One of my favourite hobbies is baking. I love to bake (even though recently I have been neglecting it). I have not baked many things, but one thing I have seemed to mastered is the Madeira Cake. The good thing about the Madeira Cake, is that once you have got the hang of making the simple one, you can add anything into the mixture and it still tastes great! This simple recipe that I will share with you, has always left my family wanting more (greedy lot!).
8oz (225g) Self-Raising flour
8oz (225g) Unsalted butter (eg. Stork)
8oz (225g) Caster Sugar
You will need:
Fork (to whisk the eggs)
1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4. Grease a loaf tin with butter/oil and line it with greaseproof paper.
2. Pour the butter and sugar into the bowl and start to cream until light and fluffy. (If you do not know what this looks like then dip your finger to taste it, make sure you cannot taste any sugar crystals or very little).
3. Whisk the eggs with the fork until you cannot see any yolk left in it. When finished whisking, pour it into the mixture.
4. Pour the flour in bit by bit (2-3 tablespoons at a time). If you pour all the flour in at once, it will become to hard to stir.
5. Spoon the mixture into the prepared tin and lightly level on top. Make sure the mixture is about 3/4 of the tin. If you have too much for one tin and put the rest of the mixture in another one.
6. Put it on the middle shelf for 30-40 mins, or until lightly golden brown on the top. Put a knife/skewer into the middle of the cake to see if comes out clean. If not, place it back into the oven.
7. Remove from the oven and set it aside to cool for 5-10 mins.
1. If you do not have any greaseproof paper then after you butter your tin, pour some flour inside the tin and move it all around until every surface is covered. Then pour the excess into the bin.
2. Whilst you are creaming your butter and sugar, you can add some vanilla and almond flavouring (or any other) if you like those.
