I have a deadline coming up soon. Two in fact, in quick succession.
So of course I baked a cake this evening, whilst watching the iron lady.
It's a strange kind of coffee cake. Again a little made up, but surprisingly sucessful:
Coffee (made super strong coffee in cafetiere, then boiled this on the hob until it was super concentrated)
about 200g self raising flour - enough to make it cake batter looking
Then there's a cheeky hollow in the middle with coffee buttercream in - but you can't really see it in the photos... then coffee glace icing on the top.
New point system:
Housemate envy + 5/10 (it's kind of safe, but everyone loves coffee cake it seems)
Presentation points + 1/10 (big fat mess - top layer may or may not have broken in two when removed from tin...)
Yummy points + 8/10 (light sponge, but not enough coffee taste)
Total points today : 14/30
