i don't know about you, i think that any bought cakes of biscuits pale in comparison with home made.
traditionally Sunday is backing day. i turn up my fave radio station in the kitchen and boogie away while i bake.
recently i went to my German friend Gudrun's birthday party and she presented us with a lovely variety of German treats, one of which was an especially moist delicious cake.
when she told me how easy it is to make i tried it and i have to say it really is the quickest, loveliest recipe i have ever come across!
it literally involves throwing all these ingredients in a bowl;
1 cup oil (not olive oil)
1 cup sugar
3 cups flour
1 cup milk
5 teaspoons baking powder
in any random order, mixing it for a minute, pouring it into a large roasting pan lined with baking paper, about;
15inches-39cm x 12inches-30cm x 1.5inches-3cm deep
and baking it for about 20-25 minutes at 180 degrees.
It is brilliant if you need quite a large amount for a party etc.
i freeze half of it.
you can change it every time by adding choc chips,lemon, coconut, nuts, choco powder,fresh berries, dried fruit etc etc,
you could ice it, however the quickest way is to simply dust with icing sugar.if you never bake, try this! you'll be a hit!
i would love to hear from you if you have tried it!
