I have made this cake several times over the years .. this was the go to cake recipe if I was required to make something for school events .. and it never failed to be nothing other than pretty gorgeous … kids, teachers & parents all enjoyed it .. which if I’m honest is always a huge relief!
So I thought I would revisit this most easiest of recipes … and obviously have a good faff and style before the kids got the heads up that I’d made it.
Like I said its super easy, and it can if you’d rather, be changed to chocolate orange cake by adding marmalade instead of raspberry jam .. its a Nigella recipe .. which lets face it are always just perfect.
I used to have her (and must get again) Domestic Goddess book which if full of wonderful cake recipes .. should you be in the market for a lovely cake recipe .. I am always on look out or very happy to receive suggestions for new cookbooks .. be they for cakes & sweet treats or gorgeously scrumptious meals for my gang.
I would love to know if you make this cake .. and what you think of it .. so here’s to another baking success and happy teens.
