We discovered these great mini silicone cake pans and I love them. At 5″ in diameter, they make the perfect size cake for two to four people without too much left over. The best thing is that we have three of them. So, depending on my mood and the occasion, the creation can increase in height.
Here is a great one layer cake that I made recently that provided a perfect ending for a dinner for three, with a slice or two left for the next day, but barely. Orange and poppy seeds play really well together in this light (at least in terms of texture) cake. However, this cake’s best feature is definitely the fact that it is soaked in orangey syrupy deliciousness. Moist, light and definitely worth the effort. This is one that you will make again and again.
The recipe that I have included is for one 8 inch cake. I halved the recipe, used the 5″ cake pan and reduced the cooking time to 45 minutes. Enjoy!
