Clandestine Cake Club - Saturday 18th April 2015

A couple of weeks ago the Bury St Edmunds Clandestine Cake Club returned to a great venue just a short distance from the centre of town. The Six Bells can be found in Horringer, just a short distance from the gates of Ickworth Park and is a fantastic place for lunch or dinner (their £10 lunch offer is an absolute bargain considering the quality of the food).

This visit was all about cake though and as well as the venue, I'd kept the theme a secret until just a few days before the event. This time, members were asked to bake a cake using just ingredients they had in their cupboards, so no choosing a recipe and then stocking up like usual! I made sure I kept to the brief as well and it was actually quite fun digging around in the cupboards and then searching for a recipe that fitted the bill.

There was just a small group of us this time but everyone did very well and we had a lovely selection of cakes to choose from...

Chrissi's Apple Crumble Cake

Hannah & Ian's Banana Loaf Cake

Sophie's Lime and Coconut Cake

My Ginger Syrup Cake

And finally, Trish's lovely Banana Caramel Cake which, even though there were only five cakes, I somehow managed not to get a photo of! Sorry Trish!

Thanks again to the Six Bells for being such great hosts as always.
