Dish origin:

  • 1Ā½ cups flour (any all purpose flour)

This cake recipe is a must on your list. Bake it as it is or go wild with exotic extras! Here we go-

  • Mix all the ingredients in a large bowl, until you get a smooth, rather thick and sticky mixture, without any lumps of flour.
  • Pour the mixture into 1 round cake pan or 1 english cake pan - depending on the height you wish to receive.
  • Pick-your-extras time! Fruits are wonderful (peaches, strawberries, apples). If you choose to add fruits, have your pick, slice, dice and chuck into the mixture.
  • Bake on 170Ā°C for 35 minutes. Test if it's ready using a toothpick. If it comes out dry, you're golden.

Now choose your toppings - coconut whipped cream (on top or between two layers of cake), melted chocolate, powdered sugar or whatever your belly desires!
