Khaki Cake

Recipe from Cake Bible

Khaki Cake is my favourite cake. Not only is it inventive and moist - it has very tasty ingredients including sultanas, coconut and golden syrup. This gives the cake a very pleasant taste and lovely texture. What I love best about this cake is the optional icing. Depending on your fridge ingredients and cravings at the time of baking, this cake is perfect for cream cheese icing or simply plain. Either way it tastes delicious. I would recommend this cake to anyone wanting to try something a little bit different.

Cake Mixture:
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tblsp golden syrup
  • 1/2 tsp bi-carb soda
  • 125g butter
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 cups plain flour
  • pinch salt
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 1/3 cup sultanas
  • desiccated coconut, as much wanted (recommended 1 cup)
Cream Cheese Icing (optional):
  • 125g softened cream cheese
  • 25g softened butter
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 250g icing sugar
(half quantity for less icing - this makes a lot)

Warm milk and golden syrup together, then stir. Add bi-carb soda and allow to cool. Cream butter and sugar, then beat in egg. Pour cooled milk mixture into butter mixture, then sift in flour, salt and baking powder. Beat well. Add sultanas and vanilla, mix well. Pour into prepared cake tin and bake for 45 minutes at 180'C. When cool, ice with cream cheese icing (optional). See Icings and Sauces Page on Blog for recipe.
