Chocolate and Orange Loaf

For years I have made 'Ice Lemon traybake' using a mixture of Icing sugar & lemon juice to decorate it. I'll be honest, I was… Continue reading Lemon Traybake – Variations.
Ok, I'm rehashing a recipe I've blogged about before but with an Easter spin.

The recipe for the traybake is here: Vanilla Traybake Be generous… Continue reading Easter Traybake
