Park Life

When Hannah told me she would be sitting in the park with her disposable BBQ, plus soaking up the sun. My first thought was 'I better bake some bread and a cake'.

What went down:

Oven 180°C
grease square tin with removable base

200g self raising flour
370g caster sugar
180ml groundnut oil
half tsp bicarbonate of soda
80g G&B cocoa powder
200ml hot water
1 tsp almond essence
zest of 1 orange
4 medium eggs
100g G&B milk chocolate
1 tbsp milk

whisk hot water, bicarbonate of soda and cocoa powder
leave to one side to cool down

meanwhile whisk eggs, sugar and oil
add flour, zest and essence
fold in all these ingredients then pour in cocoa solution
pour this into cake tin and bake for 40 minutes.

let it out and rest for 20 minutes.

melt chocolate with milk and cover top of cake.
add smarties

share and enjoy.

Ever had prunes wrapped in bacon at Christmas? Well banana wrapped in bacon just beat it.

Good shout Hannah!
