Light in Flavour

When you want a delicate sweetness in your baking, using White Sugar or Caster Sugar can provide a subtle sweetness that enhances the other flavours without overpowering them.

Fruity

Using fruit can add a natural, fruity sweetness to baking, creating a refreshing, light flavour or adding sweet tartness. White Sugar or Caster Sugar in baking, allows the flavour of the fruit to shine and Jam Setting Sugar preserves the taste of fruit in vibrant jams.

Nutty

Coconut Sugar bring a subtle nuttiness to baked goods, elevating the taste with a mild, natural sweetness and pairs beautifully with tropical flavours.

Spiced

Using sugars with spices like cinnamon, ginger, licorice or chai can lend a warm, aromatic sweetness to baking.

Caramel

Utilising brown sugars or incorporating caramelised sugar syrups creates a richer, deeper flavor profile, adding a hint of caramel or toffee-like taste.

Chocolate

Chocolate adds a decadent richness to baked goods with its deep cocoa flavour, making it perfect for indulgent treats. Try adding a deep flavoured Brown Sugar to the mix for enhanced chocolate flavour.

Method
Preheat oven to 180°C conventional / 160°C fan bake. Grease 2 x 20cm round cake tins and line with baking paper.
In a large bowl, cream Chelsea White Sugar and Tararua Butter until pale and fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in vanilla essence.
Sift in Edmonds Standard Grade Flour and Edmonds Baking Powder. Mix well. Finally, add Meadow Fresh Original Milk and stir until smooth.
Divide mixture evenly between prepared tins and smooth the surface. Bake for 25-30 minutes, until golden brown and the top of the cake springs back when lightly pressed. Leave to cool in tins for 10 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
Place one of the cooled cake layers on a serving plate. Spread with icing, then add the second cake layer. Ice the cake all over (use a cake comb to create a nice pattern around the outside, if you like) and decorate with sprinkles, if using.

Vanilla Icing
Using an electric mixer, beat Tararua Butter until pale and creamy. Add remaining ingredients and mix on low speed for 1 minute, then on medium speed for 6 minutes, until light and fluffy.

NOTE: This mixture can also be used to make 18 cupcakes. Bake at the same temperature but reduce cooking time to 20 minutes.
