Robert Pattinson fans probably already know what their heart desires. After all, the handsome British actor has become quite the celebrity since his acting debut in The Libertine back in 1999. He has since starred in several box office hits, and even managed to snag an Academy Award nomination for Best Actor in a Leading Role for his brilliant portrayal of Charles Dickens in the 2005 movie A Knight’s Tale.

But what can an aspiring baker do when they want to make an outstanding sweet treat for their beloved Agatha? After all, she’s the strong, independent, Victorian housewife who lives in the countryside and is head over heels in love with Charles Dickens. Well, one thing you can do is bake him a delicious cake, of course.

The Internet is filled with many delicious recipes for Pattinson cakes. While some are quite easy to make, others may require a little more effort. So, if you’re looking to impress your friends with a home-baked delicacy, then this article is for you. We’ll walk you step by step through the process of baking a wonderful cake that will have your fans dreaming of walking down the aisle once more.

The Ingredients

The ingredients you’ll need for this recipe are all things sweet. That means lots of sugar and flour. You’ll also need a cooking spray or a butter wrapper to give the cake a crisp, brown exterior. These are often found in the kitchenware section of your local grocery store.

To make the cake really special, you’ll need to source some good quality chocolate. If you have an all-purpose flour, then this is the item you should utilize. Avoid using regular flour, as this will affect the texture of the cake. Semi-sweet chocolate will give it a smooth, creamy texture that his fans will go crazy over.

Baking is all about applying heat, so you’ll need to provide your cake with enough time to heat through. Another important factor is temperature. You don’t want to under or over heat your cake, as this could leave you with a dry, gritty mouthfeel. Not cool, at all.

The Method

Now that you have all your ingredients and equipment ready, it’s time to put it to use. Begin by mixing the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. While doing this, you may notice the mixture changing color. This is a good thing, as the darker the mixture is, the more intense the taste will be. Mix on low until the mixture is a uniform pale yellow.

Next, add the eggs and vanilla, mixing well after each addition. If you’re using a hand mixer, then this portion is pretty easy. Otherwise, you may need to do it by hand, which can be a little more strenuous. When each egg is incorporated, your mixture will become very thick and almost impossible to stir with a spoon. Continue mixing for about 10 minutes, until the texture is light and airy. You’re aiming for a silky texture, similar to butter, here.

After the eggs are almost fully incorporated, it’s time to add your flour mixture. Begin by gradually adding the flour and baking soda, then mix until a smooth dough forms. Don’t worry if the dough is a little lumpy, as this will disappear when baked. Gently fold in your chocolate bits, then spoon the dough into your prepared cake pan. Using a spatula, smooth the top of the cake, making sure it’s level and even across the surface. Take care not to mix any bubbles that may have formed during mixing on the surface. This will affect the texture and taste of your cake when cooked.

Pro-Tip

If you have extra cake batter, then why not try making some cookies? You could form little balls, or use a cookie dough bag to make a variety of delicious treats. If you want to impress your friends with some delicious homemade bites, then you should try making some sausages. Using a pastry brush, brush some flour onto a hot, clean surface before rolling the dough into long, thin sausages. These are excellent served alongside some fried potatoes or steamed broccoli.

There, now you have an idea of what you can bake for your adoring fans. Make sure to write down your recipe and share it with your friends. This way, they’ll know how to make the perfect gift for their favorite author.
