The bodgeness spreads now to cakeness.
In trying to support a charity NCT nearly-new-sale I did really well at making some cakes. These are my current usual ‘loaf style’ things like coconut or granny-tea-loaf (v nice).
Dear wife suggested a lemon drizzle sponge cake (round type) which would have been my 2nd ever cake of this style (previous one was okish with the help of the 10yr old d daughter). As photos below testify, all did not go to plan especially with the proportions hopefully visable with the fork in place. Apparently my inability to notice pencil amendments to the quantities in the recipie book, caused I might add by doing this at 11pm the night before, meant that my cake in tin an inch too wide in diameter didn’t rise to the job.
Quick nigeybodge meant that cutting it in two, and making it a double layer cake with lemon curd inside instead rescued the situation. To console myself further I made two more stonking banana, walnut & date loafs!!!
