The inaugural meeting of the Skipton & Yorkshire Dales Clandestine Cake Club and my first attempt at baking a proper cake! Whilst I can cook and even bake a bit of flapjack I have never attempted an actual proper cake! so for the first ever Yorkshire Dales Clandestine Cake Club and inspired by Lynn Hill I thought I should make the effort and give it a go….
I made a classic Victoria Sponge with our own free range eggs, home-made raspberry jam and baked it in an Aga that just doesn’t want to get hot these days… The jam ran out a bit & the lid of the tin rubbed a little of the icing sugar off but it tasted OK!
Other fab cakes on display included, Chocolate & Lime, Lemon & Ginger, Chocolate Marsala, Hummingbird and Chocolate Orange all delicious….
