Ruby Tandoh, my original GBBO queen, has written her last feature as the food columnist in The Guardian’s ‘Cook’. I’ve enjoyed reading her columns and have built a decent collection of her cut outs in my recipe scrap book. Her writing has been honest, her flavours have been adventurous and I will miss her.
She ended her years at The Guardian with treacle pancakes and chocolate cookie recipes. I, however, have chosen to wave Ruby off with a recipe I’ve collected (and had the ribbon in the page of for a while now); Ruby Tandoh’s Lemon Rosemary Drizzle Cake.
This recipe featured in The Guardian’s ‘Cook’ on 14th February 2015. I hadn’t realised it was Valentine’s Day before writing this – even more fitting!
I followed the recipe to a tee, but found my drizzle came up a little short. I suppose the cake is drizzled all over but there wasn’t very much to absorb beyond the surface, and mine doesn’t have a sugary crisp as Ruby’s does in her picture.
You can keep up with Ruby and whatever new fabulous adventure she embarks on on her Twitter. I expect today will be the start of the new ‘Cook’ columnist and I wish them luck – they’ve got big shoes to fill.
