French Vanilla Cake with whipped cream frosting


On Aug 2nd it’s my daughter 15th b’ day 🎂Mostly on my daughter Birthdays we were celebrating somewhere far away from home. Her birthday is a pretty huge deal in our family.

So big and important that I was too petrified  to bake a homemade birthday cake for the first time in 15 years 😊

 I thought that her special day required a gorgeous professionally decorated cake from the best local bakery.

From this year I started baking special occasion cake at home as my hubby b’ day Pineapple cake with whipped cream Frosting 

our anniversary cake Chocolate cake with whipped cream cheese Frosting.

Due to co-vid 19, we cancelled our trip to Alaska during her b’ day. as we were celebrating b’day at home she wants me to bake a cake for her so, I tried my best to do at this at home with love and she really loved it.at last, I am adding a few pics of Her bday celebration 🎉

Orange Pound cake


Pound cakes are one of the easiest things to bake. It’s one of those cakes you can just whip together and impress people with. You don’t even need a recipe to make one because the recipe lies within the name.

it calls for a pound of flour, a pound of butter a pound of sugar and a pound of eggs. That’s it.If that sounds like a lot of cake, you can cut the ingredients in half — so long as the ratio remains the same, that’s all that matters.

ingredients 

All Purpose  flour 1 1/4 cups 

Softened Butter or olive oil – 1 1/4 cups

Castor sugar 1 1/4 cups

Eggs 4

Baking powder 1 tsp

Orange juice 1/4 cup

Orange zest 1 tbsp

Orange extract 1 tsp (optional )

Sift in the flour  stir and combine it into the batter.Add fresh squeezed Juice and incorporate.

Pour the batter into loaf tin or bundt pan and bake for 40 to 60 minutes or till toothpick or a knife inserted comes out clean. If you notice it is browning too much on the top, cover with foil.

Pineapple Upside Down Cake


This recipe is a fuss-free version of the beloved classic that does not require making a caramel. It has the perfect sweetness, and a fluffy cake that oozes of pineapple flavor and fragrance, because the batter itself has some pineapple juice.

Adapted recipe of Nigella Lawson with little bit tweak.

Original Recipe

INGREDIENTS

butter (for greasing)

2 tablespoons sugar

6 slices canned pineapple in juice (plus 3 tablespoons of the juice)

6 Maraschino cherries

100 gm or 2/3 rd Cup all purpose flour

1 tsp baking powder

¼ th tsp baking soda

100 grams or 1/2 cup butter, softened

100 gm or 1/2 cup Castor sugar

2 large eggs

METHOD

Preheat the oven to 200°C/400ºF. Sprinkle the 2 tbsp of sugar on top of the buttered base, and then arrange the pineapple slices to make a circular pattern.

Fill each pineapple ring with a Maraschino cherries,

Beat butter, sugar, and eggs. Sieve and add flour, baking soda & baking powder mixture

Either using a food processor or electric beater or hand whisk until the batter is smooth. Then pour in the 3 tablespoons juice to thin the batter a bit.

Pour this mixture carefully over the cherry-studded pineapple rings; it will only just cover it, so spread it out gently.

Bake for 30 minutes or till a toothpick come clean. then ease a spatula around the edge of the tin, place a plate on top and turn it upside-down.

Note:-

I have added 3 eggs and 1/2 cup oil.

Instead of all purpose flour, baking soda & powder.prepared batter using self-raising flour.
