Before I forget. This month’s recipe on the calendar is Lardy Cake – not the most figure conscious thing you can eat. My Grandmother often offered a slice with a cup of tea, but the word “lard” usually put me off. After making this I realised this was a big mistake. The recipe was provided by my Mum because I couldn’t originally find my Grandmothers version, popular recipes were often cropped from various sources, and we suspect she knew the recipe by heart.
