Sticky rhubarb cake

I've been baking again! This time with rhubarb.

The cake was yummy warm out of the oven. I think it would go just as well with custard or a dollop of cream. The recipe can be found here.

Have a good bank holiday :)

Cambridge Clandestine Cake Club

I was luck to be part of the 1st Cambridge Clandestine Cake Club meeting. I was really nervous as i'd been speaking to a couple of the people attending via Twitter for a while. Now i was going to meet them in the flesh! I need not have been worried they were lovely :)

8 attended with 6 cakes. I did not have breakfast, as I knew I would be eating cake! We chatted and drank tea.
I made a Chocolate - Orange and chilli cake
At the end when we had all been caked out! we shared the remaning cake.

I had a fantastic morning taking about and eating cake. Can not wait for the next one :)
