Re: Need a made from scratch cake recipe

I make cake from scratch, but use recipes from when I was in Highschool in the UK so you need scales.

Heres the basic one I use the most

100g (4oz) Margerine, I prefer butter.
100g (4oz) Sugar
2 medium eggs
100g (4oz) Self raising flour

1 Heat oven to 350. grease a 7inch round cake pan.
2. Cream marg and sugar until light and fluffy.
3. Beat eggs in one at a time, adding a timy bit of the flour with each one.
4 Gently fold in the rest of the flour.
5. PLace in prepared cake pans and bake for 20-25minutes.
6. When cool fill with jam or cream, dust with powdered sugar.

If you make all the ingredients 6oz and use 3 eggs, it makes a much taller cake.
You can also replace 1oz of flour with 1oz of cocoa powder to make it chocolate

Re: Need a made from scratch cake recipe

My families all time favorite, super easy chocolate cake

Wacky Cake
3 c flour
2 c sugar
6 Tbs cocoa
2 tsp soda
1 tsp salt
3/4 c salad oil
2 Tbs vinegar
2 tsp vanilla
2 c cold water

Pre-heat oven to 350. Combine dry ingredients, mix in liquid ingredients just until well blended. Pour into greased 9x13 glass baking dish. Bake 30-35 minutes or until cake tests done.

This recipe is also easy to half and bake in a 9x9 baking dish. It also makes really yummy cupcakes, just adjust the baking time.

Re: Need a made from scratch cake recipe

This may be cheating but Martha Stewart has the best chocolate cake recipe with delicious chocolate icing. I only make the whipped icing, the glaze is messy and unneccessary, and it's still super good. I'm going to make it for my son's 2nd bday in a few weeks!
