Time for another bake from the Cake Slice Bakers. We're still baking from "World Class Cakes" by by Roger Pizey. This month our choices were
- Olive Oil Cake with Fresh Peaches p.83
- Hummingbird Cake p.34
- M’hanncha p.234
- Oliver Peyton’s Strawberry and Marjoram Cream Tart p.250
They were all tempting options, especially the Olive Oil Cake but I've been wanting to try a Hummingbird Cake for a long time, so it was really an easy decision for me. I found the recipe easy to follow. I did substitute 1 can of drained pineapple for the fresh pineapple, and the cake still came out quite moist and flavorful.
The recipe calls for a cream cheese which I found a little sweet for the cake. We all liked the taste of the cream cheese with the cake, so I might try to make it with a little less sugar next time. I also added unsweetened coconut to the top, and I think that might have been good in between the layers.
The cake was very moist and a great texture and flavor. My family gobbled it up. It will definitely be added to our regular rotation of cakes.
