We had family visitors to stay and my Uncle loves this cake so we made it specially for him. We didn't have any walnuts but actually the toasted almonds tasted better, not so bitter with the coffee.
Bloke is 40 today. Happy Birthday! He has opened his presents. A big Thank you to Tales from Swallow barn for recommending a cookbook to me. I bought it straight away and he loved it. Every recipe has a vegetable or fruit ingredient which is great for our allotment production and he makes a mean cake.
He was quite taken with Lemon and Lavender drizzle cake which contained a swede so we will have to wait and see what happens there!
Hope you are enjoying cake today! Jo x
