This week from Thursday our Silvercrest Kitchen Tools Hand Mixer Set, a stand mixer which can detach from it’s base to become a handy hand mixer, will be available for £24.99 in the middle aisle.
We’re calling on My Lidl to give some inspiration to any budding bakers by sharing your favourite cupcake recipes. We can’t wait to hear about your bakes.
I love making cakes with my kids and our favourite cakes to make are lemon flavoured. We use the basic recipe, grate loads of zest into it. When baked we cut out the top of the cake and put in a blob of lemon curd and then top with lemon icing.
No favourite recipe, just variations on standard cake mix of :
2tsp baking powder
and a good mixing!
into cake cases and into the oven for about 13 minutes, maybe a couple more at the gas mark of 5ish on my oven.
for chocolate substitute cocoa for some of the flour - the more the chocolatier (obviously, but at least an ounce I think)
add lemon juice and zest for lemon flavour, and nice zesty, lemony icing
coffee and walnut variant by adding strong coffee, crushed walnuts and topping with a coffee flavoured frosting (butter, icing, coffee, cream cheese to taste)
no exact measurements apart from the original recipe.
