The Grinch is an animated film featuring the famous grumbling Grinch and is about his plans to ruin Christmas when the residents of Whoville plan to make their annual holiday three times bigger that year. Meanwhile, Cindy Lou Who plans to seek out Santa Claus to thank him for helping her widowed mother every Christmas, but little does she know she is trying to blow the Grinch’s cover.
23 ml milk
1,5 large eggs
1/3 teaspoon vanilla extract
83 gr cake flour
67 gr sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
Pinch of salt
90 gr unsalted butter, softened
45 ml milk
3 large eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
187 gr cake flour
133 gr sugar
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
180 gr unsalted butter, softened
How to bake
1. Grease a loaf tin with butter or oil and preheat the oven to 350°F/175°F.
2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the milk, eggs, and vanilla until it is just combined.
3. In the bowl of an electric mixer, place the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. 4. Mix on the low speed for about 30 seconds or until everything is blended.
5. Add the butter and half of the egg mixture.
6. Mix on low speed until the dry ingredients are moistened.
7. Increase the mixer speed to medium and beat for one minute.
8. Scrape down the sides of the bowl and add the remaining egg mixture, in 2 separate additions, beating about 30 seconds after each addition to combine.
9. Add a few drops of red food colouring at a time until you get the red colour you like.
10. Scrape the batter into the prepared pan and smooth the top with an offset spatula or the back of a spoon
11. Bake for 50 to 55 minutes, or until the cake is golden brown and a thin wooden skewer or toothpick inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean.
12. Once the cake is baked, let it cool and then cut the cake into even slices.
13. In the meantime, clean the loaf tin and grease it again. Also, preheat the oven to 350°F/175°F.
13. Then, use a heart-shaped cookie cutter to cut out as many hearts as it takes to lay them face to face from one end of the pan to the other end. Make sure it is a snug fit but, leave some room at each end for the green cake mix.
14. Mix the ingredients for the green cake in the same way as you did for the red cake, but add green food colouring instead of red.
15. Pour the green batter around the heart cutouts.
16. Tap the pan on the counter so the batter will fall down the sides of the hearts.
17. Bake the cake 50 to 55 minutes, or until the cake is golden brown and a thin wooden skewer or toothpick inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean.
18. Next, frost the cake with green frosting and add some heart sprinkles. Or keep it just the way it is!
