Bought dh a heart shaped cake tin 2 yrs ago for valentines day and never used it. Thought I could show willing and make one today for him,
need a recipe - hopefully that uses plain flour - if not I can go and get self raising.

make a plain victoria sponge (is there a recipe on the back of the flour packet?), fill with jam and raspberries and dust with icing sugar.

you can use...

8oz flour
8oz marg
8oz sugar (caster)
1.5 oz coco
4 eggs

bake on GM 5 for 30 mins.

(if you use plain/SR flour add a tea spoon of baking powder.) hope all goes well.

weigh your eggs and whatever they weigh, everything else the same...

e.g.
4 eggs weigh 8 oz...
so...
8 oz butter/marg
8oz sugar
8 oz self raising flour

good luck, i bought a mini heart shaped tin from lakeland on friday... so i suppose i had better go and bake that too!!!.. sigh! i've been baking ALL weekend ... ds first birthday!!!
