Anyone who knows me will probably laugh if I said I was baking a cake, and I have to be honest – even me making this cake involved me asking for help from my mum and sisters.
How do they make baking look so easy on GBBO?!
Anyway, I decided to prove EVERYONE wrong – and I found a recipe I liked the look of and decided to give baking a go.
This is what the finished cake looked like on the recipe:
Who wouldn’t want to eat this. It’s cake. It’s chocolate. It’s got Kinder chocolate on it. YUM YUM.
What you’ll need to make the best tasting cake ever, is:
- 5 eggs
- 150g of sugar/brown sugar
- 8cl of milk (about 1 tsp)
- 90g of melted butter
- 250g of flour
- 1 tsp of baking powder
- one pinch of salt
- 200g of kinder chocolate
- 1 bar of kinder chocolate free
- any other chocolate you fancy to decorate the top
Before you start your mixture, preheat the oven to 180 degrees if fan assisted, and pre-grease your cake tin/s.
It wouldn’t be me if a technical hitch hadn’t have happened.
The technical hitch being, I decided to read a magazine instead of checking the time – and it was only when my mum came into the kitchen and smelt burning did she realise I forgot I was supposed to be the next Mary Berry. 😦
But I still think my cakes looked cute – even if they were bitesize.
I gave them to my family after our Sunday Roast and everyone said how delicious they are.
I guarantee you chocolate junkies will love this – and I’m secretly so proud of myself as they are really tasty and not dry like I was worried about!
You don’t have to use the different coloured mixtures to create a pattern before you bake – but the results of doing so are this:
As you can sort of see, the cakes have a circle of chocolate mixture running through them. I think this look quite interesting – and having seen what the actual cake would’ve looked like I am so disappointed I burnt it!
I mean look how cool that looks!
I’m going to give this another go – and I’ll upload a picture onto my Instagram page so you can all see if it turns out like this!
This isn’t a post I’d normally make, but I’m all for going outside your comfort zones.
Let me know of any recipes I can try (but please not too difficult), and if you’ve attempted to make this cake I’d love to see pictures!
