BBC Good Food while looking for different ways of using my homemade Elderflower Cordial, and decided to give it a go!
Ingredients:For the Cake Base
175g softened butter (plus extra for greasing)
175g golden caster sugar
140g self-raising flour
85g ground almonds
½ tsp baking powder
For the Elderflower Drizzle
4 tbsp elderflower cordial
4 tbsp white or golden granulated sugar
To make the loaf cake batter, beat the butter and sugar with an electric whisk until light and fluffy.
Making a mess of the kitchen is optional.... or unavoidable in my case!!
I also tried to get creative with the decoration by mixing icing sugar and cordial to 'drizzle' over the top. My attempt is a bit more
messy rustic than the lovely photos you see on food blogs!!
