White Forest Cake
Update: I baked this cake for my son's bday and I got super response below. I shall do a video tutorial super soon.
I am back again with another fabulous cake. Today its my husband's birthday. He usually hates sweets, chocolates, cakes. But his only like is White forest cake. So no other choice I baked a white forest cake. That too in a cooker. You know I am oven less ;). So after all my learnings in my previous bake "Vanilla Butter cake with buttercream frosting" I was all geared up to bake this.
After my LO slept I began baking it. It was 9 30 pm yesterday night. All mixing and baking was done by 10 20 pm. By 10 45 all my icing and cherrying was over. Cake to the refrigerator and I dosed off by 11 00 pm. I felt no pain in baking. May be I got used to.
The recipe is a 9 inch cake and the measurements on 250 ml measuring cup.
Maida- 1.5 cups
Sugar- 3/4 cup
Butter- 100 g
Milk- 150 ml
Vanilla Essence- 1 tbsp
Sugar Syrup- 1 cup
Whipped Cream Frosting:
Whipped Cream Powder- 2 packets
Cold water- 180 ml
Vanilla Essence- 1 tsp
Sugar- 3 tbsp
- Preheat oven/ Cooker.
- Grease the baking pan with butter.
- Place parchment paper and grease it too.
- Take a deep wide bowl.
- Place 100 g butter and beat till fluffy using a hand mixer (whisk attachment).
- Add sugar and whisk until creamy.
- Add eggs and vanilla essence and whisk.
- Add maida and milk alternatively till all is well incorporated.
- Pour the batter to the greased baking tray and bake till cake is completely cooked and skewer comes out clean when pricked in the centre of the cake. (For oven its 350 F and 20 minutes and in cooker it will take around 35 minutes).
- Transfer the cake to a wire rack or plate and let it cool down completely.
- Take a deep bowl and place cold water and whipped cream powder.
- Add vanilla essence and sugar and whisk at high speed for 3 minutes.
- Once the cake is cooled Pour sugar syrup slowly on the cake till it gets completely absorbed.
- Cover the cake with whipped cream frosting and decorate with cherries.
Hope you liked the post. I would suggest you buy standard measuring spoons for accuracy. If you don't find them let me know I shall buy it for you. :)
This is this years gift from me and my LO to him:
