Rhubarb upside down cake

Like cake? Want more cake? Who doesn’t? Cake is a shortcut to happiness and the easiest way to bribe people into liking you.

Cake fanatics are in for a treat because on the 19th April a column entitled Cake and Eat It was published at Aol Lifestyle. It’s written by a certain humble blogger (i.e. me) and will regularly delight your oven and tins with flour and sugar-based concoctions.

The first recipe to appear was Rhubarb upside down cake, a slumping, sticky bake with a layer of pink rhubarb sliding around on top of a toffee-sauce soaked sponge. Sounds alright, doesn’t it? The second cake is more of a bread – I’m interpreting my brief liberally – and literally perfect for Good Friday: Hot cross bun loaf.

As well as fine bakery from me, there are deeply tempting savoury recipes from Food Stories and debate from Andrew Webb and Louisa Carter. I will be hurt and disappointed if you don’t go there regularly to read all the lovely things and then make all the lovely recipes. Hurt and disappointed.
