It's nearly the end of June, which in my annual calendar means saying farewell to my final year students and wishing them good luck for life after University. We had a little get together with drinks on Wednesday and I baked a cake.
Congratulations to the Class of 2013, BA (Hons) Photography, Manchester School of Art!
Some of them are having an exhibition in London in July, following on from their degree show. Have a look at their website and pop in if you're in the area.
Oh and the cake was good and well worth making! The recipe can be easily halved and made in a loaf tin or 20cm ring pan. That's what the original recipe was, but I doubled it to use my Gugelhupf pan.
Lemon Berry Cake (makes 1 cake)
1 1/2 cups caster sugar (I used light brown as I was out)
rind of 2 lemons
3 cups self-raising flour
1 cup milk
1/2 cup lemon juice
icing sugar for dusting
Preheat your oven to 180°C/Gas 4/350 F. Grease a gugelhupf pan really well and dust with flour.
