  • 250 g butter
  • 440 g caster sugar
  • 2 t vanilla extract
  • 6 free-range eggs
  • 420 g flour
  • 1 t baking powder
  • ½ t bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 cup milk
  • Edible gold dust, for decorating

Cooking Instructions

Preheat the oven to 150°C. Beat the butter with the caster sugar and vanilla extract, then add the eggs, one at a time, and beat until pale and creamy. Sift together the flour, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda and mix to incorporate.

Add the milk and whisk steadily to form a creamy batter. Pour into a greased, round 23 cm spring-form cake tin and bake for 1 hour. Cool, then decorate using a stencil and edible gold dust.

Cook’s note: Use stencils from arts and crafts shops to dust icing sugar or edible dust into pretty patterned formations on top of bakes.
