Years ago I tried to make hot cross buns and they were really awful. As a result I’ve never been game to try them again. Maybe if I’d found this recipe with it’s helpful hints on using yeast I might have given them another go. I hope you have more success……..

EASY CHOCOLATE CAKE
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!!!!
POPPY SEED HAZELNUT CAKE
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.
BUTTERY CHRISTMAS STOLLEN
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.
BLACKBERRY JAM CAKE
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.
CHOCOLATE RIPPLE CAKE
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…………………
FLOURLESS WHOLE-ORANGE DESSERT CAKE
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.
