SIMPLE CAKE RECIPE FOR BEGINNERS

If you are a beginner , like me, you are probably looking for simple recipes that are easy to execute to build your confidence over time.

if you love cake, who doesn't? you will love this simple cake recipe for passion cake.
the cake is moist, fluffy and oh so delicious.

I do not have a sweet tooth so I always cut down the sugar in most recipes. Doesn't make a difference anyway.
so,here is what you will need
2 cups self raising flour
4 eggs
1 cup sugar
passion fruit pulp (equivalent of 10 passion fruits)
2 tablespoons of softened butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)



method
pre heat your oven to 200 degrees Celsius (375 Fahrenheit)
separate your eggs and whisk the butter with the sugar until you have a pale mixture
add in the egg yolks and whisk. whisk in enough air as this is important in maing your cake nice and fluffy
fold in the flour alternating with the passion fruit pulp.
in a separate bowl, whisk the egg whites until soft peaks and fold into the cake batter
pour your batter into two 9 inch cake pans and bake for 30-40 minutes or until a toothpick stuck in the middle comes out clean.

you can accompany this cake with a passion fruit pulp syrup or a butter cream icing.
