Yule Log: A traditional French bûche de Noël always looks just the right side of cutely enchanting, and there is nothing hard to like about its tender, melting chocolatiness. But I warm to it most of all for the rich pagan symbolism: it is no less than a cake-emulation of the log that the Norsemen would drag home through the streets to burn in celebration of the winter solstice and to honour the gods and hope, thus, to cajole from them a good year to come.
| Hey Everyone! And Happy MondayD! That’s a thing, right?! Happy Mondays? Okay, so this is gonna be one quick Monday post. And it really is all about this Cinnamon Rum Spiced Cake. Perfect for the season. Now the reason this is gonna be the quickest post ever is because I’ve just worked a 14...
Frosted courgette (zuccini) & lemon cake... This is AMAZING and you cannot taste the courgettes... I even fooled a work colleague who hates all veg into loving this.. The courgettes make the cake very moist
Nigella's coffee and walnut layer cake. Rose like a dream and stayed moist for days. I actually used the cake recipe to make about a dozen cappuccino cupcakes- just topped them with white chocolate frosting (lovely recipe pinned on my board) and sprinkled them with dark drinking chocolate. Heaven!
