I know that I say the same thing every month…. “This month’s BakedIn Baking Club recipe is the best ever!” I apologise in advance but I’m saying it again for June’s! I absolutely adore all things cinnamon and pecans are my very favourite nut, so I was really excited when I opened June’s box and saw that it contained both ingredients. I instantly knew that this was going to be amazing. In fact, it was so amazing I made it straight away, and the day after the last slice had been eaten I made it again!
Regular readers of my blog will know that BakedIn Baking Club is a monthly subscription service that sends all the dry ingredients needed to make a wonderful recipe from the world-renowned chef Michel Roux. This month’s box also contained baking paper, a butter measure, and a skewer to test when the loaf was ready.
There was also a yummy chocolate from Rising Star Games to promote their new Cooking Mama Sweet Shop game, with a £5 off discount code to use at their online shop.
The recipe card for this loaf was very easy to follow. There is always a top tip from Michel Roux to make sure your bake is the best it can be, and this month’s was to swirl the mixture in the loaf pan more than you’d think you needed to in order to get a lovely cinnamon marbling effect. This was definitely a top tip! I swirled and swirled mine to the point where I thought my loaf was going to end up just brown, but I actually think it could possibly have done with a bit more swirling!
This loaf was absolutely delicious on it’s own, but since my holiday in America last year where I discovered how good cream cheese icing is with anything cinnamon, I decided to spread some of the icing on a slice, just like spreading butter. Oh my word…. that was a scrummy addition which made it even more indulgent!
(The recipe to my cream cheese icing can be found HERE and I’d recommend it for any sweet cinnamon bakes).
I’ve made loaf cakes plenty of times before in different flavours, but can honestly say this cinnamon and pecan loaf is the best loaf cake I have ever tasted. It was so easy to make, and the end result was just incredible. It had the perfect amount of cinnamon and the pecans gave it a beautiful crunch and extra flavour. This will be made time and time again!
That is one of the great things about the Baking Club. The recipe cards tell you exactly how much of all the dry ingredients are included, so you can make it again at a later date. The card is also wipe-clean so you can easily wipe any splashes off it. (I’m a messy baker and always end up with splashes of mixture and clouds of flour and icing all over everything).
