Dear friends, you were waiting for my feedback and here it is!
Last week, I was challenged by some friends to make an original cake. And I accomplished my duty. I will not forget to mention that my family helped me. Actually, we laughed a lot while going through the cupboards and drawers to find interesting ideas. However, we did not want the cake to be ‘ruined’, because even if the idea was to create a weird cake, we also wanted to eat something good!
Then, how to make a funny cake during a rainy October afternoon?
Here is my recipe to spend a nice moment:
250 g sugar
250 g flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
4 tablespoons oil
1 bag of Haribo World Mix (or other gummy and jelly sweets)
I am sorry to advertise but this brand really tempted me. I simply love the colours and shapes of those sweets.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour the pan of your choice. Using an electric mixer, beat the eggs and sugar in a bowl. Add Orangina, oil, flour and baking soda. Mix well after each addition. In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the different jelly sweets you chose. Heat in the microwave until the sweets melt.
Add it to the mixture and mix until well combined.
Spread into the pan and bake in the preheated oven for about 30 to 40 minutes. A wooden pick inserted in center should come out clean.
Let the cake cool to room temperature in the pan. Run a spatula or sharp knife around the inside of the pan. Invert the cake onto a wire rack and decorate with the sweets you like.
For a moment, I felt as if I was a witch making a secret and dangerous recipe in her cauldron. And if you look at the mixture of melted sweets, I am not far from reality… I have a lot of other ideas to experiment! I do hope you want to make this cake now or perhaps create new recipes even more delicious…
Long live Haribo! Aren’t we saying ‘Haribo makes children happy – and adults too’ 😀
