Oh, oh….unexpected visitors and no time to bake a cake? Or do you just crave a home made cake and don’t feel like bakeing? Or do you want to bring a special inexpensive present for that heart-broken friend? Perfect cake-in-a-glass-time!!
Next time you make a any cake double the batter. Use twist-off glasses with strait walls so the cake comes out easily when you turn it up side down later. Oil and flour (or use nuts or poppy seeds) the twist-off glasses and fill them with batter maximum halfway full. Bake the open glasses in the oven at 180 °C until an inserted toothpick comes out clean (depends on the size of the glass). Immediately close glasses with the lid and let cool. If the cake is too high you can cut it off to properly close the lid. When the lid has inverted a vakuum has formed and the cake is preserved. This cake is good for at least 6 months!
