Since cake is what I "do", I can't say that any is my real favourite. When you are baking it, testing and decorating it becomes a little much. However, I made a new recipe for a cake I made for my MIL and it was delicious. It was a strawberry cake with chunks of fresh strawberries and puree in the batter and a strawberry buttercream filling and frosting. Yum!

Living gluten/dairy/sugar/fat/caffiene-free and loving it!

I like cupcakes (chocolate, vanilla, strawberry), pancakes, doughnuts and one thing I've ordered it from ChefOnline . Not sure the name, it was some kind of goldish spiral, really really sweet and tasty.

Two cakes, Italian style

In response to previous post, here are the two recipes I promised:

Rosy's Chocolate Cake:

3 eggs, separated
3 tbsp plain flour
80g butter
200g dark chocolate drops (dark)
100g sugar

Separate the eggs. Beat the yolks and the sugar together and then add the flour, Beat again.
Whip the egg whites to form firm peaks and add the dark chocolate drops.
Combine all the ingredients together, folding carefully.
Line the baking tin with non-stick paper, and put the cake mix in.
Turn the oven on and set to 150°C.
Put the cake into the cold oven and leave for 20 mins, or until the cake is risen and firmed up.

This is very typical of the style of cake making around here.

Simona's Hazelnut Cake

Preheat the oven to 160°

Beat 6 egg yolks together with 150g sugar
60g potato flour
1 sachet of raising agent
Vanilla flavouring to taste
250g toasted ground hazelnuts
6 egg whites whipped to a firm snow

Put the mix into a lined and greased pan and bake until golden.
