Instead of soy milk you can use milk. Instead of oil you can use butter. Some more dry fruits like raisins, apricots, walnuts, almonds or dry fruits of your choice can be added to the cake. The 3/4th cup sugar makes the cake just sweet. but not sweet enough for a cake. add 1 cup sugar to get the right amount of sweetness. If the top of the cake browns quickly, then covers the top with butter paper or aluminium foil.
