This is my third attempt this week at making these little cakelets. The pan is from Williams-Sonoma a few years ago and is one of my favourites. The first two batches didn’t want to come out of the pan and only 4 out of the 12 cakes survived. I tried again today and they worked! The trick was giving in and buying Pam for baking (the stuff that has flour in it) because of all the small details. The recipe is for a spice cake and is delicious. The recipe is at the bottom of the post.
Williams-Sonoma Snowy Village Cakelet Pan
(The recipe came on the package)
1 1/4 Cups of flour
1 teaspoon of baking soda
1 1/4 teaspoons of cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon of nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon of salt
2/3 cup of sugar
3/4 cup of milk
1 egg slightly beaten
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla
8 tablespoons (one stick) of unsalted butter melted and cooled slightly
Bake at 350 for 30 minutes. (In our oven, 20 minutes was sufficient so check your cakes often.)
If you don’t have a cakelet pan like this one, the recipe would be great as a small round or 8×8 pan. A little powdered sugar sprinkled on top is enough to sweeten it. Enjoy!
