Bake of the week
We've not yet had a Bake of the Week post, so I'll make up for it by showing you a picture of the carrot, banana, walnut and raisin cake that I made for a member of staff who is leaving at the end of the month (Julie-Ann is her name, hence the initials in walnuts on the top). As I'm off on my holidays as of now (*does a little excited dance*), we had a little tea-party this afternoon to say farewell. It's this recipe from Waitrose, only I substituted half of the walnuts with raisins, and just did a straightforward butter icing (although I utilised Stuck-in-the-book's tip of adding a little water to the butter icing which made it spreadable for once!)
Next week is of course Persephone Reading Week, but blog-service may be somewhat sporadic after that until we get firmly into September...
