Party Chocolate & Vanilla Cake

Friday 3 May 2013
Handmade Cakes just like they are fresh from the bakers...

I decided to bake some cakes to take over for a Girl's Night In as I saw what was in the store all wrapped in plastic and well...fresh cakes - is there anything better?

So with one hour before going out and an 18 month old requiring tea, I put together this cake and yes it is possible and no you don't have to be Wonder Women - here is how...

You Will Need -

2 very fresh eggs
110 grams self raising flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
Half teaspoon of good quality vanilla essence
125 grams sugar
125 grams butter
25 grams cocoa powder
1 tablespoon whole milk

2 x 8 inch circular sponge trays greased

Let's Create!
Heat the oven to 170C

1. Cream together your butter and sugar until light.
2. Beat in the eggs one at a time.
3. Add the milk
4. Add the vanilla essence
5. Sieve the flour, baking powder and cocoa together and fold (must fold!) into the mixture.

Add to the trays in equal portions and bake for 20 minutes.

Cool and turn, sieve icing sugar over the top and carry to your party in cake boxes (available from Ebay)

Happy Baking ( those fresh cakes),
