  • My favourite lemon cake recipe is a Nigel Slater one that has ground almonds in it. It's impossible to get wrong and so, so good. Look it up. I've also got an amazing banana cake recipe which is the best cake I have ever eaten, it tastes a bit more like carrot cake than banana though. I'll dig out the recipe tonight if anyone is interested?
  • Oh yeah I would love it, I really want to get into making cakes and at least give them ago image

  • I had to give up making cakes so often because I was getting a little chubby hehe. Im on a strict diet at the mo but once Ive reached my target Ill make a cake as a reward. And think I will definatly make cakes and bread again when im pg, i have a really cute pastel coloured with hearts apron I can just imagine myself in that with a big bump! oh its not fair, felicity also has a little apron its pink and says 'mummy's little helper'....sooo sweet x

  • Oooh!! Lulabellarama, my favourite cakes are lemon cakes and banana cakes!! I don't think I have ever properly baked a cake before, not since childhood!!

    I did make scones for the first time a couple of months ago and they were lovely! DH and I had them with really nice strawberry jam and cream. Delicious!!

    If anyone has any easy recipes (and that includes you, Lulabellarama, with the two you said!), can you post them cos I feel like I want to get in on the whole baking thing!!


  • This is the lemon cake recipe
    I'll get the banana one later as I have it written down at home.
  • Great! Thanks lulabellarama! Just need to get myself some tins and stuff!!

  • Oh I am sooo pleased i am not the only one who is getting into this. I am so excited about going home and making my cake tonight LOL i am such a wife!
