Halloween Sour Snot Bundt

Halloween Sour Snot Bundt
For yesterday's Monster Mash cake club event, I tried a couple of different cakes but settled on one that tasted great, but looked utterly gruesome! This method can make even a plain cake look devilishly daring and has children shrieking at the sight of it! It's is a sour snot cake because of a sloppy secret ingredient... lemon curd.

Ingredients:
    Halloween Sour Snot Bundt
  • 225g butter
  • 450g golden caster sugar
  • 4 medium eggs
  • 350g plain flour
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 200ml thick vanilla yogurt (not the low fat type)
  • 50ml lemon or lime curd
  • 1 tsp lemon extract
  • Green food colouring 

Method:
  1. Grease and flour a regular sized bundt tin (2.4l, 10 cup, 10 inch). 
  2. Soften the butter and then cream in the sugar in stages.
  3. Add the eggs one at a time on a slow setting.
  4. Add all the remaining dry ingredients to a large bowl.
  5. Measure the yogurt, curd and extract in a jug. Give it a quick mix.
  6. Sift in 1/3 of the dry ingredients with a good pea sized amount of green food gel (or a good glug of the liquid stuff...), followed by 1/2 of the liquid. Repeat until all the flour and liquid is used up. Fold it in gently...
  7. Give the whole thing a quick mix for about 10 seconds or until well combined.
  8. Spoon the mix into the prepared tin.
  9. Bake at gas 3/160 C for about an hour and 15 minutes. 
  10. It should be shrinking from the sides and a skewer should come out clean.
I decorated mine with a simple glace icing dyed green and tipped over the entire cake. This can of course be made in any colour too...
