Another Winner

I have just tried another recipe from the excellent Cakes – regional and traditional by Julie Duff.

Berkeley Buns, a rich concoction of ginger and cherries with a hint of spice – they are really, really good.

My tip when choosing a recipe is to note the flour butter/fat ratio – in this case the butter is 50% of the flour – the same in a Victoria sandwich so I realized they would be rich and would keep better than say a rock cake or raspberry bun. Not that they will last long – Harry and I have already eaten 2.

    Looks good. I bought this book after you mentioned it previously and am just trying to decide what to try out first. Alison
