The older I get, the more I feel like Saturday is just an extension of the working week. There always seems to be a flurry of activity and a list of jobs that I never quite seem to find the end of. (I hate ending a sentence with 'of' but it is Sunday, so please excuse me.
I invited my parents over for a morning cuppa so a cake needed to be made. Having a stack of easy cake recipes at hand always makes the job so much easier, with my two favourites being Gooseberry Jam's plain cake and the super easy apple cake.
After a quick trip to the farmers market to stock up on fruit, I decided the apple option was the way to go. Once again I halved the sugar as the fruit is so sweet. I ran out of butter so I made up the difference with one of my market purchases. The fruit that I soaked after last weekend was substituted for the plain sultanas.
The aroma through the house as I pulled it from the oven was gorgeous. The orange juice from the soaked fruit was so sweet.
A slice of warm cake, to accompany a cup of tea on this chilly morning, helped make for a relaxing was to spend time with family.
Don't forget about the giveaway of the Environmental Toothbrushes. I will send these anywhere, so please say 'hi' and add your name to the list. You still have another week.
