Dreaded Noddy!

No I am not talking about Enid Blyton's little wooden man. This was a cake I used to make every week. I don't know why it was called that but it was a recipe given me by a friend and that was its name. I think it was a family joke. It was a boil and bake cake and tasted a cross between cake and bread pudding so quite stodgy but DB loved it so that's why I made it so much. Over the years I stopped making it and when DB asked about it a few years ago, I couldn't even find the recipe or remember exactly the ingredients. I tried a few others from the internet but they weren't the same.

Then I tasted some fruit cake which I really liked and it turned out that was a boil and bake cake but different from my original one. Anyway I make that now but not so often as we don't eat so much cake. The thing with this cake is that I have to remember to boil it in an evening when I can finish it off the next morning so that happened today. It makes two loaf cakes so one is to take to my older sister and BIL when I visit tomorrow and the other is to take to the monthly craft group my friend is starting tomorrow evening.

I also made a big pot of celeriac soup and had some for lunch which was delicious. Some in the fridge for tomorrow and the rest frozen.


  1. Your cake looks wonderful.

    God bless.

  2. Hi Jean, that looks delicious. When I worked for PBS in the states we had Noddy as one of our shows. It was darling. I like the idea of a Noddy cake. And that pot of soup sounds wonderful. I love freezing soups and sauces. They come in so handy! Thanks for stopping by my blog. It was lovely to see you.
