The easiest cake ever

Last-minute guests? Your turn to bring the pudding to a friend’s house for dinner tonight? Don’t panic! Here’s what claims to be the easiest cake recipe in the world and that doesn’t make it any less delicious by the way.  Plus, it looks pretty impressive, don’t you think?

I made it a few weeks ago based on the recipe I found here and I can’t wait to make it again. You only need one bowl for mixing so you can save on time and dishes. I put strawberries in it but you can add any other chopped-up fruit.

1 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
zest of 1 lemon (optional, for flavour)
¾ cup sugar
2 eggs
½ cup sunflower oil
1 tsp vanilla
1 ½cup strawberries
1 tbsp brown sugar

Preheat the oven to 180º C.
In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and lemon zest.
Add in the sugar, eggs, vanilla and oil and mix to combine.
Butter and flour an 8 or 9 inch cake pan and add in the batter, which will be quite thick.
Position the strawberries fairly closely together, pressing them into the batter slightly. Sprinkle with brown sugar.
Bake for 50 minutes to 1 hr or until a cake tester inserted comes out clean.

Bon appétit!
