An excuse for cake


It’s National Baking Week! Once I’d established that it was neither a figment of my early morning imagination, nor something that Chris Evans invented, this was clearly something that I was going to embrace wholeheartedly.

Although, if you read the recipes on the website, I’m not entirely sure what the organisers’ definition of baking comprises; possibly just turning the oven on at some point in the cooking process. Soup? Pasta? – all baking apparently.

Nonetheless, what more excuse do I need for a cake.

This isn’t from the baking website, it’s my new favourite book, the Great British Bake Off Recipe book, Apple and Maple traybake.

It’s delicious, all damp and appley, with a maple syrup and cream cheese icing.

As you see, it’s not going to last long.
