Raspberry Cakey Bites

2 cups of sifted self-raising flour
1 cup of sugar
1/2 a cup of butter
2 eggs
1/4 cup of milk
orange zest

No the first thing I will say is make sure you use self-raising flour. I unfortunately thought I was using it until I packed the ingredients away and realised it was plain flour. Although they aren't too heavy, they obviously didn't rise! I would also say this isn't the perfect cake recipe, I just made it up because I don't have scales but I do have measuring cups. This may not sound promising, but I wanted to share it because they looked quite nice and they are yummy despite them being a bit of a disaster at the same time.

I made them as I would with any cake. I beat together the sugar and butter until they were smooth. I then mixed in the eggs, adding a little of the flour at this point so that the mixture didn't split. I also added the milk so it wasn't dry. I then folded in the rest of the sifted flour, before adding the zest of half an orange and some raspberries. I then also added on some raspberries to the top and granulated sugar to finish it off.

I think I need to practise baking a bit more. Hopefully next time will be a bigger success. But I have definitely been bitten by the baking bug!!

This is my treat tin where the yummy cakey stuff and biscuits live!

  2. Aww, thank you!! They are very pleasant even though they're a bit of a mistake x
