieces as you desire.
Of course if you need more dough, then double the amount or whatever, its pretty straight forward.
You could mix the flour with 1 flat teaspoon baking powder to make the cake more "fluffy". Because if you don't it could tend to get as solid as playdough....

Let me make it as simple as I could.One cup of butterOne cup of sugarMix this together.Crack eggs into a cup untill it's full, This will be around 2 eggs.Pour this into the butter and sugar mixture and beat, It will look like shite but don't panic.Now measure out 1 cup of Self raising flour, If the flour doesn't have a raising agent ad two teaspoons of baking power, Empty half of this into the mixture and mix it in gently, just until the flour has been mixed in fully. Repeat for the other half of the flour.Now pour this into a lined cake tin and bake in the oven until golden brown on the top and if you stick a toothpick into the middle of the cake and pull it out there will be no mixture on the pick.Remove from the tin and leave to cool.NOW EAT!=)
Open cookbook, find recipe that looks interesting, look at ingredients list and tools needed (cake pan, measuring cups/measuring spoons, spatula, mixing bowl...), go out and buy any I don't already have, follow directions in book.
(Or, if you don't want to bother getting a cookbook, open browser and search for web recipes.)
Seriously, most cakes are pretty simple cookery.
