Directed here from Personal so Hi All and treat me gently! Looking for recipes for cakes that survive and improve foir not being eaten for a couple of weeks and will put up with being sent through the post! Son in military has just deployed overseas. Regular parcels of home made cake go down well in the wardroom. Already have great recipes for ginger, lemon drizzle and fruit that are popular but would like some alternatives to tickle the tastebuds. Dense loaf-type cakes have survived well in previous experiences. Would love other suggestions!
