Let there be cake!


Last night we made a cake,
the BEST cake ever!
I didn't really want to share all this goodness...


Turns out I wasn't the only one who loved this cake.

Want to make one of your own?
Here's the recipe

Ok, I know some of you might have to do some measurement conversions
but trust me this cake is so worth it!
400g sugar
                                                                 400g softened butter
400g self raising flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon milk
8 eggs
100g cocoa powder
whipping cream
tined cherries in syrup
strawberries
flake chocolates

preheat oven to 170 Celsius
mix together the sugar and butter
add the eggs and milk
add flour, baking powder and cocoa powder
mix well
pour into a baking tin and bake for about an hour

let cake cool
cut into three layers
thicken the cherry syrup with some corn flour
and spoon some onto each layer
add cream and cherries
decorate the top with more cream and strawberries
sprinkle with crushed flakes.

Hide, eat all by yourself and enjoy!

YUM that looks amazing! I never realized how different we measure things, grams and Celsius? So different! I really need to travel more to get educated on these things, haha.
