Nigella Experiment – Day Four – Gateau Breton


Day 3 – Gateau Breton (page 11)

This is another cake from the section titled ‘Loaf and Plain Cakes‘ and Nigella isn’t kidding…they are just, well, SO plain!! and a little bit boring. Only two more to go after this one to get to a new section of filled cakes which look lovely.

Anyway, sticking to my commitment to cooking all of the recipes in turn I dutifully made the next one in the book the Gateau Breton (sorry for blurry photo it’s quite hard sometimes to re-photograph the pics in the book):


Otherwise known as a Brittanybutter cake it was in fact quite fun to make as used a different method to any of the others. Instead of mixing up ingredients you use a dough hook to make a golden sticky dough and squish it into the cake tin by hand.
