Jan's Mud Cake

A gem from one of the home-made community organisation cookbooks my Mum's collected over the years. I've no idea who Jan was, but thanks, this is brilliant cake! (Very happy, Jan!*)

It's not a true mudcake, it's lighter and... sort of like brownies, especially if you cook it in a lamington/brownie tin.

Simple White Cake

I adapted this recipe from one I found online, to create a fluffy, buttery, easy white cake.

Will make one 9" x 13" single layer, two 8" rounds, or a good number of cupcakes (number will vary on size of your tins).

¾ cup butter, room temperature
1½ cups white sugar
3 eggs
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon + ½ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Prepare your pan(s) with butter and flour or paper liners for cupcakes.
  3. Using an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugar together in a medium mixing bowl.
  4. When light and fluffy, add in the eggs, one at a time and blend until fully incorporated.
  5. Add the vanilla and mix in.
  6. Sift the flour, baking powder and salt together.
  7. Add flour mixture in three batches to the butter mixture. Mix each addition just until blended in.
  8. Stir in the milk, mixing on low speed until the batter is smooth.
  9. Put batter into prepared pan(s).
  10. Bake 30 to 40 minutes (20 to 25 for cupcakes) at 350°F. Cake is done when it springs back when touched in the middle.

There's a lot you can do with this cake, you can serve it with a fruit coulis, with a traditional or cooked buttercream, with whipped cream, or covered in a chocolate ganache. Because the cake is just sweet, buttery and vanilla-y, it's a perfect complement to just about any topping.

Frankonian Cheesecake ("Käseplootz")

This is a regional variety of German cheesecake, which is made with quark instead of cream cheese like its American counterpart. Frankonia is a beautiful, quirky, separatist, hilly region of northern Bavaria and is probably best known for its quality white wines.

There is a wide variety of German cheesecakes, often with additonal ingredients (poppyseed, apples, rhubarb...) but this is a traditional, very reduced and simple recipe, and the slices come in flat squares. This also means that while it's quite easy to make, it needs careful preparation and high quality ingredients, otherwise it may taste a bit bland.
