Okay so I’m no baking queen, I’m no fancy food blogger, I don’t understand why people love the British bake off , it’s just watching people eat?! I’ll be really honest with you, I have the attention span of a fly! I have set my kitchen on fire numerous times, seriously. I am pretty useless in a kitchen, however when the mood takes me, I love to cook for others and today I fancied making some cakes.
On a mooch around Lidl first thing this morning, I found this box of whoopie pie cake mix for £1.49. All I needed to add was 150ml Milk, 50g of butter and 1 medium egg. All of which I have at home. I know some may think it’s cheating using one of these cake mix boxes but they are so easy to follow and when it comes to people like me who aren’t that great in the kitchen it really takes the pressure off.
When I say it was so simple to make these, I mean SIMPLE. All you do is throw all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and whisk it together. Then using a spoon I divided the mix into discs onto a baking try, and into the oven the oven they go for 10 minutes. I then mixed the cream to go into the centres, using the mix that comes in the box, adding milk.
After taking the discs out of the oven, I let them cool down and put a spoonful of the cream filling between 2 discs. The final step is to leave them in the fridge for an hour, and then they are ready to EAT!!
They are a resounding hit in my house, everyone thought they were yummy! A perfect baking treat for a Sunday.
