Recently there has been a lot of running, and not so much baking, but that balance is about to switch. Last week I was kindly sent some new baking supplies from a German-based website, MeinCupcake.DE. (They do have a UK website too, cakemark.co.uk).
Once I had chosen the items (from the huge extensive range of goods available including baking equipment, decorating supplies, flavourings, cake boxes and stands) they arrived within days. I was sent emails so I could track the parcel too.
I chose a bundt tin (I have been tempted by them for a while now), a loaf pan (my current one was going rusty and was too long for the loaf liners), a rolling pin for icing, and some straws.
Andy recently bought himself a mini smoothie maker (this one – a total bargain, easy to clean, and blends ice and frozen fruit), so this weekend after my 12 mile run he made a berry smoothie for us to share- any excuse for me to use the pretty straws!
On Sunday evening I decided to make some banana bread for work, using the excellent CCC recipe. I was very pleased to see that the new loaf pan was a perfect fit for the loaf liners.
It’s also dishwasher safe which I like, especially as I added in some butterscotch chips and some of them had burnt to the tin!
I have not used the bundt tin yet, but this recipe popped up on the CCC facebook page last night, so I might well be tempted. Although I think I would use mini eggs as I am not a creme egg fan.
Any good bundt cake recipes for me to try?
