Cake Monday (Rhys)



Vegan cookie dough brownie cake


After a delay in making the cakes due to illness, Rhys is back with his vegan cookie dough/brownie cake....

The brownie layer was made by mixing "brownie flour", baking powder, sugar, banana and water (egg substitute). The Cookie dough layer was made by mixing "cream cocunut sugar" and molasses, water, flour & chocolate chips. Rhys then froze and assembled the layers and then finished by melting chocolate orange over the top.




Scores

Sue - tasted "fine" - too squidgy. VERY RICH 7

Tom - Looked very good, vegan, 8

Adam - Very good - healthy, vegan, minus points for late doing it 8

Kirsty - Minus points for being Late, bit simple but tasted good, not a lot of baking 7

Kristian - Tasted good but super super rich 7

Jamie - Looked good, very sweet, "not sure what it is", 7

Steph - 8

Overall 7.4

Time for cake Monday again and this time its Tom's turn....



Time for cake Monday again and this time its Tom's turn.... 

Tom had a go at making a carrot cake. He started by making the icing - used cinnamon and vanilla extract. For the cake... He added eggs, "lots of butter", ginger and walnuts to a bowl and whisked then cooked.

Overall everyone liked the cake, some thought it was well cooked.... others thought it was burnt... It was quite light and tasted really good. Adam thought it was lacking some "specialist decoration" to take it to the next level.


Overall score 7.8

Cake Monday

Cake Monday!

Kirsty had a go at making a victoria sponge and it was pretty good! She made it by adding eggs, butter, sugar, flour and vanilla and then whisking together. Pour the mix into two tins and then bake. Leave it to cool then whip the butter and jam, spread it and then sandwich together.

Average score: 8 (highest score yet).

Everyone thought Kirsty's cake was really good and the scores reflected that; it was moist, had lots of flavour and looked nice as well. 8's across the board!

Game 2


Cake Monday - April

Much to his dislike, it was Adam's turn to have a go 

Was pretty disappointed he didn't make a pie - he had a go at making a "healthy cake".
To make this cake, Adam blended dark chocolate and coco powder then added raising agent. He then added eggs, cashew butter, dates or figs (he couldn't remember which) and Almond milk. This was then cooked in the oven.

It was supposedly meant to be eaten warm, but we ate it cold instead.

It was a healthy cake (including the raspberries on top) but some thought it was a bit too rich. Good use of substitute ingredients (cashew butter). Generally everyone thought it tasted nice but thought the coco powder on top made it "dusty" and a bit dry,

Average score: 6.7
