Blackberry and Walnut Squares (recipe)

A baking post for you and change from my sometimes silly tales. 🙂 the cake recipe courtesy of a blogger by the name of Lisa and her very own recipe, and you’ll of course be aware blackberries are in season in the UK at present.

So without further ado here’s a list of ingredients and method of making the cake (note it’s crumbly and a bit difficult to get out the tin) also I took a series of photographs to follow……….pictures always help in cook books and a video post will follow next.

2. How to bake a chocolate cake

You may understand by now this isn’t my first WordPress Blog and I’ve refrained from uploading any previously shown posts simply because simply they’re no longer in existence, that’s ok though.

HOWEVER I’m re-showing my ‘How to bake a Chocolate Cake’ post simply because the videos and cake took me all afternoon to make/bake back in early spring this year, so isn’t strictly that long ago is it!

The cake recipe is passed down from my Grandma and many years ago was reprinted in a cookery book published by a friend of the family, truth be told the recipe is no different than any other cake recipe but there you are a little family myth never hurts 🙂

I haven’t time to re write the full recipe out because the book resides at my mother’s but it will re appear and maybe leave me a comment to remind me 🙂 In the meantime enjoy, the cake which tasted very nice so my nephews say 🙂

(Btw, the video was filmed and narrated by me and also appears on my YouTube Channel)
