My new favourite cake recipe!
If you make just one recipe of mine this year, make it this cake! I’m serious. I love sweet and summery flavours, but this warm, homestyle cake, literally takes the cake for me. I was worried that the flavours would be a little old fashioned for the girls as well. But they ate it for dessert two nights in a row, and now I’ve frozen the leftovers for when my sister comes to town later in the month. I just love this cake that much!
I’m sure there will be some people thinking I should have dressed this cake up a little more. Done some fancy piping; made it look all modern and hip. But honestly, sometimes I just want a slice of granny cake. You know, cakes that look like they were made to eat, not to photograph. So I made it simply about the flavour, no fuss. And I truly think it made me like this cake even more.
