Weekend Baking


I don't know about you but I love to bake but I have to be in the mood for it and usually bake when a recipe inspires me or the lunch box filler tins are empty.  This weekend I flicked through my Donna Hay Magazine and came across a recipe for Raspberry Upside Down Cakes.



I love anything that is "Raspberry" so knew that this recipe would be lovely.  It is a White Wings "Donna Hay" Recipe and can be found HERE.


Mine look a little different from hers


But taste delicious


Now this picture is quite misleading because there is only 2 of these little cakes left - They were a real hit !


Whilst I was in the mood and with an abundance of fresh lemons given to me by friends I decided to make a Lemon Curd Cake.


This is a wonderful little cake and very easy to make.  I will share the recipe in my next newsletter.  We have just planted our own lemon tree so I am looking forward to having a nice supply of lemons of our own in the coming years.



It is another beautiful day in paradise here today but as much as I want to get out in the garden this little bundle of loveliness is calling my name.  I must of course OBEY.

I hope you too are having a wonderful weekend.

Hugs - Fee XX

It must be the day for baking!! We are having a wet,windy day with a few storms coming and going, so it's just the kind of day for making some shortbread, and possible some muffins, I think. I have been very lucky and recently got a KitchenAid mixer. It makes my baking so much easier and much more pleasurable these days.

Your baking looks very yummy Fee. Will definitely have to be trying some of your recipes :-)
