For the love of cake!

Our week long bake sale at the start of August in support of McMillan Cancer Care saw us raise an amazing £425.61 

We were blown away by your generosity. Team and patients provided so many lovely bakes from banana bread to cake pops, carrot cakes and meringue, we discovered what a talented bunch you all are! A huge thank you to everyone who baked for us.

At Inspired Health we like to think of ourselves as a family. Our inspiration for the bake sale was the daughter of one of our wellbeing patients. Trev and his family have been wellbeing patients for many years, recently Trev’s 14 year old daughter, Leah, was diagnosed with a rare bone cancer and is bravely facing chemotherapy and surgery. Leah has passed on her thanks to you all for your kind efforts in support.

We had so many creations, here is the recipe for one of our favourites:

Easy peasy Lemon squeezy Drizzle Cake:

Ingredients:

225g Caster Sugar

225g Unsalted butter

4 Eggs

225g Self Raising flour

Zest and juice of one lemon.

Method:

Cream together the butter and sugar.

Beat in eggs one at a time.

Fold in the flour.

Add the zest and juice of the lemon.

Pour into a greaseproof paper lined tin.

Bake at 180 degrees/c for 50 mins.

Once cooked, leave in the tin to begin to cool.

Mix 85g caster sugar and the juice of 2 lemons together. Prick the top of the cake with a fork and pour over the lemon juice and sugar drizzle topping. Leave to cool for at least 1 hour then remove from tin and enjoy with a lovely cup of tea!
