S0 I decided to do it again. Yep! I made another video and surprisingly it went a lot easier than last time. Now I’m not saying that the last video was hard, I’m saying that this time I had a better idea on what I was doing.
I was able to set up all the ingredients and equipment easy enough and this time have better lighting as my boyfriend suggested using our tall lamp and by doing this it lightened up the room so much better.
Now last week my first video came out on Thursday and a blog for it Friday and I did that because I honestly didn’t plan it (not everything has to be planned). However if I am going to keep this as a regular thing I honestly need to plan it and so I did. So I thought because I already have a weekly blog post that comes out every week on Wednesday’s I decided to bring another one out on Friday’s where both the blog and video will be released at 5 o’clock.
For this video, I decided to put a small twist on a recipe I absolutely love. Lemon Cake.
Ok! so it’s not a big twist all I did was instead of baking it in a loaf tin I used a try that consisted of 8 mini loaf tray’s. I thought this would be a cute idea and it makes it easy to eat and share with others. (Yes! I know I considered sharing! crazy)
There is something about lemons that I am obsessed with. I love the sharpness and the fresh taste they give and when there is a dessert with lemon in it I must try it. Like seriously even on occasions I just eat slices of lemons. (sorry if that’s weird). In all honesty, how could you not like lemon cake, it’s easy to make and easy to eat. It is a recipe that doesn’t require much fuss at all and that’s the best bit.
Below is the recipe I used. It’s a recipe that my family have been using for so long and we have protected the paper by laminating it (it’s used a lot, it needed protection.) However because of this I don’t know where the recipe originated from. (sorry). So I have put together the recipe so you can give it a try. Like I said this mixture makes 1 loaf cake or 8 mini loaf, both of which have very different cooking times. 55 mins for the loaf, and 20 mins for the mini loafs
Now the good thing about this recipe is that you can change it up. Like I’ve said I used a baking tray with mini loafs rather than one large loaf tin. Another good idea is you don’t have to use just lemons, you can use lemons and limes and this combination is great.
Like all my other recipes this is easy and for a lemon cake, that’s what you want. You can make batches and batches of the cake mixture and share them with your family and friends and it takes no time at all. Once the cake is cooled it’s ready to serve, easy as that.
I think the thing that makes these cakes is the lemon drizzle sauce, a simple combination of lemon juice and caster sugar. It tastes amazing and it’s best to put this on the cakes as soon as they come out of the oven, because that way the cakes soak up the sauce a lot more.
However, you can use something different to put on top of the cake. Lemon icing, this is icing sugar and lemon juice. That’s it!! Now be careful making it because you need a good ration of sugar to lemon juice, so just add a spoonful at a time until you get a smooth consistency. You can then either spread the icing on the cakes or place the icing in a piping bag and drizzle over the top. Just have fun and do what you want. Me? I kept it simple.
So there you have it. I was actually surprised how easy it was to set up the camera, making the cake while filming, edit the video, create this blog and have them scheduled for 5. I honestly thought it was going to take all day but it didn’t. It took about 4 hours and I’m proud of that.
I hope you guys are enjoying the blog post and the video’s, I’m having fun creating them. If you have anything you would like me to make or want to see on the blog you can either email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org or contact me on my Twitter https://twitter.com/AmyBakes94
