It’s been a while since posting. With one thing and another, life had just got in the way of posting a recipe that I had filmed back in April!
Christmas has been and gone and it has been my first really relaxed Christmas for a long time. Part of that has been learning to enjoy baking and cooking again, especially for family and friends.
So here is my last post of 2018!
If you are looking for other biscuit based cake recipes, please take a look at my ever popular Chocolate Oreo Cake recipe. My Rose and Pistachio cake is also a winner and my Bakewell slice recipe is perfect for large parties. If you want to make the buttercream for this recipe in advance, take a look at my buttercream recipe for my classic Vegan Victoria Sponge
The written recipe is under the video. Enjoy!
