Love Cake February 2019 round up

February is traditionally the month of love but of course our only love is that of cake! We've gone mad on the chocolate front this month so let's see what we have been baking.
I started off the month celebrating World Nutella Day. I could have just put some chocolate spread on a bit of toast but I knew putting some in a cake recipe would be a much better idea. All you need for this a jar of chocolate spread, a couple of eggs and some flour. What we particularly liked about this Nutella traybake cake is that the flavour of the hazelnut really comes through.
I find at the start of the year citrus fruits are at their best both in taste and juiciness. A batch of lemon and poppy seed muffins seemed just the thing to show off their flavour. With the addition of the poppy seeds these work well for both breakfast and a sweet treat.
If you ask around what people say their favourite cake is then I expect chocolate would could up the most. To celebrate 10 years of blogging Choclette at Tin and Thyme has gone back to where it all started with a recipe for a Chocolate Log. For this special anniversary she had also rounded up ten other favourite chocolate recipes from bloggers.

Thank you to Choclette for bringing so many wonderful recipes to us this month.  With February being such a short month you will already find March's Love Cake live.

  1. Thanks Ness. Much as I love chocolate, I quite fancy some of those lemon and poppy seed muffins. They look nice and fresh and ready for spring.
