Another instalment in the Use Your Loaf recipe collection. Celebrating all that is good and versatile about the beloved Loaf Tin. This is one of my nicest bakes – I am so pleased every time it turns out. Particularly, as peaches sometimes have a tendency to make a cake a little soggy. The secret of this one is to keep cooking on 170C for longer than you think it needs. The temperature isn’t high enough to make it turn too dark – I particularly like the summery colour of this cake.
I used tinned peaches in this particular bake but fresh peaches work equally well. The honest truth is, that I’m still not feeling 100% so didn’t haven’t the energy to go shopping for fresh.
Wonderful to see so many regular people taking part in last week’s Bake of the Week: Passion Fruit Poke Cupcakes definitely got people talking!
I met the lovely Eileen from ET Speaks From Home this week and can confirm that she is just as fab in real life as my friend in the computer! She has provided some delicious Scones this week.
I love the thought of making my own pitta breads – Eileen also shared her post on when she made hers. She makes it look sooo easy!
Another friend, Claire shared with us these divine Rose & Raspberry Brownies – How luxurious do they look?
There was more brownie love in the form of Chocolate Hot Cross Bun Brownies – a genius combination from Mummy Mishaps
There was more luxury in the form of a Malteaser Chocolate Malt Cake from Hijacked By Twins. This looks so rich!
And an incredible Eggless Chocolate Cake that cost only 90 pence from Searching for Spice – Not that’s economical!
I’m a sucker for anything rainbow and completely love these rainbow cupcakes from Mummy Makes Cakes – Both sponge and frosting!
I really love the pattern that the oranges make in Madhouse Family Reviews Orange, Polenta & Olive Oil Cake – I feel an upside down cake coming to the Costello house very soon!
