Wild Blackcurrant Loaf Cake

Wild Blackcurrant Loaf Cake C

Wild blackcurrant conserve is the reason for this recipe. It’s an ingredient I’ve used before and upon using it again I knew just the cake! Loaf cakes speak of generosity and plenty in a homely way compared to, say, a layer cake and with a coat of frosting can be just as elegant. The conserve lends a vibrant pink hue without the need for food colouring – and did I mention the taste?

Blackcurrant & Vanilla Swirl Cake

Blackcurrant & Vanilla B

This is a recipe I shall never cease using: it’s simple to do and highly interchangeable. I first did it using strawberry jam and star anise to flavour, and I’ll be sure to do it again using different flavours, perhaps blueberry conserve and lemon zest or damson plum conserve and ginger. Just pick a preserve you like and a flavour to pair it with and you can make up your own wonderful combinations!
