Cakes

For such a long time I could only make a loaf cake. They are super simple, and always worked out. But, practice makes perfect, and I can now manage a round one too! Which is great, because I adore cake. Fortunately, I also quite like going to the gym

A Fantastically sweet and moist cake with gorgeous chunks of rhubarb, sweet bursts of custard and a crunchy crumble topping. I love rhubarb. As long as it’s surrounded by sweetness. I couldn’t eat it on its own, but cover it in sugar and I’m there.…

Red Velvet Cake

Red Velvet Cake

I remember always being impressed by how a Red Velvet Cake looked. Having tried to make pink cupcakes with the kids, and always ending up with a faintly brown, I was incredibly impressed by the colour. But, for a long time, I’d never eaten one.…

Easy Apple Upside Down Cake

I love an upside down cake. I love fruity puddings generally, but an upside down cake is brilliant. You can really taste the fruit, it keeps its juiciness and flavour, the cake is almost an accompaniment to the wonderful cooked fruit. Apple Upside Down Cake…

I really massively need to branch out a little bit and start making circle cakes. The sponge bit must be similar, and there are all sorts of fantastic filling options. But, loaf cakes are just so simple. They cook really well, you can add almost…

Earl Grey Fruit Loaf 

Earl Grey Fruit Loaf 

I’m calling this an Earl Grey Fruit Loaf because it’s got Earl Grey and fruit in it, and its loaf shaped. There’s also no butter or fat, so it doesn’t seem to be a cake as such. You could call it a tea cake though…

Chocolate and Bailey’s Loaf Cake with Buttercream

Chocolate and Bailey’s Loaf Cake with Buttercream

Bailey’s Loaf Cake sounds good, but it’s not Bailey’s. It’s the Aldi Version which is like £3 and tastes exactly the same. It’s what I use in all of my Bailey’s bakes. It’s just good sense! As a side note, Aldi gin is also incredible!…

Easy Blueberry and Lemon Loaf Cake

Easy Blueberry and Lemon Loaf Cake

So, I still can’t really do cake. I always say this, and then my cakes always turn out quite well, so I’m starting to look like one of those people that says they’re bad at something and then is actually good and just looking for…
