Double Chocolate Traybake 🍫 

Hi guys, this week I’ve used a ready prepared cake mix which is definitely unusual for me however I wanted to do/try something different. It also saves so much time and effort especially if you don’t have a lot of free time. It’s really quick and easy anyone can do it regardless of your skills.
Makes: 12

Ingredients 
Cake mix
2 eggs
75ml cold water
Chocolate frosting
55g butter at room temperature
2 tsp milk

Method

1. Too the cake mix into a bowl and add the eggs and water, stirring until smooth. Pour into a small 6 inch baking tin and bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes on gas mark 4.

2. Once baked take out and leave to completely cool down. Tip the frosting into a bowl adding the butter and milk stirring until creamy.

3. Layer the frosting over the cake and sprinkle with white chocolate stars 🌟 🌟

See really easy!! And it’s the perfect kids birthday cake 🎊 

There are many different varieties of the double chocolate traybake but here’s what I used.

Carrot Cake 

Hi guys 😀 so this carrot cake I made was for my Uncles birthday, I usually bake things for him when I have free time and I think everyone loves a classic carrot cake.

Makes a large oven tray. 

Ingredients 
450ml vegetable oil
400g plain flour
2 tap bicarbonate soda
100g caster sugar
350g soft brown sugar
5 eggs
½ tsp salt
2 tap cinnamon
500g grated carrots
100g chopped nuts
50g raisins

Method 

1. Preheat the oven to gas mark 4 and line a oven tray with parchment paper.

2. Mix all of the ingredients together in a large bowl except from the carrots, walnuts and 1 tbsp of flour, mix until smooth. Add the flour to the raisins (to keep them from sinking) then add both the raisins and carrot to the cake mixture.

3. Carefully spoon the mixture into a cake tin and bake for 1 hour and 15 mins.  Once baked remove from the oven and leave to cool down completely, this cake will taste so delicious 😋 it is really nice and moist and would go great with custard if you like it!! 

I using my new phone to take the pictures so hopefully they look better 😀
