2 ½ cups flour
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
¼ cup vegetable oil
1 ½ cups milk
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup baking gums*

Preheat oven to 350°F. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar and baking powder. Add vegetable oil and milk. Break egg into a small cup and beat with a fork, just until yolk and white are combined. Add to the bowl, along with the vanilla. Stir until batter is smooth. Add baking gums and stir again until they’re evenly distributed.

Pour batter into a large greased loaf pan. Bake in the centre of the oven until a cake tester comes out clean (about an hour). Let cool, then slice and serve.

*These are not the same as the gumdrops you eat. They’re smaller, harder, and generally found in the baking section of the bulk store.
