I bought a copy of Mary Berry’s Baking Bible at the weekend and today I made the almond and chocolate chip cake. It was incredibly easy to make, as all the ingredients are put in one bowl and mixed together, and it’s lovely. Maybe a bit too lovely as I’m craving a second slice.
Learning to make new desserts is one of the objectives on my 101 list, but I can’t make too many cakes as that would be a disaster for my diet. I also want my cakes to have less fat than the one I just made so the next time I make it I’m going to replace the butter with mashed bananas.
