After a bit of a baking drought over this prolonged period of sweltering weather, I'm back on it like the proverbial car bonnet. This week my new Nordic Ware Jubilee tin arrived, and was accompanied by much giddiness, frivolity and general behaviour which one day will see me living on a ward.
I wanted something summery, light and fruity to go in this beautiful tin, but it also had to be a sturdy mix which would pick up the beautiful design. Although this can be made in any bundt tin, it worked particularly well in the Jubilee. It's such a pretty design, I wanted to show it off. From some angles it looks like it's covered in diamonds, from above it's like a Spirograph design, and from the front you can see pretty hearts.
I took this cake into work today for my tame tribe of guinea pigs. Resounding success. A lovely bouncy texture with subtle tropical flavours, which are given a boost every couple of bites by the addition of the mango and passionfruit compote.
