Today I’m going to share a very easy recipe with you, for those times when you want to bake something because you just feel like it, or when you want to quickly throw together some sort of dessert – it’s actually also good for breakfast.
50 g butter
160 g plain flour
180 g caster sugar
2 tsps baking powder
160 ml milk
+ few drops of vanilla extract
+ berries/chocolate/or pretty much anything
- Preheat your oven to 150-190 Celsius degrees (depends on your oven, I did it on 175).
- Measure your ingredients – I used Plemo’s kitchen scale, which was very easy to use. I actually didn’t have to measure the ingredients separately, I could just simply ‘zero down’ the scale and add the next thing. And then the next. And so on.
- Mix them. It doesn’t really matter what order you put them in the bowl, this is a lazy recipe and I’m not a professional baker, but if you need some more guidelines, then first mix the flour, sugar, baking powder together, then add the butter and the milk, mix again, and lastly add the egg and vanilla.
- Pour it into a loaf pan. Or muffin forms. You can actually pour it into anything you’d like, you just have to be careful with the baking time. This is also the point where I added plum to half of the loaf (special request, if it were up to me I would’ve probably added blueberries and/or orange dark chocolate).
- Bake for 35-40 minutes. If you pour it into something smaller than a loaf pan, then the time could change to 20-25-30 minutes, also depending on your oven.
Let it cool a little bit before you dig in and enjoy.
You can go wild, put on whatever you want, I’d like to try it with peanut butter as well, but tragically I just ran out of it.
The kitchen scale that I’ve used in this post is the Plemo Electronic Kitchen Scale, and honestly, it’s very good, measures accurately and looks good. It’s easy to use and let’s be honest, baking and cooking are both a hella lot easier if you have a scale.
You can choose between g and kg, ml/oz and lb, you can even check the temperature of the thing that you’re measuring, not to mention that you can even set an alarm on it, if you have to let something rest before putting it into the oven (oh dude, I still haven’t achieved the perfect pizza crust…).
You can purchase it here.
Lots of love,
