Homemade Cake Toast can be a live saviour if you are not satisfied with the cake you baked, and turning the failed cake into lovely homemade cake toasts/rusks will be a great way for no wastage.
The taste of Cake Rusk/Toast dipped in milky tea is outstanding and i have to keep telling myself this is my last piece,but then do you think that can ever happen?
Check out how i make it, this recipe is really simple.
For the cake - Preheat oven at 180c
(I like cake toasts to be a bit on the sweeter side)
2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup milk pwd ( the milk pwd makes it extra special, do not skip it)
1 tsp baking pwd
1 tsp baking soda
1/3 cup sugar - add less if you want,but i love it sweet
1 tsp salt
Note : all the ingredients has to be room temperature
1 tin condensed milk - 400 gm
1/2 cup oil
1 tsp vinegar
1 tsp pink colour
1 tbs milk
1 tsp yellow colour
> > in case your mix is very thick,you can dilute the batter with more milk
Sieve all the dry ingredients and keep aside,then whisk all the wet ingredients together for 5 min and fold in the dry mix into the wet batter in 3 batches.
Its really easy,just be gentle and mix in slowly till you have a smooth batter.
Now divide the batter into 2 parts and add in the colour of your choice,i used pink and yellow.
Add a little bit of the pink and yellow cake batter into a non stick cake tin and create a marble effect.
| And i had some pink batter left so i made cupcakes they took 20 min.|
You can also use mini loaf tins to make cake rusks.
This pic is before re-baking to make rusks.
Adding vinegar and yogurt makes the cake get a lift,and for rusks airy cakes are perfect.
See the air pockets in the pic below. That's a good sign.
