The summer holidays are nearly over and the children are heading back to school. School shoes have been purchased, PE kits pulled out of the cupboard under the stairs 😉 and for many of us it’s back to routine & packed lunches. Mrs Darlington’s Tangy Blackcurrant Traybake is a delicious cake that’s quick & easy to make & extremely light and moist. Perfect for slicing up & popping into a lunchbox. (We also love it served warm with custard)😋😋 recipe on or can be posted here, just shout if you are interested.
