Hello folks!

Support my wee channel (only if you want 🙂

Welcome back to What’s For Tea 🙂 and today I made a Battenberg cake! This very British cake looks amazing and tastes lovely too…if you don’t like almonds, leave out the almonds and cover the cake in fondant indeed of the marzipan. Easier than you’d think to make this look decent!

Everything I used will be mentioned below incase you want to make it for yourself. Thanks for stopping by,

    Looks amazing Cheryl. Took a little bit of skill to make it. Looks really tasty. A nice big slice with a good coffee would be very satisfying. A real tea time treat. Well anytime treat. Thanks for being brave and having a go making it. Yum x

    From "Eating Royally", Darren McGrady – Of course the Queen was not the only person who liked teatime. Most members of the royal family liked a good afternoon tea. Her Royal Highness the Duchess of York, Sarah Ferguson, loved elaborate afternoon teas. She had an office in Buckingham Palace and regularly held teas for twelve or more. In addition to the regular tea provisions, she would add several more cakes and sausage rolls. She loved Battenburg Cake and I once sent up an absolutely perfect Battenburg Cake that I had made for her tea. It was returned uneaten with instructions not to serve her “store-bought” tea cakes again. A bit of a backhanded compliment I suppose! Oh well, the chefs enjoyed it.

    It looks amazing!!!! But just listening to you makes me miss my neighbor growing up in California. She was from Scotland and after all these years she has never lost her Scottish accent. I can still hear her say, “wee bit” or “thanks for poppin’ over.”

    Cheryl, this looks so tasty. In my house, those off cuts/trimmings would have been gone before the cake was even assembled. Yummy!!! I would have thought Mr. What's for Tea or the girls would help you with the dilemma of what to do with them….. SNACK TIME!!!!!! Hope all is well for you and yours.

    Her in the US we call this checkerboard cake. It's an old recipe. The checkerboard pattern is made by making simple sheet cakes and cutting them into strips. Nicely done, I'm sure it tastes delicious ! Very pretty perfect for afternoon tea time. Marzipan or buttercream would be used. tfs 💗

    That turned our so beautiful and it looked delicious. The color on this could be changed too for a gender reveal party or someone's favorite color for a celebration or to match a wedding color, etc. This looks so fancy. Perfect for a party! When we finally get past this pandemic and can actually have parties again.
