One of those days when my forgettery works far too well. I planned to make a rhubarb cake from "A Year in a Bottle" for the Wednesday morning tea platter. That's where things went awry. Didn't look at the recipe properly and added two eggs instead of one. That's not too bad, but then I … Continue reading Rhubarb Crumble Topped Cake

Funny the things you remember. Looking for a sweet treat to take to the Wednesday morning tea, I recalled a recipe given to me about 30 years ago. I remember its being hand written in the old family Red Book, as we call it. The recipe? Jill's Apple Cake. It was a good way to … Continue reading Apple Cake – so good!

Spent a very informative and interesting day with a friend yesterday. We were invited to go to watch, and assist if we liked, make salami. I've never done this before, and so was hugely interested in the entire process. It was a fantastic day with lots learned and things to apply. Plus, my goodness, what … Continue reading Salami – so that’s how you make it!
The gluten free class here has just finished. I really do love this class topic. Lots of things were made today as per the photos here. Most of the recipes were from my gluten free book "From My Kitchen to Yours". However, it's fantastic when someone in the class says "I really do miss, most … Continue reading Gluten free class today
So here's the much requested recipe for the choc/orange Marble cake. It's just a combination of two really simple cake recipes handed down through our family for generations. The optional patterned icing just gives it a little something extra. Each of these cakes can be baked as separate entities in either an 18cm round or … Continue reading Choc Orange Marble Cake recipe
