I’ve had this one saved for a while… I wish I’d remembered it when I was trying out different cupcake recipes! This sounds delicious — and you definitely should bake a cake from scratch now and then! This reminds me a bit of an old fashioned 1-2-3-4 cake..
So, today’s post is for all the mix users out there. I’m going to tell you how to make delicious cake, or cupcakes, in the same time it would take you to make a cake using boxed mix. There’s no creaming, no beating, and there’s none of the artificial rubbish you get in the boxes (said the man who made Rocky Horror Cupcakes – well, none of us, are perfect).
The recipe is Spanish, and comes from a colleague of mine, Maria. When I worked in an office, I used to take cakes to work all the time (if I worked in your office, you’d probably hate me – we’d all be fat, and it would be my fault!). Now that I work on jet planes (the glamour!), it’s rather tricky to bring a little slice of something to work. Just recently though, Maria managed to do exactly that, and shared with me a piece of the lightest, yellowest, most delicious lemon cake I think I’ve ever had. And when she told me the recipe, I nearly laughed: it’s the simplest thing ever, as easy as counting to four. Even if you’d never made anything in your life except cups of tea, you could turn this out perfectly.
Well, I’m convinced! Will definitely be trying it myself…
