After an absense due to illness & holidays this post is just a little catch up on baking of the past few weeks. As I’m currently between making two large cake orders I only have time to post pictures so apologies for no recipes at this time.
Chocolate Chip Shortbread – These didn’t have the snap and melt in your mouth feel that I like from shortbread but they were still tasty and were delicious with a cup of tea. Their mini size (about 1 and 1/2″) means you can indulge in more than one!
This Marble cake usually has orange mixed through but as I had none to hand I kept it plain and notched up the vanilla to give it a nice contrast. It was a little dry so I think I’ll have to add a little more liquid next time to give it the moist texture you need with a cake that is being eaten plain.
These little rock cake style muffins are a strange hybrid but had a nice firm crust with soft dense cake laced with choc chips on the inside. As with many new recipes I might not be happy with, these went down very well with my taste testers, proving that taste is the number one priority.
