Stress cake

During my end of term exams I thought my head was going to explode so I packed my work up and took myself off to my parent's house to put their oven to good use to relieve my stress.

iced in a hurry so not looking great!!

I used the recipe from the Primrose Bakery book I was given for my birthday, which itself is an adpation of Delia's coffee cake which my mum made me for my birthday, so it was interesting to compare.  This one used a drizzle of a coffee and sugar syrup over the baked sponges which left the cake looking marbled inside; I was very pleased with the sponge as it was very little and soft and moist and the syrup gave the marbled sponge a strong coffee taste.
