Bread Baking Babes in the fat – again! Lardy Cake

Lordy, Lordy it’s Lardy!

Cake, that is.

Lardy Cake.

Okay, “Modern” Lardy Cake.


It’s been one of those week and my witty, warped words have wandered.

And I’m late…. Sorry, Babes!

Explanations follow…. I doubt that you’ll be surprised to hear it involved food and copious amounts of wine.

Back to the fat, er, I mean, Modern Lardy Cake

As it happens, Lien, of Notitie van Lien and our host kitchen for the month, watches some of the same cooking shows as I do on TV.

However, Lien is much more adventurous than I and actually decided to make the Lardy Cake she saw, although she did have to make some changes.

We Babes are a flexible lot….

(That sounds ever so much better than saying we always know best…. Which, of course, we do, but we’ll stick with ‘flexible’.)

Just so you know – Lien’s recipe doesn’t use actual lard.

If you want to bake it yourself (and you should) check out Notitie van Lien for the recipe and details for being a Bread Baking Buddy.

 I think a cup of steaming, dark hot chocolate and a big wedge of this, warm, slathered in butter will be just the thing Christmas morning.

Or any morning…..

Go. Bake!

  1. Seeing all of these beautiful breads (I refuse to keep calling it cake… ;-)) makes me realize that _I_ knead to bake this again. It was sooooo good.

    Thanks once again for showing all the lardy cakes on one page. (You should re-add your name to the list of BBBabes too)

  2. But you have lovely folds, Tanna!

    Elizabeth, I did – and actually didn’t know I was gone. Darn computer hobgoblins!

    Kate, it might even replace my traditional cookie breakfast!
