Dick Entry for “Cakes”
In a bowl, cream together 4oz/125g caster sugar and 4oz/125g butter
Break two eggs into a glass or jug, and beat together with a fork. Add the egg to the butter and sugar a bit at a time, stirring it in thoroughly each time
When all the egg is mixed in, sieve 4oz/125g self-raising flour into the mix, and stir in thoroughly
Spoon the bixture into cake cases, and bake in a pre-heated oven at 190C/375F/Gas Mark 5 for ten to fifteen minutes, until they’re golden brown
Then try lots of variations, like adding 2oz of sultanas, or glace cherries, or cocoonut. Try adding spices, or replace a quarter of the flour with cocoa powder. And experiment with icing!
