Simple Springy Cake Recipe.

I have finally found the Perfect Recipe which is the simplest. I don’t care what anyone says, I think this is the one for me! See now I have this theory that whenever you don’t put effort into something you make, it comes out DELICIOUS and PERFECT. Yet whenever I actually make an effort, it comes out like turd. All I’m saying is that I may have found the ratio which I can do.

I just love the golden crust you get on a simple sponge.

Recipe:

  • 150g Butter, Room temperature and cubed
  • 1 Cup of Caster Sugar
  • 1 Cup of Plain Flour
  • 2 tsp Baking powder
  • ¼ cup of milk
  • 3 eggs
  • ½ tsp on Vanilla extract
  • ¼ almond extract – can use a different flavour or add orange zest as well as the almond extract.

Okay so it is as simple as making the batter….

  1. Using the electric whisk or mixer if you’d prefer, mix the butter, sugar and eggs together until pale yellow.
  2. Sift flour and Baking powder in and whisk for 3 minutes.
  3. Add milk bit by bit until it feels like lightly whipped cream
  4. Pour into prepared tin and bake in the 150 degree Celsius oven for 45-60 minutes. DO NOT OPEN THE OVEN WITHIN THE FIRST 40 MINUTES.

Because it’s just a simple cake using a prettier cake tin sets it off. Or you can even put it in a loaf tin and slice it up like bread and sandwich 2 with jam and whipped. Now that is cute when you have friends or family over.

with the ring tin, like i used you can spread chocolate ganache over the top.

Usually with other recipes I make, I get a thick crispy crust and this time I got no major crust just a smooth springy cake. Please tell me what you think and if you have any suggestions as to how to improve ‘develop’ the recipe.
