3/4 C plain flour
3/4 C self raising flour
2/3 C white sugar
Approximately 1 C milk or soy milk
Put the first four ingredients in a bowl and mix the milk in gradually until you reach the desired consistency. Sometimes we use more than a cup of milk, other times it is less - just depends on how accurately the dry ingredients have been measured. Heat a non-stick frypan (I find the non-stick frypan doesn't require butter) and spoon dessertspoonful amounts of batter (we make mini-pikelets as they are easier for Felix to manage). Pikelets are a great snack at any time so I usually try to freeze half of the batch - simply put them in a sealed plastic bag and in the freezer they go.
... Well, cake we did. I mean bake we did! Two big chocolate cakes one of which is smothered in chocolate ganache. It is seriously the best homemade chocolate that I have ever eaten and it is so easy to make as you simply put all the ingredients in the mixer and mix it! What could be easier? The recipe is from Annabel Langbein's The Free Range Cook so if you're after a delicious chocolate cake recipe sneak a peak in her scrummy book. Wonder what's for dessert tonight? Xo
