Bake Off season is here again, which means the return of the Great Bloggers Bake Off! What a fantastic excuse to try baking one of the recipes from the programme.
I will be dipping in and out depending on other commitments, but I thought I'd start by taking part in week 1 and so I baked Mary Berry's Cherry Cake.
Though I desperately wanted to go out and buy a Bundt tin just so I could make a perfect replica of the ring shaped cake on the show, I resisted, knowing full well that I probably use it once or twice and then leave it to collect dust, though Amazon did report they'd had a surge in sales! The good news is it still baked right through to the middle and didn't suffer for being incorrectly shaped.
The recipe is here on the BBC Website and I must say despite all the furrowed brows and stressing over even distribution of cherries during the technical challenge, I did find it very easy it is to make... and that is even after I forgot to coat my cherries in flour too!
