Chris's Basic Cake
« on: February 25, 2010, 11:26:14 am »
This recipe was given to me by a friend who ran a cafe in a near by town,  with her husband. There are 3 out standing features of this recipe. Firstly,  the simplicity of the process and ingredients,  and secondly the end result-- a good size (not too large), a good flavor and thirdly the versatility.   You can add anything, chocolate, banana, lemon, orange, sultanas,nuts.   What ever!!!!

150g butter, softened
150g caster sugar
3 eggs
2 cups SR flour
1 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla

Attach Butterfly, and pre heat oven to 200.
Cream butter and sugar on speed 3 for 2 mins.Add eggs, one at a time and beat for 1 min after the addition of each egg, speed 4 for 1 min.
Add flour alternating with milk, speed 3,  until well incorporated.
Pour into a well lined and buttered tin
Bake 200, for 55 mins, or until cooked.   Time will depend on shape/size of tin.

If you add a wet ingredient such as 2 bananas,  or 3/4 cup of cooked apple then you may need to add an additional tablespoon of flour.

Thanks Chookie. It certainly seems a very versatile recipe. I will try it out in the next day or two, when the nasty hot weather goes away.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.
