Well the year has whizzed by once again and arrived back at the annual bake off. I am still not convinced that the birthday person should provide the treats. Ho hum! Reading and maths assessments marked for the evening left me a little time to craft these bad boys. Bon apetit tout le monde (I may have a sliver too).
Same old Vicky sponge with cream and fruit followed by Granny’s chocolate fudge cake.
Another year has zipped by and the staff room tradition pervades. I dutifully created these two offerings so that my work colleagues could celebrate with me. The first is my Grandma Sybil’s chocolate cake recipe in a bundt tin with added orange zest and a few dark chocolate chips.Victoria sponge topped and filled with whipped cream (jam in the middle) and adorned with fresh fruit. Well it was my birthday after all. Both were deliciously moist as I watched the baking time closely and went close to under just to make sure. Nom Nom!
