There's no cause like a good cause, and this week my work pals and I embarked on a fundraising mission for one of our own. A friend of ours is very poorly, so we set about a team pursuit to make her smile.
One thing we are really good at is a bake sale. Between us we bake a damn fine spread! I know that anything a bit fruity or spicy goes down a treat, so I decided to transform some beautiful rhubarb, apple and ginger compote I bought a couple of weeks ago into something yummy. This makes a beautifully spiced cake with a soft, moist crumb and a decent sugar crust.
