Delicious fruity cake that will keep moist for several days.
A creamy, thick icing that pipes easily onto cakes or cupcakes.
This is a light and moist cake that is not too sweet and has a refreshing green tea fragrance. The icing uses cream cheese but has enough sweetness to mask the sour taste. The matcha (green tea) powder gives it a delicate green hue too. This cake can also be baked as a in a 23x33cm (9x13 in) tin or as 2 separate round cakes in two 20cm (8 in) round tins. Adjust baking time accordingly.
Traditional style Black Forest Cake
I made this carrot cake recipe last Christmas and have to admit: I had 3 big slices myself!
This is our family recipe. It's incredibly rich, dense and moist. Fantastic for a special occasion or whenever you need that chocolaty chocolate fix.
We made some buns for my daugher's birthday so she and her friends could decorate them. I used the sponge cake rule which basically involves weighing the eggs and then measuring equal measures of butter, sugar and flour. That's why there are no measures in the recipe below - it totally depends on what your eggs weigh. If you want to make chocolate buns, replace 30g of the flour with 30g cocoa powder.
I make this cake as stress-relief for my exams (what with you geting to mash it together with your hands!) and I can guarantee that every time you make it it'll come out moist and (close-enough) perfect! I usually sandwich it with jam and chocolate butercream, but for a summer party you can't beat halved strawberries and whipped cream.
Delicious and light alternative to heavy winter cakes and Christmas puddings. The sauce that is poured over after baking makes it incredibly moist.
A fun cake for birthdays or a cake sale that looks beautiful. This is a lovely change from the norm.
