  • self-raising flour

  • Weigh your eggs as this will determine the weight of the other ingredients.
  • Weigh out butter to the equivalent weight as the eggs and place in food processor. Repeat this with the sugar. Cream these in the processor, scraping mixture off the side intermittently to ensure all used. Add the eggs and continue to process.
  • Whilst the processor is still going, add approximately 25g oats, followed by about 1 tbspn golden syrup or light corn syrup.
  • Weigh out the flour, to 25g LESS than the eggs' original weight (you have substituted the oats for this). Add this as the processsor continues to whizz!
  • Finish off folding in by hand to ensure fully mixed.
  • Additional Information

    You can just work this as: 100g butter; 100g sugar; 25g oats; 75g SR flour; 1 tbspn golden syrup; and 2 eggs. I just find that by weighing the eggs, the proportions in any cake are spot on...
