Edit: It turned out well, although not well enough to bother with again when there are so many wonderful cake recipes out there. What was really nice was the ginger and lemon icing!
Thomas and I are now living in Auckland. We have a new kitchen which is small but well set up.
I’m not sure why I decided to experiment with the first cake I’ve made in the new oven, especially as it’s Thomas’s birthday cake.
Here’s what I’ve done:
I took the standard banana cake recipe, removed bananas and added mashed canned pears, ginger, mixed spice and golden syrup. Well, there is a chance it will work right? : – )
Failure or success, place your bets ladies and gentlemen. I’ll report back later either way.
The good news is that I’m home all day today so I can make a back up cake as well.
