reliable, versatile cake that can be made in stages and tastes great, goes a long way and stays fresh for atleast 4 days (if any left!)
In a large sauce pan put butter, water, sugar and bicarb. bring to boil and then let gently simmer for 3-5 mins.
Leave to cool ( 5 hours later is just fine!) if you have used a large pot for first stage you can add other ingredients to this and save yourself dishes.
and then add wet ingredients first eg: eggs (lightly beaten), vanilla, and banana if adding. then dry ingredients - sifted flour and other dry ingredients if adding cocoa.
Mix well and then pour into a lined baking dish and cook for 45 mins on 180 celcius. if fan forced check it at 35- 40 mins
This cake can be iced by spreading top of cake with butter when fresh out of oven and then spreading a mix of sugar and cinnamon over the top.
This cake is solid enough to make castles, teddybears, turtles and whatever creature has captured your child's imagination at birthday time.
