Here’s another chocolate cake to add to your collection. The Women’s Weekly have added the label “Family Favourite”, I’m not sure that it deserves that distinction – isn’t every chocolate cake a Family Favourite!!!!
I was a bit baffled when I read this recipe as to what a ‘tube pan’ was. A check of google tells me that it’s what I’ve always called a ring tin. I thought that an alternative name for a ring tin was a Bundt tin and have never heard it called a tube pan, but it turns out that they’re the same thing. So to clear up the confusion I thought I’d add a photo of a tube, ring or Bundt pan.
I’ve decided not to make a traditional Christmas Cake this year and in the hunt for something different I came across this Christmas Stollen recipe. It’s not quite a cake more of a delicious yeast bread, but it will make a nice change.
I can’t decide if this is a cake or a dessert. Maybe it can be either. I haven’t made it yet, but from the picture and the list of ingredients, it looks really good so I think I’ll be giving it a go.
The name Chocolate Ripple Cake always conjures up the 1960s dessert of chocolate ripple biscuits sandwiched together with cream to my and others of my generations minds. But this recipe is actual a cake. A cake with a white chocolate filling and dark chocolate icing. Absolutely not for the diet conscious…………………
Sadly although it flourless this dessert cake isn’t gluten free, but for those who tolerate gluten and love oranges, it’s a great dessert, especially with a spoonful of thick cream.
This Zucchini Loaf is easy to make and if you’re one of those parents home schooling your kids during this Covid19 crisis it could be a good project to give the them as part of their maths work. The added bonus is that you get something good to eat when it’s cooked. I admire you all, parents and kids, it’s a difficult and challenging time and you’re doing a great job. Stay well everyone………………
