cordial & cake

Dear Annie,


Having made several bottles of elderflower cordial, the perfect accompaniment to a refreshing cold glassful had to be a slice of cake. A Victoria Sponge, made with a tablespoon of cordial in place of the teaspoon of vanilla, and filled with a simple gooseberry fool. Unfortunately I am still not used to my new fan oven, and therefore have a new (and deeply irritating) tendency to slightly over bake cakes so it wasn't a perfect sponge. Nevertheless, this was a little slice of heaven.

Love from,

Laura
