White Chocolate and Strawberry Cream Cake
I’ve had a birthday recently, yes another one, they definitely come round quicker every year. Quite often I end up with a bought cake from M&S but as I was on holiday at home, I decided to make my own cake.
I chose this White Chocolate and Strawberry Cream Cake from the Great British Bake Off book from 2011, the recipe is widely available on the web so I’ve linked to one which is a reliable source.
The cake was relatively easy to make although it did stick to my tins a little bit, so make sure you grease them very well or use cake release spray. I probably slightly overbaked my sponges too as they seemed to still be wobbly in the middle. However, it didn’t affect the taste or moistness of the sponge they are just a little darker than I would have liked. Putting the cake together is ‘a piece of cake’ and the ‘value’ strawberries I used were ideal, being smaller but packed with flavour rather than water.
As most of you know I like to enter cooking/baking challenges and was rather perplexed because this didn’t fit any of them. Then I remembered Bookmarked Recipes run by Jacqueline from Tinned Tomatoes and founded by Ruth from Ruth’s Kitchen Experiments.
I’m hoping that I can just sneak in as this is the last Saturday of the month and the round up is due.
