Diet is a four letter word: CAKE

Theme today:   Cake
I love most varieties of cake.
Top of the list is cheesecake now, especially since finding a no cook recipe (melting butter does not count as cooking!)
I made this one in March and it was one of my best.

Second favourite is carrot cake
This is a slightly better (but not much) for you as it doesn’t have the cream cheese frosting. MOH gave us a fool proof recipe and we made it on one of our visits.

Third would be one of my sponges as I’ve found the secret to making them light and fluffy

Next is a bought peanut butter stack.
I have not had one of these for well over a year, not since joining SW in May 2019

and finally, coffee and walnut cake.

A colleague of Hubby’s made one for my 50th birthday. The last one I made was in the cottage. Time to dig out the recipe I think…… my basic sponge with coffee added, and coffee butter icing, topped with walnuts.

Now that I’ve drooled over this post and almost flooded my laptop, time to get back to real living and syn counting.

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    My mother would make a chocolate coffee cake and make a glaze with powdered sugar and coffee. Everyone seemed to like it but me – but then I’ve never been a fan of coffee (and still don’t drink it).
