Olive tested it as part of their cake feature, loved it, photographed it loads better than I did and put it in the issue, with a small picture of me. Plus they hardly edited any of my writing, which I was pleased about (not that I would have minded at all, it just indicates I’m doing food writing right).
You can all go buy the magazine for the recipe as I’m not sure where I now stand on posting it, but olive is a brilliant publication anyway, jam packed with mega-good recipes that I make all the time.As for the cake itself, it’s one I make all the time if family/mates ever come round, and it’s great for casual socialising or a BBQ. My mate Jordan (the one who takes the mick out of my introduction, and blog in general) said it was the best thing he’s ever tasted. This is coming from a boy who, in food technology at school made parkin which exploded in the oven, as if it was laced with gun powder, and was left with a 5mm lining of cake around the tin as a result. He likes to call it parkin ala-JK-explotique. So I’m not sure how confident I was of his opinion, but olive liked it as well so it must be worth something.
Here is the original photo I took. Go buy, go make, and go enjoy!
