Yummy Mummy Monday: Birthday Cake!

June & July have become two months for celebrations in our house. With June being Ari’s birthday month and July being TPB’s birthday month, I couldn’t resist throwing in a cake recipe!
This is a classic, simple cake, adapted from my Mum’s Be- Ro cookbook (a much loved go- to for our baking growing up). While it isn’t the healthiest recipe I’ve ever featured, I think you need to be a little naughty sometimes! 

I don’t think cake needs much of an introduction, so here goes…

Yummy Mummy Recipe: Classic (Birthday!) Cake

1 1/2 cups flour (swap you fave gluten free mix!)
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups unsalted butter
3 eggs, beaten

1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees
2. Line two 7″ round baking pans with parchment paper (or grease with butter & dust with flour!)
3. In a bowl, combine dry ingredients, followed by eggs
4. Pour equal amounts into the two tins and bake for 25- 30 minutes  (until top is golden brown and you can insert and remove a skewer cleanly)
5. Allow to cool & frost with your favourite icing!

Let them eat cake!

A bit heartfelt thank you to my mother in law for making Ari’s first birthday cakes!
