We all need those really fast cakes that everyone loves, and that you can always adjust it to be YOU.

Those cakes we whip together and put in the oven 5 minutes before unexpected guests arrive, or when the kids really feel like something sweet.

So here it is…. your next fast and really delicious cake:

Dairy version:

500 m”l (16 oz) whipping cream

4 eggs

1.5 cups sugar

2 cups flour

1 tbsp. baking powder

Vanilla

To make it Dairy-free: use coconut milk (full fat!) or non dairy based whipping cream…. all the rest is the same. Needs to be baked a longer- closer to 50 minutes.

As you can see – no butter or oil. The whipping cream will keep it moist and tasty don’t worry…. If you make it dairy free, use full fat coconut milk, not light

cocoDairy-Free Versions with Chocolate Chip and Cinnamon/Sugar

Mix it all together and here come your personal signatures into place- this fills 2 tall English Cake forms or even 3 medium height forms.

You can add anything…..

1. Cinnamon with sugar – top it over the cake and with a knife swirl it into the dough.

2. Chocolate chips- dark, white, milk or all of the above together.

3. Craisings and nuts.

4. Berries- frozen or fresh.

5. Nuts and cinnamon.

6. Small cut apples, mixed with cinnamon and sugar, sauteed over a pan for a couple of minutes to soften the apples.

Bake in 325F (165C) for about 35-40 minutes (if you make 2, it might take longer) until your cake tester comes out dry.

    1. Mary,
      Oh yes! feel free to bake it in any pan you like- round, bread pan anything- just fill it about 3/4 and the time of baking might vary but it will be fantastic in any pan. Good luck and let me know how it turns out!
