To quote Josh “for generations families have handed down recipes, now we switch to handing down wordpress database backups” This cake was made often by my mother, and I have the recipe on a tatty bit of paper in her handwriting. I am now handing it down in this new fangled way.
It is a perfect cake to have around as it isn’t overly sweet, and is wonderfully moist. If you are feeling indulgent a slice spread with butter is delicious, and it goes rather well with cherry jam too. It is good with a cup of tea, in a lunch box, and warmed in the microwave and covered in hot, creamy custard.
This cake also makes a lovely base for a trifle, mind you so does shop bought jam swiss roll, and you don’t have to make everything from scratch.
