    MFC is MicroSofts Win32 wrapper class library. If by C API you mean the Win32 API, then they have basically the same functionality, with MFC the API calls are embedded in classes, whilst the raw API they are not.

    There are other class libraries that wrap the Win32 API, I personally believe that Borlands VCL is better organised.

    Whatever, I would advocate learning at least the basics of the raw API before learning a class library. Once you understand the API, the class library can be quickly learnt and is moderately intuitive. If you start with a class library then are forced to use the raw API, you will be working uphill.

    If you meant something different, then restate your question.
