Little House Cakes Recipe
We love to make fun desserts and the kids love when they can help out. These Little House Cakes are really simple to make and even easier to devour 🙂
- 4 egg whites, room temperature
- 1 teaspoon cream of tartar, optional
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 cup cake flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla or almond extract
- 1 Tablespoon juice (lemon, pineapple, etc)
- Powdered sugar for garnish or frosting and candies
Preheat oven to 325F and oil your little house pan. Then place the room temperature egg whites in a bowl and whip with a mixer for 4 minutes, until smooth peaks form. If you are having a hard time achieving the soft peak stage, add a teaspoon of cream of tartar and continue whipping.
Start adding the sugar gradually – about 1/4 cup every 30 seconds, until fully incorporated.
Sift the flour and baking powder into a small bowl and then add to the eggs, along with the salt, vanilla and juice. Mix well with a spatula or spoon.
Portion 1/4 cup portions of batter into your mini house molds and then bake 18-22 minutes, until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Make sure you allow your cake to cool thoroughly before frosting or sprinkling on powdered sugar. (I used a sift to ensure even coating and no clumps of powdered sugar.)
There are so many different things you can sprinkle on top of these adorable Little House Cakes. The presentation ideas are endless with these cakes. My family has so much fun make and eating this dessert we often make them throughout the year 🙂
