Lotus Biscuit Cake Recipe



Lotus Biscuit Vegan Cake
I've always loved baking since my nana taught me to cook when I used to visit her on weekends, she taught me how to make different cakes and I have never forgotten and I am so thankful for her advice on how to cook and bake. I have set myself challenges on making different versions of cakes but obviously vegan versions without using milk and eggs and now I am getting used to using different alternatives in not just baking but in cooking and making smoothies too.

Lotus biscuits are one of my favorite biscuits to have with coffee and I just thought why not make a cake with the lotus biscuit spread and crushed biscuits as a topping and the combination is just divine.

Ingredients 
Cake ingredients
  • 250g of plain flour 
  • 250ml of water 
  • 200g Caster Sugar 
  • 2 Table spoons of Vitalite
  • 1 Teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda
  • 2 teaspoons of lotus biscuit spread

Icing and topping
  • 150g of icing sugar
  • 2 teaspoons of lotus biscuit spread
  • Vanila extract
  • 4 Lotus Biscuits   

Method 
  1. Preheat the oven 180c
  2. Put all the cake mix together into a mixing bowl and then whisk together with an electric whisk until cake mix is quite thick, if need add more water.
  3. Grease the cake tin, so the cake mix won't stick to the tin and the cake will be easier to get out the tin after.
  4. Put the cake mixture into the cake tin and put into the over for about 25 - 30 minutes till the cake starts to get a golden colour.
  5. Once cooked, leave to cool, then place the cake onto to a plate
  6. whisk the icing ingredients together, more or less water might be needed, my advice would be use a teaspoon at a time. Mix all together until thick and apply to the top of the cake and add the crushed biscuit to the top of the cake.
  7. Enjoy!

What cake should I make next time?
