Black Bottom Cake!

By Bakerquigs @bakerquigs

So the last few days of fruitiness have got me craving pure decadence, and black bottom cake suits that title entirely.

Black Bottom Cake!

Wacky Sponge cake

During recipe research I turned up an unusual sponge recipe by the name of ‘wacky cake’ a sponge mixture of very little wet ingredient; it’s not something I’ve made before but I can see that the dense sponge accompanies the light fluffy cheese cake mixture perfectly! That’s whats been making black bottom cakes so irresistible all these years aha!

Wacky Cake

  • 1 1/2 c.flour
  • 1 c. sugar
  • 4 tbsp. Baker’s cocoa
  • 1 tsp. soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt

Sift the above ingredients together and make 3 wells in the dry combination. In one add 1/3 cup of oil, the second a teaspoon of vanilla and the 3rd a tablespoon of vinegar!

Over this pour a cup of water and mix thoroughly, bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes! Except don’t; as first we are going to mix up some cool creamy cheese cake mixture, pass the awesome picture below you’ll find out how!!

Nothing to do with my recipe just a totally awesome picture I just found and just had to share!

Cheese Cake

  • 8oz cream cheese
  • Egg
  • 1/3 Sugar
  • Pinch of salt

Beat the above together untill light and fluffy. Bring back to the black bottom mix. For individual cupcakes fill muffin cases with 1/3 batter and a dollop of cream cheese mix.

Bite sized decadence!

Its bake day for me tomorrow so am off for some rest, let me know of any much-needed tips before I embark upon a bakemare, although am quietly hopeful of another triumph in the kitchen!
