alas, living in South Africa, does have its restrictions, so my son managed to locate it on EBay....
here is the result and a recipe I used.
Here is the recipe I used (attached to the cakelet tin)...It worked for me.
1 1/4 cups cake flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/2 cup milk
125g unsalted butter
1/2 cup of maple sugar(I used treacle)
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs, lightly beaten
all ingredients at room temp.
Preheat oven to 180deg C. Grease and flour the acorn cakelet pan.
Sift together the dry ingredients. Set aside.
In a small bowl wisk tog. the milk and vanilla.
Beat together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy.
Add the eggs, a little at a time.
Add the flour mixture alternating with the milk.
Spoon 1 tablsp of batter into each acornlet. Bake until the toothpick comes out clean, about 10min.
Transfer the cakelets to a wire rack in the pan and allow to cool in the pan for 15 mins before removing.
A new season in our lives.....we now have one foot in the Fair Cape's door....our older son has relocated to Cape Town.....in all honesty, I am struggling with getting my head around this!
The beginning of a beautiful new life for him....
For us, well the saying holds true....if you love someone, let him go.............
