Kitchen, Germany - 7th April 2012

By: Eustachia

Hello my friends!

I got all ingredients, so it's time to bake my first cake for Eustachia's Cosmopolitan CookBook.

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-23S81kJXJek/T4BQvivwtdI/AAAAAAAAEKE/yMOd58vX8UI/s576/2012-04-07%252014.20.16.jpg

First i gotta write the recipe into the book. It will be a Banana-Condiment-Cake! Very tasty!

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-eYTOsKLeHVs/T4GNf9DuZTI/AAAAAAAAERw/nP4s89Itu9o/s576/2012-04-07%252017.57.16.jpg

Okay, we need 300 gramms of flour. You can use flour from the supermarket, but i prefer fresh grounded flour.

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-cNHRAgZHVO0/T4BQvhtHXII/AAAAAAAAEJ8/kQTgXrpLANk/s600/2012-04-07%252014.21.04.jpg

Wooohoooo!

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-6Cy6PrjTAwQ/T4BQv-Ea-EI/AAAAAAAAEKA/LsR5Ty8Jhs0/s576/2012-04-07%252014.23.23.jpg

Okay, let's put the flour beside, because first of all i mix the butter with sugar.

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-2qdWyhJppdM/T4BQwXnAsdI/AAAAAAAAEKI/fcLRLhY9WXQ/s576/2012-04-07%252014.27.21.jpg

Then i add 3 eggs, one by one.

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-0Rl5x1c_IeM/T4BQzKMnXbI/AAAAAAAAEK0/SzrXhgAMFOw/s576/2012-04-07%252014.29.15.jpg

Next step is to mix the flour with baking soda..

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-un3GORS987E/T4BQw7shmVI/AAAAAAAAEKY/U2bp_eED8yQ/s600/2012-04-07%252014.31.36.jpg

..baking powder..

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-eIZOqAWDZLI/T4BQwzsYypI/AAAAAAAAEKQ/weDz5plwSTo/s600/2012-04-07%252014.32.54.jpg

..and Gingerbread-condiment.

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-ELkI9F6dgds/T4BQzQblA9I/AAAAAAAAEK4/c9bMp_hGGcU/s600/2012-04-07%252014.33.44.jpg

I mix it all up..

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-tRoraa5kvpA/T4BQyD4chLI/AAAAAAAAEKo/SnT9jf9B5Zc/s600/2012-04-07%252014.34.45.jpg

and put it into the butter-sugar-egg-thing and mix it.  :D

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-blPuK0tFEM8/T4BQy8ueJtI/AAAAAAAAELI/5jWLgrBVOBo/s576/2012-04-07%252014.35.39.jpg

Now we need some baking chocolate.

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-mvTtnqgR9N8/T4BQ0uHfD5I/AAAAAAAAELE/GHnr7gs2PBQ/s576/2012-04-07%252014.39.46.jpg

You can rasp it with a knife, but the easier way is to use a rasp like this one  :)

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-DegEguzeofk/T4BQ0KIYVXI/AAAAAAAAEK8/sNtEZ8kmIBQ/s576/2012-04-07%252014.39.34.jpg

Yeeaaah!

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-uYPqPtJMuRk/T4BQ1LR0BUI/AAAAAAAAELc/R2HypiTEgmc/s576/2012-04-07%252014.40.03.jpg

Next thing we put into our dough are 3-4 bananas.

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-tSURTN1Y0SI/T4BQ1KtVYaI/AAAAAAAAELM/4TxsdVMWPO4/s576/2012-04-07%252014.43.05.jpg

You can mash them with a fork like this...

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-tcEQs8Z2TlQ/T4BQ1oDPtKI/AAAAAAAAELU/VFt1JlWYNbA/s576/2012-04-07%252014.43.45.jpg

But hey.. you know me  ;) i got this cool rasp, so let's put the bananas into it!

