Last weekend I baked a cake. What's so special about that? Well, I don't do cakes. I bake bread regularly, and despite the absence of blog posts I have been baking sourdough each weekend over the summer from a limited repertoire of white, spelt, granary and Dan Lepard's 60-40 Mill loaf. But last weekend I spied this recipe in the Guardian and was tempted to give it a go. Sue is the baking queen in our household - she was surprised that I had so little experience of baking cakes. It's true, I can recalled making a vegan celebration cake - a rich fruit cake that was surprisingly good and a worthy carrot cake, but that's it.
So Sunday, alongside two granary sourdoughs, and under strict supervision from Sue, I baked this raspberry almond streusel cake and it was gorgeous!
