picnic weather


ahhh the season of the picnic is here, a trip to Giffords Circus provided the ideal opportunity to try out a new recipe for...

Treacle & Spice sponge

Put 225g unsalted butter (diced), 225g dark muscovado sugar and 225 self-raising flour in the bowl of a processor with 2 tsp of baking powder, 1 tsp ground ginger, 1 tsp ground cinnamon, 4 medium eggs and 100ml milk. Cream together then transfer to a buttered 20cm cake tin. Bake at 180oC (160oC fan oven) gas mark 4 for 50-55 minutes. For the icing, blend 150g sifted icing sugar with 1 1/2 - 2 1/2 tbsp sieved orange juice... we decorated with silver balls!

yum, yum...
