PRIMITIVE PANTRY CAKES
I have been asked how I make my pantry cake so I decided to provide you all with the recipe.
You will need some molds for the cakes.
4-tbs used coffee grounds - try to use dried grounds
3-4 tbs cinnamon
2-3 tbs ground cloves
2-3 tbs ground nutmeg
1 cup water or brewed coffee - you may have to play with this amount - whether it‘s too runny or too thick
Mix dough just until combined
Spray your molds using a cooking spray, coat molds with cinnamon, clove & nutmeg mixture
Press the dough into the molds to make them even and smooth on the tops
I’m not sure just how many this will make because of the different size molds used for them, so the amount varies anywhere
between 4-6 depending on the molds.
Bake at 180 degrees for approx. 6-7 hours depending.
Keep checking on them and make sure they are not sticking tightly in the molds - pop cake from mold and lightly spray again and you might want to rub a bit more spices on at this time as well.
When baking time is done turn off oven and let them cure about an hour or more in cooling down oven.
Let cool completely after removing pan from oven. Remove the cake from the pan and rub ground cinnamon,cloves& nutmeg(or any spice you desire)all over the cake. By rubbing on the spices you eliminate the risk of mold developing and it makes them smell yummy.
If you want to ice them, then make an icing by mixing equal amounts of white craft paint and white glue together with a few drops of water to thin to the desired consistency and drizzled it over the top allowing it to run down the sides of the cake.
Use them under a shoo-fly screen
