Friendship cake

Go down

default Friendship cake

Post by Dandelion on 30th November 2011, 4:38 pm

My other half brought back a batch of Friendship cake mixture from work. Nicknamed 'Herman' it lived in our kitchen for ten days, bubbling quietly away and being occasionally fed with flour and milk. When Mr D eventually baked it, it was beautifully sticky. I've found a starter recipe:

Use a large mixing bowl

1 cup (250g/8oz) SR flour
1 cup (300g/10 fl oz or half pint) milk
1/2 cup (125g/4 oz)sugar
2 tsp dried active yeast

NB. I normally use a normal mug

Mix all together then leave 2 days

Continue as below

IF MIXTURE HAS BEEN GIVEN TO YOU

Day 1 - Place in a large mixing bowl and cover with a tea towel
Day 2 - Leave well alone
Day 3 - FEED - 1 cup (250g/8oz) SR flour
1 cup(300g/10 fl oz/half pint) milk
1/2 cup (125g/4 oz) sugar
stir and cover
Day 4 - Stir and cover
Day 5 - Stir and cover
Day 6 - Divide into 3 parts, give 2 away (or give one away and keep one for the next batch!)

Day 7 - ADD to 1 part - 2 cups (500g/8oz) SR flour
3/4 cup (180mls/5ish fl oz)Vegetable Oil
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
2 beaten eggs
1 cup(250g/4oz) sugar
1 chopped eating apple
a handful of sultanas

Mix well and bake in a 8" shallow square tin for 30 - 40 minutes at 180C. (It's nice with brown sugar sprinkled on the top before baking.)

I have heard it said that you can alter the additions, such as putting in chocolate or nuts and banana.
