A Strawberry Bonanza! - Helen Has A Happy Bake 🍰

🍓Thank you to Helen, who is the first of our community to share a picture of her Victoria Sponge Success after trying the recipe from our new Blake & Bull guide to baking. What a whopper! 🍓

I used fewer eggs as I was a bit short and I have to say I've never seen such a good rise for just 3 eggs! Simply brilliant! That vinegar trick seemed to make a real difference.  Please pass on my thanks."

@stevecooksmakesbakes, who gifted us this recipe says - "You can indeed make a very presentable cake with 3 eggs for everyday consumption - but the 4 egger gives a better ‘wow’ result to show off with!

We think that Helen certainly achieved the WOW factor with her yummy offering, lets see yours!

Katy is a rural girl at heart. She loves long walks, home cooking, paddling in rivers, warm fires and socks and stomping in leaves with her children. After studying ‘drawing stuff’ at university in Bath, Katy spent 10 years selling wares and managing folk at Habitat in Bath. Welcoming children into her world prompted her to return to drawing things, people and places from home. This led her to us at Blake & Bull and the rest is history. She draws our stuff, provides cuddles for the office dog, and is here to chat to you lovely lot.
