Ingredients you need & substitutes

While the full printable recipe is written below, this is the section to lớn read if you’re wondering about ingredient substitutions or how these ingredients work in the recipe.

Large eggsSugar: I use white castor sugar. It dissolves much easier & faster when whisked with the eggs. You can use white granulated sugar if castor sugar is unavailable. Just whisk it with the eggs a few minutes longer lớn ensure that its nicely dissolved.Whipping or heavy cream: The cream is the star of this recipe, producing that velvety texture. With its high fat content, the cream is the ingredient that replaces the butter & oil. Use full fat cream, not pouring cream. Full fat cream is the same type you use when whipping for frostings. Self raising flour: Self raising flour is already mixed with raising agents.

No self raising flour? No problem, here is how you can substitute it for this particular recipe:

This recipe uses 1 ½ cups of self raising flour. Khổng lồ substitute, use either 1 ½ cups all purpose OR plain OR cake flour. Add in 2 ½ level teaspoons of baking powder. Whisk together khổng lồ combine and then use in place of the self raising flour.

Tips for success

Do not overbeat the batter:

When it"s time to showroom your flour lớn the mix, simply fold it in. Use a spatula instead of your beaters for this step.

Folding the flour into the batter in a gentle motion keeps it aerated and prevents a dense dry bake.

Double the recipe for a layer cake:

This recipe can easily be doubled to lớn make a two layer cake. Simply divide the batter into two 8 inch/20cm baking pans and bake for 35 minutes.

Don"t over bake:

Check the cake when it"s 25 minutes into the baking time. All ovens are different. Some bake faster or slower than others.

At 25 minutes it"s safe to kiểm tra if the cake is baked by inserting a skewer into the middle. If the skewer comes out clean, that means without any batter clinging on lớn it, then it"s baked.

If not, leave it in the oven and check every 5 minutes after that. Over baking will lead khổng lồ a dry dense textured cake.


At room temperature: This cake will keep for 3 to 4 days covered at room temperature.

Freezing: For longer term storage, it can be wrapped in plastic wrap as a whole cake or cut into pieces, wrapped individually, then frozen. Freeze the cake without frosting.

Defrost the cake completely at room temperature before frosting.