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-JSGXn2P4UcI/T4BQ4c6TCaI/AAAAAAAAELs/V_280iXJBC4/s600/2012-04-07%252014.45.00.jpg

Wooohooo.. much easier and faster  :D

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-l7-DlWVwfzc/T4BQ24UkrzI/AAAAAAAAELo/OwEUSvudnz8/s600/2012-04-07%252014.45.34.jpg

Now i have to mix all together

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-dPkQ8LaG9xc/T4BQ2wXGGtI/AAAAAAAAELg/opG8ksGT9rc/s576/2012-04-07%252014.50.37.jpg

And finally we need 2 teaspoons of cocoa for our dough.

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-KpfRk2jracA/T4BQ3lrluyI/AAAAAAAAELk/ZMSTF6LjuQg/s576/2012-04-07%252014.52.16.jpg

Now i butter my cake pan with margarine and put some flour on it

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-ljkfuGeeBRI/T4BQ7fxsRYI/AAAAAAAAEMU/ajjjQ6CIzXw/s576/2012-04-07%252014.57.16.jpg

Then the dough...

https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-7JtEOBlaxdo/T4BQ5dYvr5I/AAAAAAAAEL4/-mHFIDEDHT0/s576/2012-04-07%252015.00.49.jpg

and i bake it at 160C (circulating air) for 55 minutes. The recipe says 60 minutes, but i think its better to take a look at the cake some minutes earlier.. to check out if it is already finished.

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-HYWk9o9DdkY/T4BQ740-ucI/AAAAAAAAEMI/Wsm9Oj8gl3k/s576/2012-04-07%252015.04.14.jpg

After this time i check the cake with a toothpick. If there is no dough at the toothpick, the cake is finshed.  ;) But.. hhmmmm.. i think it not ready yet. Let's give him some more minutes...

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-1dtgDK_dZig/T4BQ6vjVyFI/AAAAAAAAEME/Zg6UGTaWMVg/s576/2012-04-07%252016.02.33.jpg

Okay, now the cake is done.

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-BYFMcp2WNjc/T4BQ7VU5vJI/AAAAAAAAEMM/B-qxny3SuHU/s576/2012-04-07%252016.13.25.jpg

Hmm, but he wont come out of his cake pan... Maybe a cold watered flannel will help..

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-L9592ndR_K0/T4BQ8rqQdcI/AAAAAAAAEMQ/WwSzsoZCz0Q/s576/2012-04-07%252016.14.33.jpg

Oh no.. nooooooo! You cannot believe what happened.. the cake felt out of his cake pan.. but only one half.  :o Oh my god.. what to do now? I tried to make the best of a bad job..


Tattaaa!

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-j-gI5Ncn64k/T4BQ807CGNI/AAAAAAAAEMg/5vzo40-VrSY/s576/2012-04-07%252016.25.16.jpg

I know it isn't looking very good, but hey.. i can handle this with some chocolate!

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-xx1QnPYZGXQ/T4GNf6xB01I/AAAAAAAAERs/-6ruGAKRwrc/s576/2012-04-07%252018.18.41.jpg

And i put some smarties on it, to detract from this horrible looking cake. Hahaha  :p

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-SZtytF8AdbU/T4GNgZ3P5RI/AAAAAAAAER0/ib_TAStRcJo/s576/2012-04-07%252018.29.47.jpg

Finished!

https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-j6ofSaMKTvo/T4GNgrKa9aI/AAAAAAAAESM/UK7YatukA1s/s576/2012-04-07%252018.36.47.jpg

Well, i think it looks great therefore, that i had so much trouble with this cake :) What do you think?

https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-yXViPrzMvXQ/T4GNg5rLy0I/AAAAAAAAER8/jnYzKxwjFkY/s600/2012-04-07%252018.37.02.jpg

And it is sooo yummy!

https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-qsyMLZU2wns/T4GNg9NeKUI/AAAAAAAAESI/yimY-zr1l9I/s600/2012-04-08%252014.50.32.jpg

Don't be afraid of this recipe. Usually the cake is very easy to bake and Eustachia told me, that she never had any trouble like this. But you know about moments like this. There is a camera and everything goes wrong!  :rolleyes:

I hope you enjoyed my first recipe-story... and more will follow! I promise!

Yours
Cooking Carrie
