Whether you are a regular reader of my blog, or have stumbled upon it for the first time today, there is something quite obivous about me. I love baking. Actually, it’s a quite a recent love, that have been filled with a lot of new baking challenges. Check out my raspberry meringue tartlets or my Christmas gingerbread wreath if you don’t believe me. Today, I want to talk to you about that sticky toffee drip cake from Bakedin.
So, what is Bakedin?
Bakedin is a baking subscription box created in May 2013 by two baking lovers. Each month comes with a new recipe, developed by world renowned pastry chef Michel Roux. At first sight, it looks like your typical monthly box. You join their baking club and pick your plan. You can choose between 1, 3 or 6 months. Then, you get your box! Finally, you can bake!
What’s great with those boxes is that each comes with a step-by-step recipe card making it easier to achieve the perfect bake. It is great if you are just starting out and don’t have much baking experience behind you! The box will also contain all the dry ingredients you need, weighted to the perfect quantity, alongside some handy extras such as baking paper! You will need to add the fresh ingredients listed on the card to complete the recipe.
Ready, set, bake!
Because the dry ingredients come in the perfect quantity, there is no waste!
Of course, you do not necessarily have to subscribe to a long commitment plan. You can shop one box only if you fancy. Or two at once! It is completely up to you, and allows you to get your hands on boxes from the previous months! Their online shop also have some other products such as mug cakes kit or greeting cards – which actually are a cake in a card! How amazing?!
They got in touch a few weeks ago to work with me and I picked the sticky toffee drip cake baking kit, which is also last month’s baking box. If there is something I love, it is sticky toffee pudding but never have I had ever heard about the cake alternative! And I had also never tried to bake a layered cake before! So I gave it a go! The parcel came with the cake baking kit along with some other extra goodies Bakedin sent over – the chocolate brownie mug mix and the chocolate cookie mug mix. Plus some candies!
As previously mentioned, I had never done a layered cake before but the step-by-step recipe really helped me! I literally just had to follow it. The bag of ingredients have each a number and are chronologically ordered. I knew exactly what to add and when. Easy peasy. My biggest fear with the icing but it turned out okay.
I have not tried the mug cakes before but believe, I will very soon! As per the baking kit I think it is such a great idea! Having all the dry ingrediensd perfectly weighted is such a time savior and everything in the box makes it easier for you! Also the cake was delicious and my flatmates loved it! Nothing better than sharing your bakes with people around you, am I right?!
