Father's Day Bakings - Cake & Bread 4Hubby

Today is Father's Day - Happy Father's Day to all daddies out there, hope u all had a great time today :)

As for my kids' daddy, he requested for orange pound cake - he loves pound cake :)
That's great cos I have some oranges sitting in the fridge still untouched

Here it is....I made this cake before - recipe is from HERE
As yummy and delicious as before, especially with a cup of coffee or tea :)

And I also baked a heart shaped chocolate and strawberry bread

Recipe is from HERE
I divided the dough into 2 - one mixed with 1 tsp chocolate paste, and the other one mixed with 1 tsp strawberry paste (I kneaded each in the breadmaker for 5minutes til the color is even)
I rolled each dough to long thick strips - I arranged the chocolate dough outside and strawberry inside (I used heart shape pan)
Egg wash and bake in preheated oven of 180degC for approx 15minutes
Brush with margarine while still hot

Mmmm...the heart shape inside does not look like how a heart shape supposed to be huh? *grin*

Just like before, this recipe made a soft fluffy bread - now with a hint of chocolate and strawberry taste
But I personally still find the taste a lil too plain so I spread some raspberry jam or nutella - YUM! :)
See the bottom picture below, I cut it like a slice of cake hihihi....

I just wished my dad were here with me so he could taste them too
Too bad he's not in town for now :)

I'm submitting this hearty bread to Aspiring Bakers #8 June'11 Bread Seduction hosted by Jasmine from The Sweetylicious at this LINK
