Cake Baking

I bought a copy of Mary Berry’s Baking Bible at the weekend and today I made the almond and chocolate chip cake.  It was incredibly easy to make, as all the ingredients are put in one bowl and mixed together, and it’s lovely.  Maybe a bit too lovely as I’m craving a second slice.

Learning to make new desserts is one of the objectives on my 101 list, but I can’t make too many cakes as that would be a disaster for my diet.  I also want my cakes to have less fat than the one I just made so the next time I make it I’m going to replace the butter with mashed bananas.

    I’ve been trying to bake myself recently, unfortunately without too much success yet. Haven’t found any recipes I particularly like.

    Going to try scones next though my main problem is the recipes’ are always for 12 or more and I’d never eat them – though I suppose the guys in work won’t mind!

    Come visit and we can bake together – I have quite a few recipes that I like.

    I usually begin by halfing all the quantities as I rarely need to make a 20cm round cake or 12 scones. Can be a bit tricky though if you are using eggs as they don’t exactly half easily.

    I have quite a few books but the this is the one I like best, I’ve liked everything I’ve made from that book.
