Instructions

Cake

  • If you need to mill the sweetener for the icing, do this now 20 seconds / speed 9 / mc on, remove and set aside
  • Preheat oven to 150C fan forced or 160C conventional and line a 20cm cake tin with baking paper or grease well with butter
  • Separate egg whites from yolks, set aside the egg yolks for step 7
  • (Without washing the mixer from step 1) place egg whites and cream of tartar into the mixer and insert butterfly, whip 2 minutes / speed 3 / mc off
  • Add sweetener, whip 2 minutes / speed 3 / mc off
  • Remove whipped egg whites and set aside, remove butterfly
  • Without washing the bowl, add all remaining ingredients including the yolks, excluding the egg whites, blend 30 seconds / speed 4 / mc on
  • Scrape down, blend 10 seconds / speed 4 / mc on
  • Add half of the whipped egg whites to the cake mixture, blend 10 seconds / speed 4 / mc off, scrape down and also loosen any mixture from the bottom of the bowl and under the blades
  • Add the remaining egg whites, blend 10 seconds / speed 4 / mc off
  • If there is still visible unmixed egg whites, using your spatula fold this into the cake mixture to combine
  • Transfer half cake mixture into lined tin, sprinkle the cinnamon swirl ingredients onto the cake mixture as a layer
  • Transfer the remaining cake mixture on top and spread out evenly with a spatula
  • Remove any remaining mixture from the blades by spinning the empty bowl 2 seconds / speed 10 / mc on, add the extra mixture to the tin
  • Bake 30-45 minutes checking cake from 30 minutes onwards. You’ll know it’s done as it won’t wobble, and a skewer will come out clean
  • Turn off the oven, leave the fan running and oven door ajar and leave the cake in the oven for a further 10 minutes. This will help prevent the cake sinking
  • Take the cake out of the oven, allow cake to cool slightly then prepare icing
  • Icing
