Another weekend...another cake! This was a victoria sandwich filled with clotted cream, fresh strawberries and strawberry jam. I use the same quantaties as the lemon drizzle cake below but omiting the lemon zest and lemon icing. For an extra treat melt some dark chocolate and spread over the two cake halves whilst the are cooling. Chocolate, cream and strawberries - is there any better combination?
Reaching the final of Masterchef 2007 was a rollercoaster of emotion, with huge highs and lows, but I loved every minute and learnt a huge amount. I owe a great deal to John and Gregg who had faith in my ability when I did not believe in myself. Since competing on the programme my life has changed considerably. I now write cookery columns for two magazines, give cookery demonstrations and am just working on my 13th cook book - unlucky number for some but not for me!!! I love all forms of country cooking, using seasonal and locally sourced produce. This blog is to enable me to share with you a few of my recipes and baking ideas. Enjoy Hannah xxxx
