Here’s the second attempt at simnel cake - a thousand times better than the first.

Here’s the second attempt at simnel cake - a thousand times better than the first.

Just baked my second simnel cake.

Couldn’t really give the family a broken cake so the first is being distributed around various people.

It worked out as 611 calories per slice, which is a lot but i’ll burn it off and I hardly ever get fruit cake.

My first simnel cake. I took it out of the tin too early and it fell apart, so i’m making another today, hopefully no accidents this time!

My first ever simnel cake is in the oven!

It looks amazing, smells great and the batter tastes divine. Here’s hoping the oven is ok, we usually have to put it a gas mark higher so I have done. Cooking time is 2 hours …wonder when it’s safe to check it.

All the recipes seem to confirm what I thought:

Basically use brown sugar instead of white and add soaked chopped dates to a regular cake mixture.

Toffee buttercream seems fairly straightforward too. Can’t wait to try it at Easter.
