Celebrating mine and my niece's birthday with some of the family this past Sunday, I wanted to make a special birthday cake. Not being a great baker I don't have cake recipes up my sleeve that I can just whip out and rely on. I tend to rely on the words of fellow bloggers or the experience I've had with various cookbooks in the past. One of the blogs I follow which I've cooked a number of her dishes and had great success with is Hannah from Honey and Jam. What a baker! What a cook! So going by my past experience with her recipes, I decided on -
Quite a firm textured cake which was quite filling so only a small slice is recommended and definitely a cake that needs a frosting of some sort. I did think the burnt butter would come through in the flavour a lot more than what it did so was slightly disappointed with that aspect, but the frosting was delicious. Finger licking delicious actually.
