Love Cake September 2017 round up

It's been another quiet month for Love Cake and the theme of Use your loaf. I've actually baked several of my favourite loaf cakes for Macmillan coffee mornings and group walks this month. The Crunchy lemon drizzle loaf cakes and Fruit tea loaf always go down a treat.
I chose this month to make use of some of the autumnal fruits from our allotment. We get a supply of raspberries in the summer months but the biggest raspberries, both in terms of size and yield, comes in the autumn. For a quick cake on a Sunday afternoon I decided to make a Chocolate and raspberry loaf cake. I nearly came a cropper when I found I barely had any cocoa powder. I refused to let my cake making plans be thwarted and just lowered the amount of cocoa in the cake. It was still able to deliver the necessary chocolate hit.

I'll be back in a couple of days with a haunting theme for our October Love Cake.
