Last month we caught up with our new baker at The Tearoom, Red Hill-Walker and she has been keeping us updated with all things cake at the castle!
And here’s what she has been up to since we met her in our last blog:
The new cakes are keeping me very busy indeed and the oven is constantly full. Our carrot cakes are flying out and the new lemon drizzle loaf is catching up fast as the The Tearooms‘ best sellers. This month, we’re sharing a recipe with you, that the staff at The Tearooms have nominated this as their favourite. It is so easy to make, you’ll all be expert bakers in no time!
Why not buttercream on the top of and some chocolate drizzle? Now make a lovely cup of tea and admire (and of course taste) the results!
To get the best performance out of your oven, invest in a good oven thermometer. Domestic ovens are not the most accurate, baking really good sponges is a breeze at the correct temperature. Move it up and down the shelves to work out where best to position your baking.
We would love to see your photos of you baking or even eating this delicious recipe @edinburghcastle #edinburghcastle – next time you’re at the castle don’t forget to stop in to try some of her delicious treats!
