Easter Cake Bake
A Slice of Cherry Pie is hosting the Easter cake bake and I’ve decided to enter our Easter bunny cake. It’s a must on our table at Easter since I own this tin, but this year it comes in two colours.

Preheat oven. Grease and flour the bunny tin (volume: 1 litre).

Cream together butter, sugar and salt until light and fluffy. Add rum flavouring and then gradually beat in the eggs. Mix together flour and baking powder and sift. Fold into the mixture, a little at a time alternating with orange juice or milk. Divide cake mixture into halves and pour the white cake mixture into the bunny tin.

Stir the other half together with the ingredients for the dark cake mixture. Pour over the pale mixture into the tin. Bake in the lower third of the oven.
