As easy as 1, 2, 3, 4, 5: a cake to bake

Happy New Year! Put that resolution aside, because…cake.

I’m posting about food for the very first time, which is really odd given how obsessed I am with eating. But with the endless amount of baking and cooking I experienced over the holidays, I just have to share. Feast your eyes on the easiest and most delicious specimen of baked goods known to man kind. 

It’s called 1-2-3-4-5 cake. It’s really that easy.

Combine:

1 egg

2 tablespoons oil

3 tablespoons milk

4 tablespoons sugar

5 tablespoons flour

Mix well.

THAT.IS.IT. I added a half teaspoon of vanilla for a touch of flavoring and one teaspoon baking powder to give it a little rise.

The batter should be smooth and liquid.

I added cut pears on top. Apples work well too. Just cut into half inch pieces, douse with egg wash and cream, and sprinkle a couple rounds of sugar. Mix well. You can add the zest of a small lemon to give it a little punch.

Bake at 400 degrees for 30 mins. You can leave it in the oven for a few minutes longer if you fancy a deeper tan (who doesn’t?) like I do.

Cut, serve, indulge, and say goodbye to that New Year’s resolution.

Resolutions are made to be broken anyway, right?
