Bake in a Box, two ways

– BAKING –

I have a long over due baking post for you guys! You know when you just get so busy and everything happens at once, well yes that is me currently. Any way,

Thank you so much to Dr. Oetker for sending me* your Bake in a Box cakes and also some extra goodies. If you don’t know what Bake in a box is then it is essentially cakes that you bake in a box. Very good if you either don’t have enough time for baking or you don’t really think you are very good at it, but you love doing it. It is such a genius idea as it isn’t messy at all, when I bake the whole kitchen gets turned upside down (I am not even joking either), there is literally no washing up at the end of this bake. The cakes taste absolutely amazing and they are perfect for little get togethers or work dues and you could even lie and say you made it from scratch haha 😉

In this post I will show you how I made the Lemon and Poppy Seed cake and the Banana and Chocolate chip cake

Lemon and Poppy Seed 

– LETS GET STARTED –

All you will need:

7 tablespoons of milk

Any decorations for your cake

Method: 

Step one: Preheat oven to 190oc / 170oc fan/ gas mark 5

Step two: Pour the sachet contents into the box and then add the 7 tablespoons of milk

Step three: Stir with a fork, you need to try to get rid of all of the lumps.

Step four: Put in the oven and bake for 10 minutes, then take it out and score a 1cm line lengthways in the cake ( through the centre, using a knife ) then return to the oven for 20-15 minutes.

Step five: Remove the cake from the oven and place straight on a cooling rack. Using a knife go around the edges of the cake to loosen it from the sides of the box. Then peel the sides of the box down and remove the cake from the box. Preferably do this when it is cold, however I prefer to do it when it is hot and then leave it to cool on the cooling rack.

Step six: ONCE COOL, you can decorate however you like. Enjoy.

I decorated my cake with some of their Easy Ice Pink icing, THAT TASTED AMAZING CAN I JUST SAY! then I added some of their Mini Wafer Flowers  and sprinkled some of their Bold and Bright sprinkles, just the yellow ones over the top. I loved how the icing was the perfect consistency and it harden up pretty quick. This is such a pretty cake!

This is one of my favourite cakes that I have ever made/decorated. I really like how quick and easy it was and I didn’t even stress about making sure it was going to bake correctly.

I decorated my cake by melting some of Dr. Otekers Dark chocolate chunks and spreading this over the top of my cake. Then I added some of their Chocolate Hearts on top. Lastly, sprinkling some of their Brights and Bold sprinkles, just the yellow sprinkles across the top. The chocolate on top didn’t make the cake sickly at all because the cake was banana and chocolate, IT JUST ADDED MORE CHOCOLATE, WHO DOESN’T LOVE CHOCOLATE?! It only lasted about 2 minutes though as everyone ate it haha..

  2. Still think this is a crazy good idea. I’ve never seen them in the shops though. Both look amazing but I think I would go for the lemon and poppy seed myself 😉 Great post
