Simnel cake, I love thee….
Let me count the pieces….
It calls to me:)
I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE Simnel cake….
I only make it 2-3 times a year because any semblance of self-control goes out the window…
And because it is light( well mine is) then one can eat and eat and eat and then its ALL GONE!!
I can’t give it away either…..
I have to eat it!!
This time I was especially bad and put marzipan on the top too…
NOT A GOOD LOOK! Well it was but not good for my hips….
Mmmmm Glace cherries and marzipan, my fav’s!!
Anyhow each time I make it, I slightly tweak or play round with the fruit volume or if I am feeling very very GREEDY, I add in more Glace cherries and marzipan!!
I had to……YOUR HONOR….It would have been wrong not to use my marzipan my friend sent me:)
All I can say is MAKE IT, MAKE IT, MAKE IT!!
Enjoy, ENJOY and Enjoy….
You better eat it quick too, before I come and eat it for you:)
