It's all about the Almond cake...

What to cook for the birds when you've been at work all day and then at a Parents' Evening? I started with the pud, on Wednesday night. I'd made this before but no one could remember; luckily this one was memorable, tasty, sweet & citrusy. I steeped the syrup ingredients over night - the cinnamon & star anise flavours beautifully infused the sticky syrup and I dripped it over the cake just before serving.

I think I found this recipe in a Sainsburys magazine years's a copy of it.
The main course consisted of hearty jacket potatoes, stuffed with cheese and lashings of butter, accompanied with a delicious ratatouille.

Some left over for lunch...mmmm

There's a bit of the cake left for breakfast, after each bird sampled an extra slither of the Almond cake! A hit!

Happy baking
