Vanilla and Bay Loaf

Introduction

This is a lovely, subtle loaf, with the bay adding a herbaceous note alongside the classic vanilla. If you have time, you can steep the bay for longer than the time it takes to make the cake batter – it’ll give you a more pronounced flavour. One to make when you’re in the mood for a proper slice of cake.
