This can’t turn out a flop! Sunday is the best day to be creative and bake cakes. If you happen to have a birthday party in the weekend, try to bake a cake for the birthday boy/girl! It is a great way to surprise someone and a good reason to get creative.
The Egyptians were the first to show baking skills. A long time ago cakes were just round, flour based bread without the sweetening. Later on cakes were considered a symbol of well being.
Ingredients (small turban, serves 16 small portions)
- 100 grams butter
- 100 grams sugar
- 1/2 pack of vanillasugar
- pinch of salt
- grated lemon skin from 1/2 lemon
- 2 eggs
- 250 grams flour
- 1/2 pack of baking soda
- 70 grams of whipped cream or milk
- summer fruit and jam for decoration
You will need a turban mould.
Preheat the oven at 180 degrees Celsius. Take out the butter so it can become softer.
Whisk the butter and add one by one: vanilla sugar, salt, grated lemon skin, eggs and sugar (white). Then mix in the flour, baking soda, milk/whipped cream. Once all the ingredients are nicely mixed, you can pour the mixture into the mould.
The cake is ready in 50 minutes. Let the cake cool down and then slice off the top so you can create a flat base when you flip the cake. Once flipped on a nice serving dish, sif the powder sugar on top and decorate with summer fruit. Serve with jam. Lovely!
Little effort for a good looking cake!
