Mini Vanilla & Black Currant Cake

Life is becoming so busy obviously this keeps me super busy, however i couldnt give up blogging for any other reasons. Yes blogging is one of my passion, am running this year's bakethon again as i love baking very much. Baking is definitely a stress burster, its completely therapeutic if you are running like headless chicken with your daily routine. Baking, this word itself makes me happy. And this year's Bake-a-thon is going to be some delightful bakes. I will be posting three baked goodies per week, obviously dont forget to visit my space on mondays, wednesdays and fridays. For the first day of this year's bake-a-thon, am posting some super spongy black currants loaded vanilla mini cake. Very simple to make, you can bake this ultimate cakes for your evening snacks or for after a meal desserts with less efforts.

Mini Vanilla Currant Cake

Recently, i picked a packet of dried black currants from the supermarket to bake some quick breads with it. But i couldnt resist to add them while preparing a simple vanilla cake, adding those dried black currants turned this cake more catchy with an interesting crumb while having this cake. Served along with a cup tea or coffee, one can enjoy thoroughly this super soft cake without any fuss. Seriously i felt that adding black currants to this cake turned this cake more pleasing and those black bites gives a cute look to this simple cake.
