Plum Jam & Cream Sponge Cake

Plum Jam & Cream Sponge Cake Recipe

This is actually a fatless sponge, made with just eggs, sugar and flour. Obviously I made up for the lack of butter in the sponge with a huge dollop of whipped cream in the centre along with some delicious homemade plum jam.

Sunday Baking: Cherry & Almond Cake Recipe

Today marks the start of British Summertime. And suddenly everyone* on my twitter feed is complaining about the weather. Spring (not summer!) has only just begun so the weather will be variable. Today we have had grey skies, sunshine, strong winds, rain and hail. And I love it. (Incidentally so do the ducklings. I popped […] Read more…
