Vanilla and Butterscotch Cake !!!


Again with a cake recipe . Often my readers ask me I don’t give them a egg less cake recipe . In my defence I say to them ….I don’t know how to bake them …lol….but baking with eggs always gives cakes it extra fluffiness …in my opinion . I surely have substitutes for egg and once I only used yoghurt and refined oil instead of eggs & butter but eggs always give edge to the softness of cake . My third cake order was a butterscotch cake . And I hate this flavour . But order is a order and I have to respect individual choices. But I was stubborn to bake a vanilla base and top it up with whipped cream and tossed it up with butterscotch syrup which was freshly prepared by me . Ha ha ha …and it was loved by all who ate it . Late in the night my cellphone rang and it was a thank you call . Phewwww…. what a relief ! The moral of the story is if you love something to eat you will automatically make it as per your choice and taste  and it will reflect the essence of your individuality …and that’s where you develop a niche ….a difference in approach and create wonders . I tried keeping the demand in order and priority but also created something different  not likely the old fashioned butterscotch cake . Keep trying ….keep innovating !!!

Ingredients : Vanilla cake base : 2 eggs, 1 cup refined flour, 1 cup powdered white sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract , 1 cup butter , 1 teaspoon baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda.

Butterscotch Syrup : 50 g butter , 1 cup brown sugar powdered, 1 cup fresh cream .

Cake Icing : butterscotch sprinklers, Whipped cream as per requirement .

Servings : 6 to 7 pieces,

Method : Beat up butter sugar and egg till it doubles it volume and lighter in texture. add in vanilla extract . now mix all the dry ingredients for cake base and cut and fold to a smooth batter. grease a round baking tin and pour in the batter evenly. In a preheated oven bake the cake at 170 degrees centigrade for 25 to 30 minutes. Once baked take it out and cool it till it is okay to cut it . Preferably bake the cake one day before icing so that it doesn’t crumble on the day of icing.

For butterscotch syrup just heat butter and brown sugar together and melt them until it a thick dense liquid . Add in the fresh cream and whip it continuously to have a smooth syrup. It will be done after 5 minutes . Consistency should be smooth pouring .

Whip the cream in a cool room at the time of icing only .

Cut the cake into two halves but horizontally . top one base with whipped. put up the other base and slowly with help of a knife and smoother plate top it up with whipped cream and get a smooth layer on top. Use decorative nozzles to create fizz up and pour in the cooled syrup still flowing though on top and sprinkle butterscotch sprinklers . Cake is ready .
