Lastnight we had a very special Clandestine Cake Club meeting held at Cynthia Spencer Hospice in Northampton. The centre provides hospice and palliative care services for south Northamptonshire. While the Hospice is mainly funded by the NHS, this year however, to maintain their exceptional quality of care, they have to raise an extra £704,000 through charitable donations and fund raising activities. Money raised this way is used to employ staff for the benefit of patients and to provide equipment and comforts to make their stay as comfortable as possible.
The theme, given Christmas is just days away, was "Season of Goodwill" so many of us not only brought cakes to share on the night, but gifts to leave for the hospice to sell or raffle.
This week I decided to make an Apple Bavarian Torte. I found the recipe on t'interweb, made no adjustments as I thought it sounded scummy just as it was...
Fresh from the oven!
Some of the cakes brought along for us to sample...
My final plate..... eyes bigger than my belly, I just couldn't finish!!
If you'd like to have a go at making the Apple Bavarian Torte, here's the recipe;
Most importantly.... Enjoy!!
