Here we are again, rapidly approaching the end of the month and it is time to see all those yummy Sticky Ginger cakes that you've been baking. I hope you enjoyed the recipe. I have seen a few blog posts and a few pictures floating around twitter, and aside from some exploding cakes(!), the feedback seems to be that the cake went down well.
Thank you to everyone who joined in with last month's recipe - lovely to see some new faces too. All the creations looked yummy and there were some great variations involving different chocolate, apples and cinnamon. Congratulations to Sian at Pumpkin and Piglet who the random number generator picked as the winner of the lovely glass cake stand - enjoy! This month's recipe is apple crumble cupcakes, which I came up with to use up some cooking apples I have leftover. If you don't have cooking apples then I'm sure eating apples would work just as well, you may just need one extra for the recipe as cooking apples are generally bigger than eating apples.
Last month I decided to enter English Mum's Big Bakeoff with my Summer strawberry cupcakes. I watched, with my mouth watering, as the entries poured in. There were some truly wonderful looking cakes and cupcakes, and some brilliant children's entries.
Firstly, a huge thank you to everyone who joined in with the July Bake It! recipe. The lemon squares all looked delicious and I hope you enjoyed the recipe.
