Whipping Cream Cake

This recipe is taken from "Piece of Cake". I was attracted to the name of the cake. As I read on, I muttered to myself, "Yup, it's definitely a piece of cake!" Lol!
The book title is so apt because every recipe simply requires using only one mixing bowl. It means you 'dump' all the ingredients in, mix, bake and voila! A cake is baked!


2¼ cups plain flour
1½ cups caster sugar (I used 1 cup)
2 teaspoons baking powder

¾ teaspoon salt

4 large eggs
1½ cups heavy cream / whipping cream ( I used whipping cream)
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1. Whisk flour, baking powder, sugar and salt.

2. Add eggs, cream and vanilla to the flour and beat at medium speed for about 1 minute.

3. Stop to scrape the bottom and side of bowl and beat on high speed for 2 to 3 minutes.

4. Bake in a greased 10-inch / 25-cm bundt tin in preheated oven 170deg C for 45 to 50 minutes.

5. Remove to cool on rack before slicing.

The texture is dense as in a pound cake. It has a nice taste and I find it quite addictive!

    Hi Madine,
    You can use heavy cream insteading whipping cream.
    You can also check out this site for substitution of ingredients.
    Hope this helps!

  4. Hi, Just wondering, this cake does not contain butter? Sally

  5. Hi Sally,
    Whipping cream contains about 35% butterfat. If you want a vegetarian whipping cream, you can visit this site :
    Hope this helps!
