let there be cake

last year I made a resolution to start using all my recipe books (I have an awful lot) and somehow it just didn't happen.

this year I have an accomplice - Miss K!

last night it was music to my ears when a little voice said

"mummy you know next week is half term"


"can we make banana bread like Auntie C and ginger cake, and can we bake every day?"

that's my girl!

to celebrate I made marmalade buns from Cherry cake and ginger beer, well I made 6 buns, and one loaf - typically it wasn't cooked when it was time to go to E's swimming lesson, so I turned the oven off and left it in, and now it's a bit dark - I just put extra icing on.
and because they have marmalade in I had some for breakfast. so much better than cornflakes!

Miss K is holding out for Grandpa's birthday cake, because tradition dictates chocolate!


  1. banana bread??? every day????? ooooo can i have an invite please :-D
    love doing baking with my daughter especially now she is a bit older and actually attempts to follow a recipe!

  2. I think there might be a lot of baking on our to do list next week!

    The chocolate cake looks lovely.

  3. Chocolate cake was always an essential part of MY dad's birthday, too. Gee! Wonder where you and I got our, um, appreciation of chocolate????

    I can't seem to get past the fact that that looks like melted mozzarella cheese in the first photo. Better send me some to prove it's not.

  4. That settles it. This afternoon the Littlest Latte and I are baking.

  5. Yes please, that looks so tasty, if you could send some to my house that would be lovely!
    Love Lou xxx

  6. I'm trying to use my cookbooks more this year as well...that cake looks so yummy!

  7. yummy cake... both my girls love to bake... i think having sweet tooths provide the incentive.
    have a great half term x

  8. I think I could eat cake all day at the moment ..... yum!
