I just ‘had’ to start a cake thread! I had loads of leftover Easter Eggs and finally found an excellent way to use (some of) them up! Enter the Honeycomb Milk Chocolate Easter Egg Fudge Cake I made a chocolate fudge cake using Easter Eggs instead of Dark Chocolate and Honeycomb Hot Chocolate powder instead of Cocoa powder. The result is a delicious combination of Honeycomb, fudge and Chocolate Easter Egg! The smell is Devine too, my kitchen smells of Honeycomb and fudge!
So, what’s the best cake you’ve ever baked?
What’s the best cake you’ve bought from a bakery?
What is your favourite cake?
Actually any cake related answers are ok
CAKE! I love cake. I make my own after giving up sugar. It has its own sugars from dried fruit and crystal ginger (wash off the sugar on the ginger but need to steep my own ginger with honey sometime).
Your cake looks good Replacing sugar with dried fruit and also replacing butter with egg and/or home made apricot purée is a good way to make healthier cakes.
ooh! I've tried reducing the butter and found it dry- more eggs helps then? I add two eggs at moment to 100g of spelt flour (+ 70g butter and 20g olive oil)
Yes more eggs definitely helps! Also if you rehydrate dried apricots by simmering them in pre-boiled water until they are all puffed up, then whizz them and a little of the water in a blender, et voila, home made apricot purée, also a good sub for butter :-)
Tried the 'more eggs' method and yes I works. Fankoo. I cut back on the butter about 40% but a tad on dry side so I'll try 50%- that's still brill
Fantastic! Really glad to hear that more eggs worked :-)
I am thinking about puree now. Could I do the same thing with dried cherry you think?
Probably! It’s worth trying at least, I’m all for experimenting in the kitchen!
I lovvvvve everything cherry
Let me know how it goes?
