Ever think back to the simple times, when your biggest concern was whether you got to the dessert counter in time to grab some cake at school?
Ah, school dinner cake. You know the one…a simple white sponge topped with sweet, sticky white icing and an abundance of rainbow sprinkles.
You can slather it with custard or even just enjoy it on its own. Is there really anything better?!
Well, we’ve been getting some serious pangs of nostalgia recently, as people have been sharing their school dinner cake recreations on social media.
So – like half of Instagram – we decided to find a recipe and knock one up ourselves.
That’s where food blogger, Anisa, comes in. She runs foodie Instagram, @anisagrams and YouTube channel Cook With Anisa, and her school dinner cake recipe has been viewed over 300,000 times.
“Who remembers School Dinner Cake here in the UK? Amazing right?,” she says. “The taste & smell takes me right back to primary school.”
Anisa promises that her recipe for the cake is “so easy” that you can knock it together whatever your skill-set in the kitchen
Result! Grab an eight inch baking tin and check out her recipe below:
Add your butter and flour into a bowl and use an electric whisk to mix until fluffy.
Now, add your four eggs one at a time, whisking after each egg so they are completely combined.
Fold your vanilla paste and milk into the mixture along with your self raising flour.
Bake in the oven at 160c, for 30-35 minutes.
In the meantime, make your icing. Simply mix the water and the icing sugar until thick but still runny.
Layer it on top of the cake and add your hundreds and thousands.
