If there’s one thing I recently discovered about the Finnish or scanny diet is that there’s always a time for coffee cakes & buns. I love it; nothing beats the 3.3o itis over coffee and a delicious coffee cake provided that there’s no frosting over the top.
Here’s a simple marble cake or “tiger cake”It’s one of the traditional recipes I’m most fond of: basic ingredients and no fancy machinery needed. Simplicity at its best, I hope ya’ll enjoy this scanny version of marble cake.
Tiger Cake (marble cake)
1/4 teaspoon pure ground vanilla
2 teaspoons baking powder
190g plain flour
2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tablespoons milk (full cream, organic)
1. Beat soft butter and sugar in a bowl. Add eggs beating well after each addition.
2. Mix vanilla, baking powder and flour in a separate bowl. Sieve this mixture into the same bowl with butter/eggs/sugar and fold carefully to combine.
3. Take 1/3 of the mixture into another bowl. Add cocoa powder and milk and stir to combine.
4. Pour 1/3 of the white mixture into a greased cake tin, add a layer of cocoa mixture in between and top with the rest of the dough. ‘Prick’ the dough with a fork to create the marbling.
5. Bake in preheated oven (175C) for about 45-50 minutes. Cool on a wire rack before serving.
Every time I eat my breakfast at a hotel I’m always stunned at how amazing the eggs are. There’s always a 2nd helping for me when it comes to eggs. How do they make it so delicious? Well there’s a difference all right, it’s the cream in the eggs and forget the oil. Here’s how to get a delicious scramble eggs hotel version. I was pleased and I hope you will :).
