Cherry Bakewell Cake

March bake event it is!

Pardon me while I complain about my oven. Wish I had the luxury of a built-in oven where more trays could bake together but I need space! I want an oven with better heat distribution too. Any recommendations on a good stand-alone oven brand or model?

Anyway, instead of waiting for 8 inch trays to bake one by one, I make small mini cakes this time :) I knew I had to play with the timing and temperature which I lowered and to much of my relief it was a success!


This recipe was just enough for 3 mini cakes. Not a girl to make sure things match, I have rectangular, round and heart shape cakes. The basic sponge is fluffy and soft. I reduced the sugar content of my bake so it was definitely not overwhelming to take another bite~


Kel is touching down to Singapore in few hours time from Switzerland as I type; the heart cake is dedicated to him as a welcome home treat. *awww*

To be honest, I have not heard of or tasted Cherry Bakewell Cakes *or the tart version for that matter* before this bake. Thanks to Sweet and Simple Bakes for this (another) fantastic recipe!


Warm love,
Starningblue
