Mothers Day is coming

Hey dads why not pull out all the stops and help your kids make this full proof, easy  cake for Mothers day on the 16th March

  1. 8oz Plain flour
  2. 9oz Caster Sugar
  3. 9oz Butter
  4. 4 eggs
  5. 1tsp of baking powder
  6. 2oz cocoa powder

Put all ingredients in a bowl and whisk with an electric mixer for 5min. Grease two 6inch cake tins and divide cake mix between them. Place in pre heated oven at 170 and cook for about 20 min or until done (if you press gently on top it should bounce back) leave to cool for 5 min then turn out on cooling rack.

Filling

  1. 2oz caster sugar
  2. 2 oz water
  3. 12  cut in quarters strawberries
  4. 5 oz double cream
  5. 3 drops of vanilla essence

Put the  sugar and water in a pan and boil, take off after half the liquid has gone (Dads you will need to help with this as it  will be very hot) add the vanilla and strawberries, leave to cool. Whip up double cream till soft peaks. Place one of the cake sponges on a plate, add half cream and spread and add half the strawberries, place other sponge on top and repeat with cream and strawberries. Sprinkle with icing sugar.
