The morning went well, Lindsey may have raised over £700 for Kids Inspire (rough calculation, may be more), Beth sold some stuff and both my cakes were eaten, slice by slice, with some nice comments.
As they went well, here's the two recipes
The cinnamon apple cake.
I hope this links works for you - it should take you straight to the 'print' page as the main page is another one that goes all round the houses before you find what you actually want! All the advertising seems to be very much a 'thing' nowadays but I find it annoying!
The only thing I changed was that I added a bit of cinnamon to the cake batter as well as to the topping so it turned a sludgy brown. Next time I'll not do that.
It was extremely easy to make.
The texture was soft and it really was delicious.
The coffee and walnut cake
This went down a real treat. I kept hearing really good comments about it! Nice.
The only thing I changed was that I made the coffee in my cafetiere, double strength (and I usually have it pretty strong).
It's basically a 4-4-2-4 mixture but, because of the added coffee liquid, it wasn't quite as light and fluffy as it would have been if I'd added coffee powder (not granules) and I might try that next time and see.
Anyway, there you go - two cakes that worked really well and when I bake for the Christmas Fair, I may very well make them again!
