Last week I left my job in the pursuit of happiness? money? better looking workmates? a challenge!
And started my new job on Monday… which meant that I had to take something pretty delicious in for my first day…
And so blog readers, I give to you:
THE EASIEST CAKE I HAVE EVER MADE!
Seriously, just THREE steps:
Chuck the following into a blender/food processor
1 2/3 cups of plain flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 cups sugar
2/3 cup of dutch cocoa
pinch of salt
1 1/2 cups of milk
100 grams melted butter
2 large FREE RANGE eggs
1 tsp vanilla essence ( I used a little less Vanilla Paste )
Blitz for oh about… a minute? Maybe less, until it’s just mixed.
Bake at 175 degrees for 55 minutes
BOOM, you have a GREAT cake….
So, did you get that? Measure, Blitz and Bake. Thats it. Even your awkward cousin from Gore could get this one right.
If you want you could go a little crazy and add steps 4, 5, 6 & 7…
Once cool, slice in half.
But be careful if your awesome mate Jono has really fancy & uber sharp knives and you are baking at his place 😦
Drain some frozen raspberries and mix with mascarpone and fill between the layers…
Cover with ganache! & decorate with some left over raspberries!
When work mates attack…
