This cake works well for all shapes of cake tins and makes a great base for decorated birthday cakes.

It makes lovely cupcakes too. Bake for about 25 minutes or 15 minutes for mini cupcakes.

Ice with your favourite ganache or icing recipe or slice and fill with strawberries and cream. I recommend my chcolate buttercream icing //www.recipecommunity.com.au/baking-sweet-recipes/chocolate-buttercream-frosting/86479

or for something special try my swiss meringue buttercream icing //www.recipecommunity.com.au/desserts-sweets-recipes/swiss-meringue-buttercream-icing/52176

    I love this recipe and have used it many times now for birthday cakes and cupcakes!  It's always a hit.  i have reduced the sugar to 280gr to be a bit less sweet.

  • Wow! These taste absolutely

    Wow! These taste absolutely fabulous and the texture is really spongy and light. I made them for Fathers Day, probably the best cupcake I've made!! The icing is also lovely and rich, I might make it a little firmer for next time though.
