Sunbeam Baking Sunday – Chocolate Velvet Cake

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.

  1. 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 🙂

      Baking is a lovely weekend meditation, and the eating isn’t bad either.
