Sunday Morning Cake

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.

Take care


  1. Sounds delicious. I'd quite like to pop by for a cuppa and a slice of this too. x

  2. I know what you mean about Saturdays. I now make an effort to do as much house work as I can Thursday and Friday nights, that way I am not doing it Saturday.
    So far I am not going too badly with Plastic free July but it is not easy in this plastic filled world.

    1. Fiona, PFJ is certainly a challenge. At the moment the trickiest thing I am finding to deal with is milk.


Thanks so much for dropping by. I really appreciate any comments you have to make.
