It’s world cake day today, Thursday 26 November, so to celebrate, we’ve pulled three of the best recipes from the Canberra Weekly archives.
Not that you need an excuse to eat cake, but if you wanted one, here it is! There’s a little something here for everyone, from a light and fluffy meringue to a dark and moist chocolate cake.
This recipe from Skye McAlpine’s A Table for Friends is the perfect dessert for after a long lunch in the sunshine. The meringue can be made up to three days in advance and stored in an airtight container.
From Comida Mexicana by Rosa Cienfuegos, this pastel de tres leches, or three-milk cake, is the perfect celebration cake. Topped with cream, strawberries and peaches, how can you resist?
It’s really hard to resist chocolate cake, especially when they’re this easy to make. Whip out that Thermomix (or another ‘all-in-one kitchen machine’) and try your hand at this mocha mud cake.
