Hi Lexchic, Do you have a favorite recipe and decoration for a cake?
Hi MPG Narratives,
My favorite recipe has to be the sponge cake recipe, it is really easy and uses basic ingredients. The cake is simply delicious. I'll share my recepie with you.
250 grams Caster sugar
250 grams butter
250 grams flour
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp Baking powder
3 tbsp warm water
1 tsp lemon juice
Cream the butter and sugar till light and fluffy, this should take 5 minutes.
Tip: After creaming the butter and sugar, I add a tsp of lemon juice befor adding the eggs, this helps to make the cake light
Add the eggs 1 at a time, taking care that each egg is mixed properly mixed in before adding another and repeat this untill all the eggs have been added
Add the vanilla
Gradually add the flour and baking powder
Tip: make sure to sift your dry ingredients, this helps the texture and lightness of the cake.
After all the flour has been added (you'll notice it's not a smooth texture), pour in the 3 tbsp of hot water and mix until smooth, this takes about 2-3 minutes.
I don't have a favorite decoration but when decorating sponge cakes, I usually use buttercream icing, it is delicious and really easy to make.
Hi Lexchic, thanks this seems like an easy sponge cake recipe, the one I have is more complicated. Looking forward to seeing some hubs from you soon. Thanks for answering my question.
