My Mom and husband share a love for Chocolate cake. It goes even further with Keith, he does not classify any cake that is not chocolate as cake. My Dad and I will eat chocolate cake if that is all you are offering, but if you ask us what flavour we prefer it will always be something tangy.
It was my Dad's birthday last month, so when they came down this weekend for a quick visit, I made him his favorite flavour cake - Granadilla!
I used the Chocolate cake recipe posted before and changed it slightly as you will see....
Separate 4 large eggs.
Whisk the whites until they come to soft peaks.
Keep the whisk running and . . . .
Add 1 teaspoon of baking powder,
Add 1¼ cup of sugar,
Add the egg yolks and whisk for 1 more minute.
Stop the whisk
Pour 1 small tin of granadilla in a jug and top up with milk to 250ml , add 200g of soft butter and place in the microwave for 1 minute.
Sift together 1¾ cups of flour,
3 dessert spoons of corn flour (cornstarch)
3 teaspoons baking powder
Now alternatively add the milk mixture and the flour mixture to the egg and sugar mixture, stirring well after each addition.
Pour the mixture into 2 prepared cake tins and bake for 35 minutes at 180°C.
My Dad was very happy with the end result. I used some more granadilla in the icing, and just so you don't think I am over my addiction to lemons, I topped it with lemon zest!
