How to fix an undercooked cake
We’ve all been there. The house smells amazing. The scent of a freshly-baked cake has filled every corner of your home. You pop over at the oven, the cake is looking just perfect with little peaks of a golden brown crust. You quickly bring it out of the oven, let it cool and get out your cake knife to cut yourself a slice. Only to quickly realise that the cake is still gooey on the inside! Oh snap, looks can indeed be deceiving! Parts of the cake are undercooked.
Fret not my friends, we’ve all been there. I was there just a few weeks ago and since I have a zero-waste policy in my kitchen, I was adamant on finding a way to fix my delicious (albeit a little raw) lemon & vanilla bundt cake. Here’s how I fixed an undercooked cake:
- Slice the cake in portions
- In a bowl, mix together an egg, 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon and some milk.
- You guessed it! We’re turning the cake into french toast.
- Place the cake slices in a small pan over medium heat, let them brown a little before pouring the milk mixture over them.
- Serve warm with a scoop of Carte D’Or Vanilla Ice Cream.
