Love Cake September 2018 round up

My social media feeds have been full of this cake this week as the country has been getting together for the Macmillan World's Biggest Coffee Morning. I've been joining in as well and found myself five cakes this week! It's not just Macmillan though so let's see what other cakes have been made this month.
If you're in a rush but still in need of cake then try out my Quick and easy brownies. They aren't as ingredients heavy as my standard brownies and can be mixed together in one go. After half an hour in the oven they will be ready – perfect for an after school treat.
My Sunday Fruit Cake was inspired after a trip to a Lancashire market and the purchase of some local cheese. It is a light fruit cake with a hint of spice for flavour. Just the right cake to serve for Sunday teatime with a slice of crumbly cheese.
There was a table laden with homemade goodies for the Macmillan World's Biggest Coffee Morning I attended this week. Since I have been to this venue before I knew a lot would be needed so I turned up with five cakes – coffee and walnut, cappuccino, strawberry ripple, vegan toffee apple and my trusty fruit tea loaf. Within 20 minutes it looked like a plague of locusts had been through as most of the cakes were reduced to crumbs. It was a very successful event and £221 will now be winging its way to Macmillan.

I'll be back in a couple of days as the days grow colder and the evenings darker with October's Love Cake.
