Weekend baking, part 2 - 110 cakes

Hello Blogging Lovelies, 

Welcome back to Part 2 of my baking weekend. Today we're making "110 cakes."

110 cakes are super simple to make, and are perfect to make with children as it's all about the decorating and less about the measuring, baking, fiddly bits etc. You just add 110 grams of sifted flour, 110 grams of margarine (or butter to make it a bit richer), 110 grams of sugar, 2 eggs, a splash of milk and a teaspoon of baking powder into a bowl and whisk. When it's smooth, you put into paper cake cases and bake at 180 degrees for fifteen minutes. It makes 12-15 cakes depending on how big you want your cakes to be.

These were cakes that are super easy to adapt as well: over the years, I've added chocolate chips, raisins and dried cherries into the mixture and various types of icing. melted chocolate, chocolate buttons, whipped cream, mini-eggs. paper flowers, sprinkles and fruit onto the top of the cakes.

Today, I just went with icing sugar. The cakes last about three days, so I'll be taking some in my lunch box this week. Yummy. 

And so ends my first week blogging - just to say thanks to all the people who've read so far; I've been overwhelmed by the number of hits. If you do like this blog, or any of the posts, either join by Google friend connect (over to the left) or write a comment.
