Raspberry, Blueberry and Lime Drizzle Cake

This cake is definitely one I will be making time and time again and I can't believe it has taken me so long to get round to making it.

It's full of fruity goodness and is a cake cum dessert bake. The lime drizzle is fresh and tangy, so it's a win, win bake.

I used frozen fruit and it worked perfectly, a tip here is not to stir frozen fruit into the cake mix or you will end up with streaked batter. I always put the batter into the lined tin and then simply put the fruit on top and press it down.

When it's cooled down cut into slices and put in the freezer for cake or dessert time!

The recipe is from the BBC Good Food website who, as always, bring us the most amazing bakes.

I know that there has been a lot in the press lately regarding obesity but it's everything in moderation. Although there are a number of sweet bakes on my website, I don't eat cake all day long:( My intake of cake is confined to one piece of cake in the evening with a cup of coffee, this ritual seems to take place at around 9 pm each evening and I am non the worse for this, because cake makes me happy! Most of the bakes on my website can be cut into sensible size portions and frozen, then thawed either in the microwave or at room temperature.

Happy baking and enjoy!

I haven't made this cake for several years, but I do remember it being good!

I've looked at that recipe so many times meaning to make it - their picture of it glistening is so appetising! Good to see that it turns out as well as the recipe says.

And yes, everything in moderation is the only sensible way!

My last post really shows what a regular French lunch is. This is what we have every day. (If we had company, we would have wine, a first dish and cheese, and we would leave the table around 4 o'clock). My husband has just complained that i don't make as many cakes as before... so I am going to try this one, with frozen sherreis, maybe. Thanks for the recipe!

It looks puffy and delicious. I love any cake (the sentence could stop here but I'll continue) with fruit in!
