    Glorious Butter Cake
    I was recently given a set of Jamie Oliver DVD's as a housewarming gift. It took me a while to get around to them but I finally watched the Ministry of Food the other day and was really surprised that someone could feed their toddler doner kebabs every night. It was also frustrating to see that almost an entire town of people were at risk of heart disease, diabetes and obesity because they didn't know how to cook. Whatever happened to learning how to cook from your parents?! One of the tasks that Jamie set for himself and the group of people participating in the show was to pass on a recipe. It's so magical how a simple task like this can really change a community. I've made this cake for my family, friends and colleagues over the years and everyone has been enamoured by this glorious slice of heaven. It's a simple cake. Not just in terms of ingredients but also preparation. I love making it just to see the look of comfort and disbelief in people's eyes when they devour a slice of this yummy cake. I have been asked for this recipe many times. This is the first time I have actually put pen to paper. So, here it is my dearest friends and family. Enjoy.
