Following the crab.Chris's favourite cake is a kitch 'black forest gateaux'but I know what I am like. I have no will power so having a whole cake in the house would have totally scuppered all my good intentions! Then I found this recipe on line.
Mini black forest gateaux!
The recipe did call for fresh cherries, but there were none to be had at my local co-op, so it had to be a cherry filling thing, which wasnt bad but think they would be gorgious with fresh fruit, oh and the sponge is soaked in kirsh!
Think my baking confidence is definately growing, am going to try 'orange and polenta cake' next. Will let you know how it goes.
