Mini clover sandwich cakes!
Updated: Apr 13
Today I'm sharing another super green St Patrick's Day recipe: 2 mini clover sandwich cakes filled with Nutella and honey cereal crumbles!
My favourite color is green so I'm pretty sure you will see a lot of green stuff in this blog; here is the first one of them.
I had so much fun baking these treats and I took a few pictures during the process so you can definitely follow along easily.
42g soft butter *
63g self-rising flour
17g potato starch *
67g granulated sugar
67g milk *
1 large egg white
green food colouring
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Honey cereal crumbles
Preheat oven to 320°F (160°C) and cover a 18cm spring form tin with parchment paper.
In a small bowl whisk together the dry ingredients (flour and potato starch) until combined.
In a bigger bowl beat butter and sugar together with an electric mixer until creamy. Pour the egg white and keep beating.
Add, alternately, milk and flour mixture continuing to mix until combined.
Add a few drops of green food colouring and stir with a rubber spatula.
Pour the batter into the prepared tin and bake for about 20 minutes.
Let it cool completely before removing from the pan.
Cut out the cloves using the cookie cutter and then slice them lengthways with a sharp knife (be patient because the cake is very soft and crumbly!).
Spread Nutella on one side (or both sides? I think you can decide how much Nutella you want in your sandwich ;) ), sprinkle with honey flavoured cereal crumbles and cover with the other slice of cake.
You can use any kind of starch you have on hand (potato, corn, wheat..)
I haven't tried but I think you can also use any kind of milk and butter you have on hand in this recipe.
If you make it let me know! :)
