baked this cake for father's day. This was my daughter Ishani's choice. She wanted me to bake only rainbow cake for dad. Need not to say that she is a huge fan of rainbow.
All purpose Flour - 1 1/2 cup
Baking Soda - 1 tsp
Baking Powder - 1 tsp
Melted butter - 1/2 cup
Condensed milk - 400 gm tin
Fanta 0r Orangeade - 1/2 cup
Orange essence - 1 tsp
In a big mixing bowl sieve together
All purpose flour
In another mixing bowl beat together
Add Sieved mixture to the butter and condensed milk mixture. Mix well. To this mixture add orange drink by cutting and folding.
Divide the mixture into 7 equal portions. Add one food colours into each. I've added red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple and pink. Preheat the oven at 400 F. Grease the cake pan. I've used 8" round pan.
Now comes the assemble of the cake. Pour a heaped tablespoon of one colour in the center of the pan and allow it to spread a little. Pour another colour batter in the center now and wait for a minute to spread. Keep doing it until all the batter is used.
Use toothpick to make a design . Put it in the oven for around 40 mins. Insert a toothpick in the center and if it comes out clean the cake is done.
I covered this cake with chocolate Ganache.
To make Chocolate Ganache
8 ounces semisweet or bittersweet chocolate - chopped into pieces
3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
Place the chopped chocolate in a big steel or glasss bowl. Heat heavy cream on medium high until it comes to a boil. Remove from heat and immediately pour cream over chocolate and stir until completely mixed and glossy. Allow the ganache to cool before pouring on the cake. The longer you allow the ganache to cool, the thicker it will set.
The kids tried to lick it. You can see it in this picture.
