A Different Kind

Black Forest Vanilla Cake

This is a cake with an extraordinary taste and liked by everyone.  Got the recipe from Serita who is fast becoming an outstanding baker and watched our friends enjoy it two days ago.  It can be made in a jiffy and always turns out fine.  Hats off to you Serita.  Thank you for taking the time to make the day extra special.

The Recipe

125 gms salted butter; 1 cup caster sugar; 1 1/2 cups flour; 1 tsp baking powder; 2 large eggs; 1 tsp vanilla essence; 2 tbsp home made curds.

For Topping:  1 tin black cherries, drained; 1 cup whipped cream; 3 tbsp grated milk chocolate.

Sieve the flour and baking powder and keep aside.  Cream butter and sugar till fluffy and sugar has dissolved.  Add the vanilla, curds  and eggs, one at a time.   Gently fold in the flour and pour into greased and lined  8 inches round pan.  Bake in preheated oven at 175 C for 45 minutes or until skewer inserted in centre comes out clean.  Cool for at least 3 hours.  Un mould on to cake plate or board.  Spread whipped cream on top.  Sprinkle grated chocolate and top with black cherries.  Looks amazing and tastes fabulous.  Happy Birthday Indra.  May you have many more.
