quick and easy party cakes!
This is a super quick and easy recipe for butterfly cakes that i through together. I think the lemon- curd adds a nicer texture and taste instead of traditional butter icing that can sometimes be a bit sickly!
The recipe makes about 12 cakes.
You Will Need
pre heat oven and line the cake tin with the cases.
gather all the ingredients together and sieve the flour and baking powder into the mixing bowl.
add the sugar, eggs and butter into the mixing bowl.
whisk all ingredients together until the mixture is light and fluffy.
add the vanilla essence and water into the mixture and whisk it all up. the mixture should fall off a spoon easily.
divide the mixture into the cake cases. Place the tray into the oven (middle shelf) and bake for 10 mins.
after 10 mins check the cakes. I normally turn the tray around to make sure all cakes cook evenly and then bake for a further 5 mins or until they are golden brown and you can put a skewer through the cake and it comes out clean.
take cakes out of the oven and tray and leave on a baking tray to cool.
once the cakes are cool cut a shall circle out of the top of each cake.
fill each hole at the top of the cake with lemon- curd. I use home made lemon- curd but any will do.
