I have fond, if now somewhat faded, memories of enjoying Sunday tea on the lawn during the summer when I was a young child. There would have been sandwiches, tinned fruit, orange squash and of course cake. Mum was a good cook but tended to keep to pretty basic recipes so it would usually have been a jam sponge with icing on top.
Nowadays the only home baked caked that I regularly eat are those provided by Colin, the horticultural society treasurer, some Sunday mornings when the trading shed is open. He does us proud with his almond and cherry, coconut, date and walnut and gingerbread cakes. Occasionally he does almond slices which always seem to disappear far too quickly.
For other gardening and cake posts have a look at VegPlotting’s post I Knew You Were Coming So I Baked a Cake.
Have a good week, and don’t eat too much cake!
