These two cakes I make a lot they are quick and simple and there is no weighing. I found the recipe about 25 years ago and have used it quite a lot. You will need a yogurt pot.They cook in a 2lb loaf tin for 45mins - 1hour on gas mark 4,350f,1800c.
Here is the basic cake mix
1/2 packet butter
2 pots SR flour
1 pot caster sugar
4 tablespoons milk
Beat all the ingredience together until smooth.
Then for this CITRUS one just add
1/2 orange grated rind and juice
1/2 lemon grated rind and juice
And for the CHOC-BANANA one just add
1/2 pot grated dark choclate
1 banana mashed
And they need an icing , so for the CITRUS
2 pots icing sugar , grate in the rest of teh orange and lemon rind , combine the rest of the juices from both and add a few drops at a rime to the icing until it will be able to spread on the cooled cake.
1 pot dark chocolate melted with 1/8 packet of butter in a bowl over hot water , once melted add in 1/2 pot icing sugar. Decorate top of cake.
Ther are another 2 flavours for this basic cake and they are.
RUM N RAISIN
add to the mix
2 pots raisins
2 tablespoons dark rum
just before putting in the oven sprinkle over 2 tablespoons demerara sugar and 2 tablespoons flaked almonds.
For this one you need to put 1 x 340g tin pineapple slices drained and chopped in the bottom of the cake tin along with 1 pot glace cherries chopped in half and 2 pieces of stem ginger cut into small pieces. Now pour in the basic cake mix and cook.
And the answer is yes I have tried these 2 versions as well and they too are VERY nice
ps if you dont have a spare yogurt pot just measure out 100g for every pot
