Fortunately other people never turn down cakes
When I first started this blog I had intentionally meant for it to be just photos of the meals I cooked us for dinner, an extension of my facebook food page in case someone wanted to know how I’d done something, but I’m enjoying doing it so much it’s become a real project, which is why I feel the need to start to challenge my somewhat poor baking skills.
I’ve not much of a sweet tooth and I do think that if I bake 10 cup cakes..
Then that’s 10 cup cakes more to eat than if I hadn’t, But I do like the decorating bit.
Fortunately other people never turn down cakes and as it’s Mothers day on Sunday I made these for my mum..
So I decided to use my new food processor and make
I used this recipe , simply because it had 7g of dried yeast in it, and that’s how much is in a packet of easy yeast from Allinson’s.
The dough turned out really well and rolled nicely too.
I used mixed fruit, cinnamon and mixed spice in mine.
I could have probably rolled it a little tighter..
But it cut up ok..
and turned out beautifully, well I thought so anyway..
But I ate 3 over 24 hours, which is totally unnecessary.
My next sweet project will be American muffins, and a really long walk afterwards..
