The 300k followers cake!
Posted on May 09 2015
You guys, I'm speechless ! 300k?! This is unreal, I'm so thankful and grateful for all of your support and love, or your faith, and for simply being the best!
So I was feeling fancy and have decided to bake a cake for this occasion ( If you have read my Bloch AU interview than you probably know that my guilty pleasure is cooking and baking ) a special cake that will be as awesome as you all are, and oh how I wish that you'll could've eat from it, but sadly, geographically this isn't possible, so I've decided to share with you this recipe for this awesome cake! I hope that you'll enjoy it :)
For the cake
1 cup of self raising flour
3/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons oil
1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
For the frosting / filling :
1 cup of 5% cream cheese
1/2 cup Nutella spread
2 cups whipping cream
1/3 cup sugar
For the decoration :
3 bundles of M&M
Preheat the oven to 160 degrees.
Start with separating the egg yolks and proteins, and place each at a bowl.
Whisk the proteins at a mixer and begin slowly adding sugar and whisk until stiff.
In the meantime, whisk the egg yolks, vanilla extract and the oil together.
Add the oil - egg yolks mix to the proteins and the sugar and start fold them. Add the flour and keep on folding until you've got a smooth mixture.
Pour the mash between 3 cake pans and bake for 30 minutes.
In a mixing bowl, pour the whipping cream and whip until a durable cream comes out.
Take the whip out and pour in the sugar, Nutella and the cream cheese, blend until smooth and start on adding the whipped cream.
Place 1 layer on a plate or a cake stand, with a knife or a spatula, spread the top with frosting. Place the 2nd layer on top and do the same. Place the 3rd layer and spread the frosting evenly on the top and the sides of the cake. Decorate it with M&M's or whatever you feel like, the cake also comes out amazingly without any additions!!
* if you don't have self raising flour, you can use all purpose flour and add a teaspoon of baking powder to it!
* you can bake the cake in one cake pan and cut it into 3 layers after its cool.
* if you don't feel like having a chocolate cream, you can use peanut butter or whatever your heart desires instead of the Nutella!!
Let me know what are your thoughts and if you'd like me to do this more often!
I love you all so much!
