Yesterday I spent the day just loafing around… get it? Ha-ha – sorry! No really, I was having a bit of a chill day and really fancied a slice of cake. Loaf cakes are so simple and easy to do and as Valentines is just around the corner I thought I’d include a little twist.
Just because I love to bake and create fabulous detailed designed cakes doesn’t mean I don’t love a simply but yummy loaf-cake every now and again.
This cake is a chance to show off your baking skills and I promise you, it’ll taste delicious! The little hearts are such a nice surprise too. Loaf cakes are super easy to prepare and perfect for slicing and sharing with those you love. This cake is simple enough for everyday baking yet perfectly lovely for special occasions – like Valentines!
Now, I say it’s simple – it is – but you do need to bake two cakes altogether so you will need to have a little patience – not something I’m great at either sometimes.
Personally we didn’t think it needed any buttercream or icing as the cake is super-moist and totally lovely on it’s own.
Instead of a chocolate sponge colour pink maybe?
Flavour it up – chocolate orange or hazelnut would be lovely.
Use any cutter – doesn’t have to be just hearts – you could even use somebody’s initials.
Enjoy! And Happy Valentines
