It only occurred to me as I was actually baking the Coffee and Walnut Cake that this was my first time making a cake by myself! Of course I’d been a helping hand whilst my mother made cupcakes (but that probably just meant sprinkling hundreds and thousands all over the kitchen work top). So, I was just happy it turned out edible!
I had planned on going to the gym on Saturday morning, but somehow ended up making a cake – total polar opposites; although my family were happy with the choice I made!! Thank god it’s autumn and I can hide under jumpers again.
I followed a Waitrose recipe and was so happy with how simple and tasty it turned out; beats any shop-bought version!
Sorry for all the explanation marks there – the sugar rush after this cake made me excited…
