Baking is my happy place – I absolutely adore it and if I could do it all day every day, I’d be thrilled. Another thing I absolutely adore is creating recipes – can’t find a recipe for what I want to bake (or don’t love the ones out there) will find me putting together my own.
Succos is the festival of the booths. We typically eat our family meals in a hut that we temporarily put up for the holiday. Being that it falls in Autumn (yes – that word is way better then Fall – and being that I am British I like to use my mother tongue) when the weather is usually shifting to cooler temps – and sitting outdoors in a hut – instead of some fancy dessert I like to serve a variety of cakes. Whole Wheat Bundt cakes are my specialty and when I have time I post my creations on Instagram.
This Succos I browsed my recipes and decided on 2 recipes from OvertimeCook.com: A Marble Pumpkin and a Caramel Apple. I needed a third one to round it out and nothing I found spoke to me. I really wanted a Blueberry Streusel but couldn’t find one – so I created one and it was by far a firm favorite from the three!
Side note: This vanilla cake is a FAB basic cake – I use it for many types of cakes – maybe one day I’ll share ideas!
