One Egg Dinner Cake #TheCakeSliceBakers

 

Here we are the June 2021 edition of the Cake Slice Bakers. For 2021; we are baking from Little Everyday Cakes: 50+ Perfectly Proportioned Confections to Enjoy Any Day of the Week by Candace Floyd.* I can't believe that we're already in a new year. In many ways 2020 dragged on as the shelter-in-place orders continued month after month; on the other hand, it was a completely blur because there weren't milestones to mark the passage of time.

In this group, we are given a selection of three cake recipes. We each choose one cake to bake, and then on the 20th - never before - we all post about our cake on our blogs. There are a few rules that we follow, but the most important ones are to have fun and enjoy baking & eating cakes!



Follow our FacebookInstagram, and Pinterest pages where you can find all of our cakes, as well as inspiration for many other cakes. You can also click on the links below to take you to each of our cakes. If you have a blog and are interested in joining The Cake Slice Bakers and baking along with us, please send an email to thecakeslicebakers at gmail dot com for more details.

The Cake Slice Bakers also have a new Facebook group called The Cake Slice Bakers and Friends. This group is perfect for those who do not have a blog but want to join in the fun and bake through this book. Our choices for June 2021 were ~

One Egg Dinner Cake

I have several friends with hens, and I love using them! Jake came home with a bunch after a bike ride with Kevin. And with this being a one-egg cake, I could make this eight times with the eggs from the Brookhouser hens.

Ingredients makes two 6-inch round cakes

  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup organic granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla paste (or use extract if you don't have paste)
  • 3/4 cup milk (I used whole milk)
  • Also needed (optional): ice cream and chocolate sauce for serving

Procedure
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Butter two six-inch round pans and set aside

Cream the butter and sugar in a bowl until lightened and fluffy.

Whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt.  Set aside. Whisk together the milk and vanilla paste. Set aside.

Add one-third of the flour mixture into the butter and beat until combined followed by one-half of the milk. Repeat with another third of the flour and the remaining milk. Finish with the last of the flour and beat until smooth.

Pour batter into prepared pans and bake for about an 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center removes cleanly. 

Let cool in pan for 15 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely. Slice into wedges and serve with ice cream and chocolate sauce, if you wish.


That's a wrap for the June #TheCakeSliceBakers' event. We'll be back next month with three more cakes to inspire you.

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

Hot Chocolate Agasajo-Style {Spice It Up!}

photo by D For my Spice It Up! kiddos this week, I was looking for an exotic drink to serve while we learned about saffron. I found a recipe from food historian Maricel Presilla that mimicked traditional Spanish hot chocolate from the 17th century where it was served at lavish receptions called agasajos . When I teach, I don't always get to shoot photos. Thankfully, D grabbed my camera and snapped a few. Ingredients serves 14-16 1 gallon organic whole milk 3 T dried rosebuds - or 2 t rosewater 2 t saffron threads, lightly crushed 3 T ground cinnamon 3 whole tepin chiles, crushed 2 vanilla beans, split lengthwise 1 C organic granulated sugar 1 lb. bittersweet chocolate Procedure In a large soup pot that can hold a gallon plus, combine milk, dried rosebuds (or rosewater, if you are using that), saffron threads, ground cinnamon, chiles, vanilla beans, and sugar and warm over medium heat till it steams. Whisk to dissolve sugar, then lower heat an

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!
