I have just sat down after a gruelling morning doing my weekly shop …..online - and making a cake.
Today’s offering comes from an old book – Delia’s Book of Cakes.
I like this book for a number of reasons, the ingredients are in imperial and it has no pretensions, it was written in those long off days when a book of cakes was about – cakes and not a lifestyle manual with a few recipes thrown in.
Whatever your thoughts about her last series on TV, How to Cheat, I find her recipes work and I respect her not cashing in like others I could mention endorsing products for nothing more than monetary gain.
I am digressing slightly so here it is Crusty Current Cake; easy, fun and the best bit, delicious!
Tray greased and lined ready for all the goodies
'Crust' goes in next - sugar, currents and hazelnuts.
Sponge now - made with plain flour
Mummy's little helping doing what he does best
The lovely crust reveals its self.
Excuse me as I indulge myself with a second cup of coffee and piece of this cake...
