The Spice of Life

  • In Selby town centre.

The Spice of Life is found in cake! Think of all those lovely spices which warm you in the autumn months: cinnamon, ginger, speculaas, mixed spice, ground spice, allspice, cloves, nutmeg, star anise, cardamon or mace!
Bake a cake which uses a spice or two and tickle our taste buds.

Additional info

Parking is within the town centre and there will be refreshments available to buy.

I am sorry that I will be away on holiday for this event but Shirl is going to step in and run things for me. She will be taking the photos and sending them to me so I can update the event on CCC website.
If I was coming to th event I would be making carrot cake and adding Speculaas Spice. I bought mine in Netherlands but here is the recipe if you'd like to make your own.
Makes: 4 tablespoons

6 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons ground mace or 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground white pepper (optional)
1 teaspoon ground aniseed (optional)
