For me, there's nothing more comforting than sitting back with a cup of tea and a slice of cake, and on a busy Monday afternoon, my tired soul was replenished by Tesco's new girl in town, Kate, and her new range of individually wrapped cakes (and a cuppa with milk, no sugars, in the mugs provided for me- thanks, Kate!).
Available in Lemon Drizzle and Chocolate Fudge variations, these little squares of heaven are extremely moist and have that homemade decadence that supermarket brands often lack, and each small slice is easily enough to satisfy a sweet tooth (unless you're my dad... maybe these aren't man-sized portions). I'm partial to a bit of chocolate when I'm faced with the option (what girl isn't?!), so naturally the chocolate fudge cake was my favourite with its rich buttercream and chocolate curl toppings, but the zesty lemon sponges were also finished with just the right amount of lemon juice and sugar pearls to create a perfect balance between tart and sweet.
Brand new to Tesco, these cake squares come individually wrapped for freshness in boxes of five for £2.00, making them great fix for a lazy girl's afternoon tea (ahem...) or to throw in your work bag for a lunch time pick-me-up. All of Kate's Cakes are baked using free-range eggs and GM-free ingredients, and each one is lovingly finished by hand.
