How about a crunchy top for a deliciously moist and supple cake? That just melts in your mouth with sweet crunchy pleasure....any guesses? ;)
You need to have these for a better idea :)
200 gm butter softened
200 gm castor sugar
1 cup milk
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp soda
200 gm white flour
1 tsp orange/lemon zest
100 gm sugar granulated
90 gm butter melted
First, beat butter with sugar until fluffy. Add one egg at a time and keep beating. Add salt and zest.
Sift dry ingredients together in large bowl and pour over the egg and butter mixture in two lots altering with milk. Fold lightly and pour the batter into prepared cake pan. Bake for about 30 minutes in a preheated moderate oven.
In the meanwhile, mix the granulated sugar with melted butter and pout this over hot cake. This will get absorbed by the cake and leave behind a crunchy top.
Simple... but heavenly yummy...
