Hi you cheeky bunnies,

I thought I would share with you my regularly requested bake (it really doesn't last long in our house) - which luckily takes no time at all to whisk together!

Firstly, and most importantly, please arrange all ingredients in a photo-ready pose. Pep talk if needs be.

250g/6oz self raising flour

250/6oz caster sugar

250g/6oz softened butter

3 eggs

vanilla essence
an oven, preheated to 180C/350F/Gas Mark 4 
Cake tin. Pick a shape. Then line it (butter and greaseproof paper)
Cocoa powder! (level 2 cooks only)

Now what?
Just mix everything together. Blend. Whisk. Cream the butter and sugar into a smooth paste before beating in the eggs (one at a time please!). Then gently fold in the flour. 
Because I have advanced cooking skills, I took this a step further and decided to make this into a marble cake. Half the mix, and add (to taste) cocoa powder to one of them. Voila!

Line your tin. It should be snug.


Splodge the two mixtures together to give a marbled effect.

Bake for 24 minutes at 180C/350F/Gas Mark 4 until its cooked. 

I like to cover mine in icing. This is buttercream (2 parts sugar to butter). I marbled it too.
