So, please share the link: http://www.virginmediabusiness.co.uk/pitch-to-rich/new-things/the-barking-baking-company/ which will go live on 18th at 10am and will close at 5pm on 20th May. Get everyone in your family to sign it. It would be amazing if we got through.
NOW. Onto this rather splendid creation. Triple decker!? That's just awesome. You don't even need a whisk.
For the cake:
- 50g butter
- 3 pudding spoons (fairly heaped) self raising flour
- 3 pudding spoons caster sugar
- 1 egg
For the icing:
- 1 pudding spoon icing sugar
- A fork of peanut butter (ie just scoop some out with a fork)
- A tiny bit of water (probably a teaspoon)
For the cake
Line two ramekins with baking paper and get the oven to 180.
Pop the butter, sugar and flour in a bowl; if the butter is a bit solid, just let it melt in the microwave for 10 secs at high power. Add in the egg and beat everything up with a fork until it is smooooooth.
Divide the mix between the two ramekins and get them in the oven for about 20 mins - watch them and after 15 mins you may need to cover them with tin foil to prevent them burning. Check they are cooked by stabbing (gently) one with a knife; if it comes out clean then you are done.
For the icing:
Whilst the cake is in the oven, fork out the peanut butter and pop it in a mug. Add the icing sugar and a little water and then stir like made with a fork until it resembles a paste. Get the jam ready but do nothing with it.
When the cakes come out, take them out of the hot ramekins and let them cool - if you are desperate to eat them, as I was, pop them outside on the ground for about a minute to cool them faster (obviously keeping them in their baking paper pouches for this).
When they have cooled sufficiently, take the cake out of the baking paper and cut both in half. Now sandwich each piece of cake (that you just cut up) back together with JUST jam. And then sandwich the two cakes with the peanut butter icing and a little jam. So it should go: cake, jam, cake, peanut butter icing, jam, cake, jam, cake. Phewww.
Top with icing and try and eat it elegantly. Or do an Ed Miliband.
