Good morning bakers!
If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know that I recently WON a brand spanking new Sunbeam Mixmaster. Apparently it can mix planets, but I haven’t been able to find my slices of Jupiter in the back of the pantry.
Ta-daaaah, my lovely prize and my winning pun!
So after a few teething problems (which I’ve diagnosed as Nervous Operator Syndrome), I have baked my first cake using a mixmaster.
I chose Chocolate Velvet Cake, because – chocolate.
The recipe isn’t mine, so I won’t anger the gods of copyright by reproducing it, but the internet being what it is, a quick Google of Chocolate Velvet Cake and you’ll be ready to make your own version, in plenty of time for afternoon tea today!
What is your go-to cake?
Do you have a mixmaster?
How do you fit planets in the bowl?
I love seeing what you’ve been up to in your kitchens, so if you’re on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook, snap a shot of your cake, slice, tower of choux pastry, savoury muffins or pies and tag it #sundaybakingsunday. It’s great to see what other people are up to, don’t you think?
Until next Sunday, or the urge strikes again, I wish you happy baking, and a second slice of chocolate cake!
Go on, you know you want to.

Annette…I’m seriously considering trying to figure out a way to steal your Mixmaster. Hope you don’t mind. Kthxbai.
But seriously, what a gorgeous piece of machinery! And your cake looks scrumptious! Baking always makes me think of sitting down with a nice cup of tea, a good book, and a slice of cake on a chilly Sunday afternoon – heaven.
Can’t wait to see what else you bake 🙂
Hey Jacquie, you can take my cocoa but you’ll have to pry Minxy from my cold, floury hands!
Baking is a lovely weekend meditation, and the eating isn’t bad either.
oh god YUM! x
(ps you know that is going to be much better with tea than coffee, right?)
Ha! It was delicious with coffee – full strength and decaf.
Oh I would love a mixmaster. You lucky thing. Your luck had to change, hun. That cake looks amazing. I hope you it accompanied coffee (sorry Kate). xx
It was a pretty sweet surprise!! Coffee for the win.
Wow! You won it! It picked you I’m sure:) That cake looks amazingly tasty. Glad you finally worked out how to use the beast. Happy Cooking
