i have made a cake this weekend which came out perfect, it was more or less level without using baking strips and i will include the recipe further down as what i would like to know is how can i make this more moist and fluffy, will i be ok just adding a little more milk as i would like to use this recipe for another cake i am making this week but i don't have the time for a practice trial and error week! i was amazed at how it turned out so good but wasn't 100% on the taste.
450g McDougall’s premium self -raising flour
450g caster sugar
360g trex / crisco
9 medium free range eggs
3 tbsp milk or buttermilk
the cake was good as it wasn't too sweet although my family said it was good i knew it could be better by being more moist which in turn will make it more fluffier?
i used a 9" square 3 inch deep tin and filled it 2 1/2" full. i baked it for about 2 hours at gas mark 4 for an hour then gas mark 3 for about an hour maybe abit longer!
i am not very good at experimenting so some help would be great in how to perfect this recipe!!
