Cakes began in ancient Egypt as round, flat, unleavened breads that were cooked on a hot stone. Yes, we know it’s a little unusual but trust us… You can either play it safe or try something totally new, but whatever your preference, all our cake recipes are easy to make and won’t keep you in the kitchen too long. This amazing chocolate marble cake recipe may require some effort but the results are well and truly worth it.
If you can only get salted butter then I can’t imagine a reason why you can’t use that and then omit the added salt. The cake itself, made with lemonade and lemon zest, is only enhanced by a tangy cream cheese icing. Darker sugars such as unrefined molasses sugar or muscovado are great for baking but will give a darker colour, deeper flavour and moister texture than caster sugar, so need to be used in their appropriate recipes.
As the weeks go by we’ll be adding more and more of our cake recipes to this page, so if your favourite isn’t listed below come back in a few weeks and it may well be there. The baking itself should be simple enough and if you’re looking for something more elaborate and show-stopping, you can take some time on the decorating to make it look the part.
Treat yourself to something decadently delicious – you can dress up any weeknight meal by serving this chocolate cake topped with chocolate-covered strawberries. My cake keeps falling apart… Remember to have the cake cool before you start slicing up. If it’s still falling part, try mixing icing or frosting together with the cake so it can stick like glue.
The reason why I wanted to use the butter was because I would assume it would give it a more dense feel. Place the butter and sugar in a mixing bowl and beat them together until the mixture is light, fluffy and creamy. I’m looking for recipes for an 18 year old disabled child who must ALWAYS eat pureed foods.
