This zesty Lemon and Buttermilk Traybake is so moist, light and tangy. It would be perfect for an afternoon tea or even to sell at a fete or coffee morning.
This recipe came about for two reasons. Firstly, I had some buttermilk that needed using up, and rather than make scones or soda bread or even banana bread, I wanted to make a cake. Secondly, I had been asked to make lemon sponge birthday cake earlier this week, and it has been so long since I had made one myself, that I was really fancying one. Therefore, I decided to make a Lemon and Buttermilk Traybake.
This delicious Slow Cooker Blueberry, Lemon & Ginger Cake is made in the slow cooker / crock pot in just 3 hours.
Since I tried making my first cake in a slow cooker earlier this year, I have been keen to try out some new recipes. Earlier in the week, I had some blueberries that needed eating up and seeing as though I was off on a play date the next day I thought a cake would make use of the fruit. Finding a jar of opened lemon curd inside my fridge, it seemed only fitting to make a Slow Cooker Blueberry, Lemon & Ginger Cake. Read More
So this week was celebrating all things Tudor in the tent and when I first saw what the categories were, which, by the way, are:
Showstopper: Marzipan Centrepiece
Welcome to week 6 of the Great Bloggers Bake Off following week 6 of the GBBO, and tonight saw another new theme for GBBO with Botanical. The categories this week were:
Signature : Citrus Meringue Pie
Technical : 2 French Herb Fougasse Breads
Showstopper : 3 Tiered Flower Cake
My timeline has been filled with scrummy looking drizzle cakes since the GBBO ended on Wednesday night, and seeing as though my recipe entered for week 1 did not strictly come under any of the 3 baking categories, I felt I should rectify that at my earliest opportunity. hence, this Ginger and Lemon Drizzle Cake will be my second cake linked up this week.
