My 1st ever Bundt cake

I had to bake a cake today for my son’s playgroup. The playgroup teacher told me not to make a fancy cake with icing or cream on top as in her experience kids didn’t like sticky fingers. Really? Well, her wish was my command and I ventured to make my first ever Bundt cake! I had to buy a Bundt cake mould first and it came with its own recipe.

First, butter and flour the cake mould.

Then whip 250g butter until its soft and fluffy. Add 200g sugar and 4 egg yolks bit by bit.

Alternately add bits and splashes of in total 300g flour/half a packet of baking powder and 1.25dl milk.

Whisk the 4 egg whites together with a pinch of salt. When stiff, add 50g sugar and continue whipping until it turns shiny.

Fold the egg whites into the cake mix.

Separate the mix into two equal parts, add 3 tablespoons of cocoa powder and 2 tablespoons of sugar to one half.

Put the chocolatey part back with the white part and stir briefly and gently to get a marble effect. Fill the cake mix into the mould.

Bake in the oven at 185 degrees Celsius for 50 minutes. Then leave in the mould for another 10 minutes to cool down a bit before turning it over.

Sprinkle with icing sugar and you’ve got yourself a classic grand looking cake!

Now I can’t show you what it looks like cut open and I can’t tell you what it tastes like as the cake is for tomorrow’s playgroup. The cake mix certainly tasted fantabulous!
