|Easiest Strawberry Cake|
Or rather, Easiest Cake From Scratch (click this link for the recipe) in the Whole World... A big thank you and hugs to Lan of Angry Asian Creations for sharing this recipe - it gave me the courage to venture into baking a whole cake from scratch than from a mix. For those daunted by the world of baking - as I was until the muffins and now this beautiful cake - give it a shot and I'm sure it cannot go wrong!
The cake batter seemed a little tough to mix but totally no fuss. I could mix it anyway I liked, didn't need a wire whisk or an electric mixer! At first, I thought my batter looked too thick as compared to the ones I saw in the photos but the recipe does mention that the batter will be very thick.

I guess that's why I kept peeking through the door as it baked to check if it rose properly, anxious to see if I'd mixed it properly.
I doubled the amounts in the original recipe too as my baking pan was huge (more cake for us :)). The only variations I made were to add a quarter teaspoon of powdered nutmeg to the batter and sprinkle granulated sugar on top as I didn't have raw sugar. I wish I did, the crust would have been a nice brown - although the sides and the base were :). I cannot wait to see the look on my hubby's face when I tell him it's from scratch....I couldnt believe I had done it either, as I dug into my first slice. Topped with some cold, vanilla ice cream although the cake didn't need anything; it is yummmm on its own!
Cannot wait to try it with a medley of berries or apples!
