I like to bake every few days, especially now the hens have started laying again, to use up the eggs. I usually make up a basic sandwich cake recipe which I bake as buns, dividing it into two to cater for the different tastes of my husband and son. My son likes chocolate cake but my husband doesn't, so it's most often a tray of chocolate chip buns and a tray of sultana buns.
Anyway my main oven packed in last week and the top oven only has one shelf, so I've been making a cake instead (I have tried putting another shelf in from the bottom oven but things don't cook the same). I've been making sandwich cakes, but today I thought I would experiment by making a cake with two different sides and it turned out all right.
One half was chocolate chip (I find the packets of choc chips expensive so I buy bars of Tesco value chocolate and chop a few rows up)
The other half was sultana
and this is what the whole cake looked like
There's a bit of mingling in the middle but I'm prepared to eat that!
Marion is in her local choir, and it had me smiling from the very beginning because it was just like the choirs I'm in. Her husband is a miserable so and so and thinks the choir's a load of rubbish and reluctantly takes her to rehearsals because she's ill.
I won't tell you what happens but it's a bit of a tearjerker. There are laughs too and I really enjoyed it.
