Apple Crumble is a family favourite for pudding for us, spanning three generations. When I managed to fix up a recipe for Apple Crumble Cake last month, I knew it would be a corker!
Vegan Apple Crumble Cake
• First stew the apples. Do this by mixing the apple ingredients into a saucepan and leave to simmer until they're soft. This will take a while to cook and cool.
• Now make the crumble by rubbing the ingredients together to form a soft crumbly mix. Put to one side.
• Put all cake ingredients in a bowl and mix until smooth.
• Put the mixture into a lined, greased loaf tin.
• Bake at 180°C for approximately 30 minutes. Half way through, sprinkle the crumble mix on the top - a generous amount!
• The cake is ready when it's golden on top, and a skewer comes out clean
• When the cake is cool (no sooner or it'll fall apart!), slice it in half horizontally through the middle and fill with the stewed apples. Carefully put the 'lid' of the cake back on, taking care not to lose any crumble.
Ta dah! Enjoy. x

On Saturday, the 280 Bakes team tried something new - we took part in a parade!
Lawrence Weston Carnival was held on Saturday 18th June this year, and we were pleased to be invited to join in the fun. Two of our team dressed up and boogied down Long Cross (main road in Lawrence Weston) to the beat of drums, with wheelchairs decorated like sunflowers, a flying pig, and so much more!
Here are some of the photos from the day - thankfully the rain held off! We're already looking forward to next year!
We had a wide range of cakes on sale - and I'm pleased to say we sold out! (bar two flapjack, which we had for dinner!).
Thanks to all our customers, and to the organisers of the carnival. Big thanks also to Bri and Suz who helped out - couldn't have done it without you.
One of my customers called me last week and asked for a very special order: One Victoria Sponge cake, butter iced all over - just plain, nothing more. This was for her boyfriend's birthday and his kids (aged 3 and 6) were going to spend the morning decorating it for him, so they needed a plain canvas. I was happy to help, and here's the results!
For an extra special surprise, I put in a layer of fondant icing with the jam, and I filled the centre of the cake with jelly babies. Apparently, the delighted squeals from the kids (and possibly dad) were audible from outside the house!
It certainly looked like fun. If your kids would enjoy an afternoon decorating a cake, you know what to do - give us a call on 07835 882817 or find us on Facebook and Twitter.

Yesterday we were lucky enough to be representing cakes at a Bristol wedding fair - not a bad gig for our first wedding event! We joined around 30 other wedding suppliers, from amazing magician Grant Maidment to the lovely guys from wedding band 'The Hot Hats' in the Mercure Hotel, Bristol, and welcomed in newly engaged couples.
Take a look at some of the wedding cakes we had on display, and find out more on our sister website. 280 Bakes Weddings.
We wish all our couples a wonderful wedding, and more importantly, a very happy marriage.
We're looking forward to our next wedding event! Join us on Sunday 24th July at Ashton Gate Stadium, Bristol. For more info, please contact Bristol Wedding Fairs.
