    A vanilla ombré cake for a 90th birthday. It's ombré sponge on the inside but unfortunately didnt have my phone to hand to get a photo of it.

    Made another of these for my aunts birthday today and got a snap of the inside. Ignore the crumbs, a couple of healthy slices had been cut at this stage!

    Made a birthday cake for my step-mom's 50th birthday. Stressed out having to transport it half way across the country but it got there in (more or less) one piece :P

    Great looking stuff so far guys, keep them coming :D

    No problem :)

    I use a sweet shortcrust pastry for the base:
    8 oz of flour
    4 oz of butter
    2 oz of caster sugar
    A large egg

    The crumble topping is an Odlums recipe and tastes great. It makes enough for two tarts on dinner plates or a huge crumble in a dish.
    6 oz of flour - plain or self raising, I never notice a difference
    4 oz of butter
    4 oz of soft brown sugar (dark gives a better flavour)
    4 oz of porridge oats
    I just put it all into a large bowl and rub it all together.

    *I stew the rhubarb in the juice of an orange then let it cool, and when I divide it between the two tarts I add the contents of a punnet of strawberries, chopped. I bake them for about 30 minutes at 180C

    This thread is really giving me the baking bug again! I had stopped for a good while because my brother is getting married next Friday so I would only be tempting myself if I kept it up! I did bake lemon drizzle cake on Sunday - my excuse was that the lemons were about to go off if I didn't use them...:D Bought some into work and my dad devoured some as well :)

    Banana and Hazelnut bread ... was amazing should have take a pic but it didn't last very long :P


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,311 ✭✭✭ tampopo


    I'm having to eat it all myself though. That's the only drawback...

    Just made the kinder Bueno fudge from the She Who Bakes blog. It smells so sweet and delicious but I think it's going to be very more-ish so a tiny piece should be enough to keep me satisfied! Waiting patiently til morning for it to set so fingers crossed it will be as tasty as it smells!

    Got a load of rhubarb from the parents garden (they were trying to get rid of it)... found this recipe, tried it out, success! Went down a treat with everyone, will be calling back up for more rhubarb!


    **used shop bought pastry, dont think ive ever baked anything successfully before so wasnt willing to try making some from scratch!

    While there's a glut I usually cut up a load, sprinkle it with sugar and freeze it so we can have a crumble or two in the winter :)

    My freezer is mainly tubs of rhubarb at the moment for this very reason! I've done crumbles and simple compotes, which I love in porridge.

    I might try the tart next time!
