My Everything Cake – Ginger, Dark Chocolate and Walnut with Butterscotch Icing

Posted on

Homemade With Mess

This cake is my ‘everything cake’ as I literally put everything from my cake cupboard in it! I was craving a baking session and on inspection of the contents of my larder (my larder consists of a single shelf, but it sounds more foodie), I noticed I had multiple of bags of odds and sods that needed using up, and therefore decided to just throw them all together into this delicious cake. Some of the ingredients may seem a little strange, but as if often the case with whip up recipes, they really worked! If you don’t believe me then you will just have to try it for yourself.
