Out of all of my recipes on my website, the one I get asked the most about is my Classic Madeira Birthday Cake.
It’s a perfect staple recipe for all occasions. It’s easy to customise, great to ice and decorate and lends itself to freezing too, oh and it’s delicious!
This Saturday 4th June at 11am GMT I will be baking this recipe live on my Facebook page!
You can come and watch me, ask lots of questions, see how I work in my kitchen and the best part is, you can bake a long at home! I will be making a 7″ round vanilla madeira cake over the course of the day.
The first live video will be me baking the cake and then I will go back on live an hour and a half later when it’s baked so you can see the steps I take next to ensure a flat top and how to keep it moist and fresh for when you want to decorate it!
The ingredients you will need to do it with me at home are;
- 200g self raising flour
- 200g caster sugar
- 200g Stork/butter
- 50g plain flour
- 4 medium eggs
- 1 tsp vanilla
You’ll also need;
- Cake ingredients
- 7″ round tin
- Greaseproof paper & cling film
- Scissors & pencil
- Cake release (spray, tub, tube, whatever you’ve got!)
- Silicone pastry brush
- Big spoon/spatula
- An oven!
I also recommend using a stand mixer for this as I will be, but a hand mixer is also good!
I look forward to seeing you there!
