Bake Day Wednesday is back!

Tonight is the first in the new series of The Great British Bake Off, so I am celebrating with the return of bakes on a Wednesday (I can probably manage twelve weeks of bakes...).

First off was meant to be a battenberg, but I forgot that I had lemons that needed using, so I went for a lemon drizzle cake instead. Classic and very lovely.

We also made chocolate brownies at my son's request, and he made them pretty much by himself (I did help with the weighing out though, otherwise he would have added all the flour, all the sugar, all the butter, quite a lot of eggshell, possibly not that much egg, and no chocolate as he would have eaten it all). He had a lovely time mixing all the ingredients together, even if he did cover himself in batter, and an even better time washing up afterwards - I think that was mostly the bubbles. He did an excellent job, they're delicious.

Clearly we couldn't wait to get started on these!

Fingers crossed we'll be back next week with something a little more ambitious.

  1. Bubbles! Bubbles are great. As are brownies. And lemon drizzle cake.
