In this video, I share a recipe for our Eid cake for Eid al-Fitr 2017. The white chocolate ganache is delicious and the gold crunch sprinkles add a special touch to the cake.
I hope you enjoy watching 🙂
Full recipe on my blog: http://officiallyshamsa.co.uk/2017/06/28/eid-cake-recipe-baking-our-eid-cake-eid-al-fitr-2017/
Serves 16 | Preparation Time: 15 Minutes | Cooking Time: 35 minutes
250g Unsalted Butter (softened)
250g Caster Sugar
250g Self Raising Flour
4 Medium Free Range Eggs (lightly whisked)
1 teaspoon Baking Powder
300g White Chocolate (broken into chunks)
150ml Double Cream
Cake Writing Tube
Gold Crunch Cake Sprinkles (or similar)
Grease and line two round cake tins.
Preheat oven to 180C/160C Fan/350F/Gas Mark 4.
To make the cake
Add the butter and sugar to a large bowl and whisk until smooth and creamy.
Add the eggs gradually to the butter/sugar mix and whisk well until light and fluffy.
Sift the flour and baking powder into the bowl, and fold the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until the cake mix is smooth.
Split the cake mix equally between the two cake tins and spread evenly.
Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until golden brown and a skewer inserted in the centre of the cakes comes out clean.
Leave to cool
To make the white chocolate ganache topping
Melt the white chocolate chunks by placing in a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering hot water.
Add the double cream, and whisk until smooth and silky.
Remove from heat and allow to cool.
Assemble the cake
Place one cake onto a large plate/cake board (with the bottom of the cake facing upwards), and top with an even layer of the white chocolate ganache.
Place the other cake over the first cake (with the bottom of the cake facing downwards). Top with the remaining ganache, and smooth using a large palate knife. Chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.
Decorate the cake with the gold crunch sprinkles around the cake, and write ‘Eid Mubarak’ in the centre.

Salaam and hello everyone, and welcome to my channel!
My name is Shamsa, I am a 35 yr old (at the time of writing this) mum of four, happily married to my husband Aqil.
I am a Muslim YouTuber/blogger/vlogger, and my videos consist of vlogs, advice videos, lifestyle, haul and style videos.
I have a bit of a crazy sense of humour, so if you like to laugh be sure to subscribe as I am currently uploading videos daily.
I guess the thing that makes me and my family unique is that Aqil and I are an interracial couple. Aqil is from Angola and I am Pakistani. We are both Muslim (he is a revert to Islam) and the beauty of Islam is that colour or race is not an issue 🙂
