3 Cake Recipes to Share

Here are my top three favorite cake recipes because it’s easy. I’m such a lazy baker that I only do easy cakes. And more often than not, they are the stir and bake type. What’s that? Well, for S&B cakes, (if the term is correct), you just dump all the ingredients in a bowl and stir, then you bake and done. So here are the recipes:

1. Easiest Cheesecake

I got this from the Internet, as I was looking for a quick and easy cheesecake to whip. But unfortunately, I totally forgotten the source. So sorry.. x dapat bagi credits.

Ingredients: Oreo Biscuits, 250g cream cheese, 1 egg, 1/4 cup sugar 1 tsp vanilla essence, chocolate chips.

Method:

  • Put half of an oreo biscuit in a baking cup (for cupcakes).
  • Mix cream cheese and sugar till white and fluffy.
  • Beat in egg and vanilla.
  • Pour the mixture into the cups filled with oreo, sprinkle some chocolate chips* and bake for about 20-25 minutes.
    *Alternatively, you can top with blueberries or any other topping.
  • The cake is best eaten when cooled and chilled overnight.

2. Carrot Cake

I got this recipe from youtube. But I altered it a little bit, reducing the sugar and replacing pecan with walnuts.

Ingredients: 2 cups of flour, 1 tsp baking powder, 2 tsp baking soda, 2 tsp cinnamon powder, 1 1/2 cup of sugar, 1/2 tsp salt
4 eggs, 1 1/2 cup of oil, 2 tsp vanilla essence, 1 cup of chopped walnut, 1 cup of raisins, 3 cups of grated carrot

Method:

  • Sift flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt. Combine in sugar.
  • Mix the dry ingredients with eggs, one by one.
  • Pour in the vanilla essence and the oils. And stir.
  • Fold in the chopped walnut and raisins, and lastly fold in the carrot.
  • Pour into a baking pan and bake for about 30 – 40 minutes.
  • Cake is best eaten with a cream cheese topping. (Which I am so lazy to prepare, as usual).

3. Easiest, Tastiest Chocolate Cake

This recipe was passed down to me by my mother. She gave it to me when I was in search for the yummiest chocolate cake recipe. I was considering whether or not to share this, but I thought, what the heck.. if I don’t, the internet is so full of it, anyway. What have I got to lose. As if I’m on cake business pon. If people make money out of this recipe, Alhamdullillah for them. Adalah “share” aku dalam menambah rezeki orang.

Anyway, what I love about this recipe is that, not just that it’s easy.. but it’s also flexible. Eh, panjang, nanti entry lain, saya cerita pasal recipe ni. So, here’s the recipe:

Ingredients: 1 cup superfine flour (I’ve tried ordinary, superfine tastes better), 1 tsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp baking soda, 1/2 cup cocoa powder (use the better brand to guarantee a chocolicious cake), 1 cup sugar, 1 tsp vanilla essence, 1/2 tsp salt, 1 egg, 1/2 cup oil, 1/2 cup evaporated milk, 1/2 cup boiling water (must be boiling, ya).

Method:

  • Sift the flour, baking soda, baking powder and cocoa powder.
  • Pour in the sugar and salt.
  • Pour in all the wet ingredients (egg, oil and milk) except boiling water and stir.
  • When everything is evenly mixed, pour in the boiling bit by bit and stir until all the water have been mixed.
  • You should have a flowy mixture.
  • Pour into a baking pan (I use and 6″ round pan) and bake for about 40 minutes.
  • Cake is best eaten with a chocolate topping or ganache.

So, happy baking and all the best!
