  • baking powder
  • baking soda
  • salt
  • large eggs

A super quick and easy cake recipe – no mixer required. All you’ll need is two bowls and a whisk! Simply combine the dry ingredients in one bowl, then combine the wet ingredients in the other.

Combine the two mixtures together, and pour half of the batter into a bundt pan. Spoon the jam over the batter, then pour the remaining batter on top.

You’ll bake this cake for 45 – 50 minutes until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean. Let cool for 10 minutes, then invert onto your favourite cake stand or serving plate where you’ll allow the cake to cool completely before glazing.

Once cooled, top with a sweet glaze, then slice and serve!

Hi, I recently just made this and I made sure I had all the exact ingredients and followed step by step. But when I started mixing in the dry ingredients the mixture started becoming incredibly dry, so dry that it felt as if I was making dough. I had to add a bit of milk since my hand felt like it was about to fall off and even then it was still super dense, and I didn’t wanna add anymore since I didn’t want to deviate from your resipe. Do you have any idea why this happened? Thank you and I think the idea of the is great.

Hi Cinthya, I'm sorry you're having trouble with my recipe. My cake batters are normally on the thick side, but never too thick that it's almost dough-like. It does sound to me like too much flour. Did you weigh your flour out in grams or did you use cups?

For best results, I highly recommend using the gram measurements (with a digital scale), rather than the cup measurements. Cup measurements are simply not accurate enough.

I hope this helps.
