Hello Karen,thank you for getting back to me,please bear with me im so new to thisone of my neighbours gave me a recipe but i had a look at all the different recipes on here and could not find the one my neighbour gave me,Igot a bit confused this is the recipe she gave me,
12 oz sr flour
12 oz caster sugar
5 eggs size 3 Have you ever done this one it seems very diffrent from all the recipes,on here thank you regards Anne.
The recipe you were given is very similar to the one I tend to use, except I would use 6 large eggs rather than 5.
This is my 'goto' recipe from scratch:
4oz self raising flour
4oz caster sugar
2 large eggs
vanilla essence to taste (1/2 tsp ish)
1/2 tsp baking powder (this is optional)
2 tbsp buttermilk
cream the butter and sugar together until light and creamy
add the eggs and blend (I use an electric hand whisk)
add the buttermilk and vanilla essence and blend
sieve the flour as you add it along with the baking powder
Make sure it is all mixed in.
This fills an 8" cake tin with ease
Bake at 160 for 30 - 40 mins
You can easily bulk it up in multiples of 2 oz: 2oz of flour, butter and sugar to 1 egg. (and one tbsp of buttermilk)
