Wrights Madeira Cake Mix
Sometimes I just like a bit of plain cake, no cream or chocolate just a tasty bit of Madeira will do the trick. The price of Madeira cake has rocketed lately so we were pleased to find a packet mix from Wright's at a very modest 78p. We were pleased because we use Wright's bread mixes with excellent results so we knew that the quality would not be a problem.
The packaging is perhaps the only thing about this product that could possibly be reasonably criticised, and even this isn't really that bad, perhaps a bit ordinary compared to the finished product. The 500g pack really just looks like a fancy packet of flour until you open it to start the baking process. You get a lovely whiff of Madeira cake, even before it's started cooking.
It is designed to be used with bread makers so its just a case of following some pretty basic instructions and chucking it in the bread maker which will finish the task for you. As with bread making it is the smells that are created during the baking that really get the juices flowing. Madeira cake has a terrific smell when cold, but when hot and cooking it fills the house with a sense of excitement as you wait to taste what smells like a complete dream.
1 and half hours of this delicious aroma wafting through from the kitchen had me almost salivated out. I kept having a look inside the bread maker and for the first hour barely saw any reference to any baking going on. As baking neared the half way point the mix did start to rise and it looked nice and yellow, as Madeira should. On waiting for it to cool my patience was at its wits end. It was however all worth the wait. A nice soft springy Madeira cake with a soft yellow colour. The outer edge was a bit dark I thought but it tasted as good as the rest. I'm not exactly certain what the flavour is in Madeira cake, but it seemed kind of vanilla to me, funny never actually thought about the flavour until now, just know I like it a lot and am not particularly fussed what the flavour is. The cake is sweet but not overly so, pretty much a perfect accompaniment to a mid afternoon cuppa.
Excellent value for money if you are prepared to wait the baking time. I think the cake is delicious and the money saved from buying the overpriced shop one's could quite easily see you purchase another two packets of Wrights. So that 3 cakes for the price of one......................thats just gotta be a good deal.
Summary: A lovely cake
