Google: “A sheet cake or slab cake is a cake baked in a large, flat, rectangular cake pan. They may be made in any flavour, with chocolate and vanilla being the two most common. Commonly made in the home with boxed cake mixes, they can come in a variety of additional flavours, with batter mix-ins such as sprinkles and chocolate chips.” By definition, they are made from a single continuous piece of cake. Ingredients such as nuts, chocolate chips, or coconut may be sprinkled over the top.
Google: “The oat, sometimes called the common oat, is a species of cereal grain grown for its seed, which is known by the same name. While oats are suitable for human consumption as oatmeal and rolled oats, one of the most common uses is as livestock feed. Studies show that oats and oatmeal have many health benefits. These include weight loss, lower blood sugar levels, and a reduced risk of heart disease. Oats are among the healthiest grains on earth. They’re a gluten-free whole grain and a great source of important vitamins, minerals, fiber, and antioxidants.”
Google: “The garden strawberry (or simply strawberry; Fragaria × ananassa); is widely grown hybrid species of the genus Fragaria, collectively known as the strawberries, which are cultivated worldwide for their fruit. The fruit is widely appreciated for its characteristic aroma, bright red colour, juicy texture, and sweetness. It is consumed in large quantities, either fresh or in such prepared foods as jam, juice, pies, ice cream, milkshakes, and chocolates. Artificial strawberry flavourings and aromas are also widely used in products such as candy, soap, lip gloss, perfume, and many others. Strawberries are rich in vitamin C and other antioxidants, which help reduce the risk of serious health conditions like cancer, diabetes, stroke, and heart disease. It’s also an excellent source of: Magnesium. Phosphorous.”
I decided to tryout making it with strawberries, since I last make Berries oats chocolate sprinkles cake. I am also trying different amount of ingredients to the previous one and lower the temperature. I am glad it turns out perfect, beautiful and delicious. Let’s be courage and try a different amount of ingredients!!!!
250 g strawberries, sliced
225 g butter, softened
300 g castor sugar
375 g plain flour
1 c milk
¼ c icing sugar
2 large eggs
3 Tsp baking powder
2 Tsp peppermint essence
1 Tsp salt
Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Spray oil lightly on baking paper and place in a flat baking tray. In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy, 5-7 minutes. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in essence.
In another bowl, mix well flour, baking powder and salt. Next add to creamed mixture alternately with milk, beating well after each addition (batter may appear curdled). Spoon batter to prepared baking tray.
Then smooth the top of batter. Next sprinkle icing sugar using a small sieve on top of batter. Gently press strawberries in to batter:2 rows, and alternate oats making pattern on batter. Repeat gently press strawberries into batter: 2 rows and alternate oats. You should have 3 rows of oats.
Bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, about 25-30 minutes until cake is golden. Switch off oven, close oven door and leave it inside for about 30 minutes. When time up remove tray and put on rack to cool. Then sprinkles chocolates in between strawberries about 4 rows.
Note: You can use any fruits of your choice. You can make coulis instead of pureed sauce. You can make thicker icing glaze: add more icing sugar about 2 c, using milk about 2-4 Tbs or half milk and citrus: lime or lemon. You can use sour cream and yoghurt instead of milk. You can use white chocolate or dark chocolate chips instead of oats.
