COOKBOOK: Super Food Ideas Magazine (Dec 07)

RATE: ❤️❤️❤️ 👌🏻💲

Why was I so silly to have only made one cake! By the time I turned around, it was gone! Absolutely delicious! The orange syrup on the cake complimented the blueberries beautifully. It took minutes to prepare, 40mins to bake and seconds to be eaten!

RECIPE: Easy to follow. Fantastic recipe for a beginner. Don't be scared to add a little more syrup.It will be absorbed in the cake and it makes it that little more moist and tasty to eat.

Go ahead, bake it!
