COOKING :BACK CABIN Calling all chocoholics
You don’t need to change into a pretty dress and lipstick to serve this cool cake
instead of struggling with heavy lock gates and winding gear. So come on ladies, have a go. Take strength from the ‘idle women’ who took over on working boats during the war, loaded and unloaded 70 footers with cargoes and kept the waterways open.
The downside of being busy at the helm is that the cake tin suffers. But not this month as I have the perfect solution. A fridge cake. It’s also great for those hot sunny days when the last thing you want is the oven on.
A word of warning though, it’s calorie-packed, so remember to take some exercise before you eat it if you have become a ‘tiller hog’ in your new work schedule.
