It doesn't seem like a long time, but I've never been in such a good relationship, so we thought it was a good reason to bake a cake (especially since our relationship started with baking muffins).
I know it's ugly, but I don't have a proper cake mold or something like that, so this will have to make do.
As you can see, my boyfriend and I like the colour orange (the muffins were orange too ;) ).
Ingredients for the cake itself:
-175g butter (I used a dairy free one), softened or melted
-175 powder sugar (I'm sure it has a different name in English, I just can't recall it)
-3 eggs, beaten
-1,5 or 2 tea spoons of baking powder
-a bit of liquid (I used orange flavoured lemonade siroup)
-a few tea spoons of cinnamon
-a bit of vanilla extract
-2 table spoons of coconut
-2 table spoons of broken line seed (because it's healthy)
-a few handfulls of chopped walnuts
How to make it:
Put the butter and the sugar in a bowl, and mix it with a mixer until you get a light and foamy mass. Add the beaten egg, little by little, while mixing it. Sift the flower and add it bit by bit while mixing.
Then add the liquid and mix again until you get a mass without clumps.
Then add the rest of the ingredients: baking powder, cinnamon, vanilla extract, coconut, line seed and the chopped walnuts.
Mix again and then the mixture is ready.
Put it in the mold, make the top even and push a bit in the middle.
Then bake for 55 minutes at 170 degrees Celsius in a pre-heated oven.
Let the cake cool in the mold for a few minutes, then turn it upside-down and put it on roster to cool down (but still IN the mold to keep it moist).
The rest of the ingredients:
-1 package of whipped soy cream
-1 tin of mandarin parts
-fondant glazing (the kind that turns into a liquid when heated)
-orange food colouring.
Whip the whipped soy cream until it's the right consistency.
Saw the top of the cake of, and open the tin of mandarin parts.
Put the mandarin parts on the cake and the whipped soy cream on top of that.
Then put the top of the cake back on the cake.
Heat the glazing in the microwave until it melts, then add the food colouring and stir.
Heat it again and pour it over the cake.
Cool the cake in the fridge for 2 hours and it's ready to eat!!!
Sorry for the bad translating, but the cake really does taste good ;).
Would you like me to post recipes more often?
Until next time,
