Cake

I just ‘had’ to start a cake thread! I had loads of leftover Easter Eggs and finally found an excellent way to use (some of) them up! Enter the Honeycomb Milk Chocolate Easter Egg Fudge Cake  I made a chocolate fudge cake using Easter Eggs instead of Dark Chocolate and Honeycomb Hot Chocolate powder instead of Cocoa powder. The result is a delicious combination of Honeycomb, fudge and Chocolate Easter Egg! The smell is Devine too, my kitchen smells of Honeycomb and fudge!

So, what’s the best cake you’ve ever baked?

  • My mother was the obsessive cook in the family.  She baked cakes often twice a week. 

    One of her recipes was a poppy seed cake.   This cake was made up of around 50% poppy seed.

    My sister described her experience of eating this cake at work.  She was working in an open plan office in a university administration department. And one of her colleagues was shocked that she was eating 'IT' just like that.   Biting and swallowing whole pieces.  He thought she was eating whole bars of raw opium seeds.

    It's not opium, but edible European poppy.  Although I have heard that the two are closely related .  And drugs tests can mistake one for the other.
