Black Bottom Cake!

So the last few days of fruitiness have got me craving pure decadence, and black bottom cake suits that title entirely.

Wacky Sponge cake

During recipe research I turned up an unusual sponge recipe by the name of ‘wacky cake’ a sponge mixture of very little wet ingredient; it’s not something I’ve made before but I can see that the dense sponge accompanies the light fluffy cheese cake mixture perfectly! That’s whats been making black bottom cakes so irresistible all these years aha!

Wacky Cake

  • 1 1/2 c.flour
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 4 tbsp. Baker’s cocoa
  • 1 tsp. soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt

Sift the above ingredients together and make 3 wells in the dry combination. In one add 1/3 cup of oil, the second a teaspoon of vanilla and the 3rd a tablespoon of vinegar!

Over this pour a cup of water and mix thoroughly, bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes! Except don’t; as first we are going to mix up some cool creamy cheese cake mixture, pass the awesome picture below you’ll find out how!!

Nothing to do with my recipe just a totally awesome picture I just found and just had to share!

Cheese Cake

  • 8oz cream cheese
  • Egg
  • 1/3 Sugar
  • Pinch of salt

Beat the above together untill light and fluffy. Bring back to the black bottom mix. For individual cupcakes fill muffin cases with 1/3 batter and a dollop of cream cheese mix.

Bite sized decadence!

Its bake day for me tomorrow so am off for some rest, let me know of any much-needed tips before I embark upon a bakemare, although am quietly hopeful of another triumph in the kitchen!
