“…nothing is too much trouble if it turns out the way it should.” – Julia Child
Another basic cake that would do good in your baking repertoire . It is extremely light and fluffy , similar to my basic sponge cake. It is as delicate but a tad bit more moist and flavourful IMHO.
It is not difficult to make , but the way of making it is slightly different from other vanilla cakes I have tried. There is the whipping of the eggs and the adding of flour . But to this is the additional step of adding hot milk to which a little bit of butter has been melted.
The end result is a gorgeous crumb that is sturdy but at the same time airy enough to absorb soaking syrups and their flavours. Therefore – infinite versatility as a amazing basic sponge in any number of fascinating layer cakes. Infant I adapted this recipe from The Birthday Cake Cookbook !
Good enough to eat on its own ( with some dusted sugar maybe?) , but its perfect to use whenever you want some vanilla cake layers to build a celebration cake. And thats exactly what I am going to do with it … stay posted !
