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!
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
- Culinary Adventures with Camilla
- A Day in the Life on the Farm
Tiny Texas Sheet Cake
- 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
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.
