Sometimes you just want a plain simple cake and that is when a recipe for vanilla cake comes in handy. Perfect for a birthday cake or an easy afternoon tea.
This is a recipe from my mum that was on a scrap of paper until now. An oldie but a goldie. It is a dense pound cake style cupcake, which I prefer.
A really great simple cake batter that can be used for cakes or muffins. Easy enough for kids to make and decorate.
Delicious banana pancakes that are made from scratch then flavoured with a hint of vanilla. Ripe mashed bananas give this tasty breakfast an amazing richness.
Use black bananas. In fact, if they turn black, put bananas into freezers to keep for when you're ready to prepare. Once defrosted they will be pulp like and mix into cake batter much more easily giving you a cooked consistency like mud cake. Sometimes requires a little extra time in the oven. Don't panic - just keep testing with a tester and take out when ready. Can be iced with a chocolate ganache. Is delicious once cooled but the flavour really kicks in after 24 hours.
You can easily make these delicious chocolate and vanilla cupcakes with the same batch of cake batter.
