August was a month of many birthdays and it provided me with two opportunities to bake cakes for people. At the end of the month, I attempted to bake a chocolate orange cakein time for my sister’s birthday (it’s another BBC Good Food recipe). She likes chocolate oranges AND she likes cake… I was hardly going to bake something using green tea and KitKats!
My mum’s birthday came and went very recently and following the success of the chocolate cake-bake for my own birthday bake in March, I decided some time ago that I would be baking a white chocolate [mum’s favourite] cake for this occasion.
Above, you can see all of the ingredients I used (excluding the kitchen cleaner and bottle of olive oil!). Almost every item could be purchased from my local Lidl store, with the exception of only buttermilk and vanilla essence. There’s a chance you could find these in a larger Lidl but, while I was shopping elsewhere with no more than a basket in hand, I decided to buy myself a new liquid measuring jug – one with a scale you can easily read without the need for backlighting!
